Shipping by Common Carrier/Freight:
Given the weight of many of the items that are sold by BEAUTY EQUIPMENT SOLUTIONS, shipping by UPS is not always possible and a common carrier/freight company must be used. PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING FREIGHT DELIVERY GUIDELINES.
The shipping charges paid for items cover only tailgate delivery to a customer. Tailgate delivery means that the truck carrying a delivery will pull up to the front of the delivery destination, move the items delivered to the back of the truck, and open the back of the truck. For these types of deliveries, IT IS THE CUSTOMER'S RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE THEIR SHIPMENT OFF THE TRUCK AND CARRY IT INSIDE.
If the customer needs a liftgate to move the delivery from the back of the truck to the ground, the customer will be charged an additional $65.00.
This is because most delivery trucks do not come standard with a liftgate. Even with a liftgate delivery, however, the customer is still responsible for bringing the delivery inside.
If the customer needs inside delivery, the customer will be charged an additional $65.00. In other words, if the customer does not have a loading dock or forklift (and, therefore, requires a liftgate), the customer will be charged the shipping price + liftgate fee + inside delivery fee. With inside delivery, the truck driver assists the customer to bring the delivery inside.
A $85.00 residential delivery charge also applies if the customer requires delivery to a home or home-based business.
