Will They Put my Shuffleboard Table in the Garage?
The service does not include inside delivery or putting the table in the garage. Customers are responsible to provide enough labor to remove the table from the truck. See the picture below of a 22’ table crated, boxed and ready to ship. A larger table like this will not fit on the lift-gate, so lift gate service will not be added and we advise you have four or more people to unload. Below is a picture of a large table how the packing is done, you see the straps you can cut off and remove the two cabinet boxes that often have legs packed inside. Typical weight of a cabinet is 200 to 300 pounds the crate on the bottom is the heavy part. The playboard is packed inside the crate and net weight on a 20 foot to 22 foot board can be 450 to 500 pounds, the crate is about 250 pounds so total shipping weight on a 20 or 22 foot table can be 1200 pounds.
When do they deliver my new handcrafted shuffleboard?
The trucking companies or delivery service will contact you the day before delivery and set up an appointment. Normally this is an 4-8 hour window but the driver will usually call 1 hour in advance day of arrival. Once you have been notified the table is shipping, normal transit time is 5 to 7 days and shuffleboard table deliveries are scheduled Monday through Friday. The curb side delivery service included means the truck driver is responsible to get the table off of the truck and curb side. You must provide a least two or more people to help unload. If you have ordered installation service then normally the installers will receive the table and bring out to your home in their own trucks to set up and install.
What other options for delivery of my handcrafted shuffleboard?

In the video shown a truck driver helped both get the table off the truck and into the garage but it was not his responsibility.
