The freight delivery process starts with freight pickup at your home, business, or any other requested location (this can be done in person by one of our drivers) and then goes through freight preparation for shipment which includes verification that all items are ready for transport and weighed before loading onto the freight carrier’s vehicle which will finally result in freight delivery when arriving at its final destination.
