Freight Delivery & Unloading Service
Eastern Jungle Gym ships all items that exceed the limits set by small-parcel carriers via common carrier or motor freight. You can count on us for quick, efficient delivery on all large orders.
Delivery transit time is from 1-7 days depending on shipping location. When the shipment arrives at the freight terminal near your location, you will be contacted by the carrier to arrange a delivery appointment. While the carrier may allow some flexibility in appointment times, lengthy delays in appointments may result in storage fees.

Freight services are prepaid, and no additional charges should be presented to you at the time of delivery. However, you may request additional services of the carrier (yard delivery, garage delivery, or address change) when the carrier contacts you for a delivery appointment.
It is very important that you thoroughly inspect the merchandise for any damages that may have occurred during transport. ANY damages that are discovered must be notated on the bill of lading/delivery receipt that you sign. Have the driver initial any damage report and be sure to obtain a copy of this delivery document.
