Security Station Shipping FAQ

What is the lowest cost delivery method?

The most efficient way to ship your order is to a business (commercial address) with a loading dock.

When do I need a lift gate?

A liftgate is used to lower your security station from the truck to the ground.

You need a lift gate unless you have a forklift or loading dock or you ordered only one (1) security podium and will have two people available at the time of delivery to unload it.

Why does residential delivery cost more?

Freight carriers charge an extra fee to deliver to residential zones because they are harder to access. Shipping freight with a residential service also adds a day to the lead time because a delivery appointment is necessary.

Residential delivery with a lift gate does not include inside delivery.

For these reasons, we recommend delivering to a commercial address whenever possible.

Is a condominium considered residential?

Yes, because it is in a residential zone you will need a residential delivery.

When will my order be delivered?

Current lead times are within 4-6 weeks of delivery. Need it by a certain date? Give us a call and we’ll do our best to accommodate your deadline.

We will always do everything within our power to meet your lead times.

Does someone need to be there for my delivery?

Yes, someone is required to sign for every security station delivery.

How can I save on shipping costs?

You can save on shipping costs by shipping 2+ security stations together. You can also save by shipping any of the items listed here at no additional cost when you order a security station.

Do you provide additional delivery services?

Yes, we can on request. Please give us a call at 877-739-0354.

Issues at Delivery?

We send tracking emails with the full breakdown on receiving the freight, we send tracking numbers so you can track your shipment with an estimated ETA. It is the customer’s responsibility to communicate deliveries and customers’ responsibility to be on site for receiving the freight. All redeliveries charges will be passed along to the customers. If you require a specific date and time, we recommend adding an appointment for delivery which is free.

Refusing and returning Freight?

If there is an issue at delivery, please contact the number on our website ASAP. If a shipment is refused, or the customer is choosing to return the freight – the customer is liable for the shipping charges there and back. This amount will be taken out of the refund once we receive the freight back.
