Helpful Delivery Information:
Due to the weight of our trucks and the material, it’s hauling, we do not leave paved surfaces. Our drivers are professionals and will make the final decision on where to dump the material based on the safety of your property and the dump truck. If you request that our truck dump materials in an area that could be subject to damage, we will have you sign a Dump Agreement beforehand.
You do not need to be present for the delivery, however, to ensure proper placement of material, we highly recommend your presence. If you can not be on-site, please place an inanimate object (tarp, X marks the spot with sidewalk chalk, cones, buckets, etc.) in the area where you would like the material dumped. Keep in mind that certain factors may prevent us from placing materials in the desired location.
It’s not common that the dyed mulches will stain your driveway, but we recommend that you place a tarp down when accepting dyed mulches.
Gates and Entryways
Trucks need a minimum of 10 feet of width to pass through gates.
We do our best to monitor the weather but sometimes Mother Nature has other plans. When it’s raining, snowing or freezing, we may not be able to complete your delivery. We will do everything we can to get your material delivered on time but the weather may push the delivery out a few days further.
Children and Pets
Please try to keep pets and children out of the vicinity during the delivery. Drivers are unable to see objects in their mirrors that are directly behind the truck.
