LTL (Pallet) Shipping Notes
- Liftgate: The Liftgate option provides lift gate service for delivery, if needed, to unload a shipment when loading docks are unavailable. Lift gate service is generally not necessary for pallets sent from Twin Creeks.
- Residential / Commercial Address Types:Freight carriers will typically deliver to addresses they define as "Commercial" for a lower rate than for "Residential" addresses. UPS defines a residential delivery as a delivery to a location that is a home, including a business operating out of a home. UPS validates addresses against a USPS database which classifies an address as Residential or Commercial based primarily on the address’ location. A rural address will usually be classified as a Residential address.
- Method of Delivery:LTL (Pallet) deliveries are made by tractor trailer trucks. Trailers used for Residential deliveries may vary from 40'-53' long. When considering this shipping method, please ensure that the tractor trailer can make it to your home.

We are typically notified by UPS Freight if this is the case for a shipment.
