Most of our compressors are required to go by LTL shipping. They require freight truck lines to deliver these to ensure they do not come damaged. Often this will require these compressors to be put onto a smaller truck and require a lift gate for residential deliveries. If a lift gate is required (no loading dock access or forklift access) please check the lift gate option in our shipping options.
