Shipped gates via common freight carrier, delivered  at the foot of your drive. Cross-country shipments are commonly packed in a durable wood crate or ribbed cardboard crates
Any circumstances that prevent the driver from accessing your property or off-loading your gate are the homeowner’s responsibility.
More information can be found under Shipping.

Note: Although there have only been three occurrences of damage over the years, it is always advisable to have someone present during delivery. If there is obvious damage to the crate, make a note of it on the driver’s delivery receipt. You will have 5 days to report a claim with the carrier, followed by a site inspection by the carrier’s inspector visit prior to honoring your claim. Without the notation on the delivery receipt, or a claim filed within the time frame, claims are still possible, but involve more red tape and with less certainty of success.
