Freight Facts

Handling receipt of your shipment requires careful planning. Please review this page for a better understanding of shipping options and your responsibilities regarding acceptance of your order. 

All freight (including FREE Economy Shipping) is based on delivery to accessible liquor stores, supermarkets, convenience stores and other commercial addresses. If your business has limited access* or if you request shipment to a residential address, we will contact you regarding additional shipping fees charged by the freight company. 

If your shipment weighs more than 8,000 lbs. it will fill an entire truck and will be transported by itself. If your shipment does not quite require the entire space, it will be transported along with other partial loads (LTL Shipping) via a common carrier freight company.

• Offered on select products to accessible commercial addresses in the continental United States.
• Includes ONLY delivery to your shipping address. 
• Driver is not permitted to assist beyond bringing the equipment to the open truck door.

• If you don't have a loading dock, your personnel must be able to lower the equipment to the ground from the truck using a forklift, unless you purchase Lift Gate Service.
