This ONLY applies if your order is shipping freight and you want to ship it to a location that has what the fright industry calls “accessorial charges”. These include LIFT GATE, RESIDENTIAL, and REMOTE ACCESS. If you are looking at that as a shipping option, you can always pick up your freight at the terminal to avoid fees like lift gate and residential delivery. These fees are not mutually exclusive (meaning you can have any or all of them apply).
RESIDENTIAL – If the property you are on has a dwelling space for human being on it, you are likely in a place the freight companies consider to be residential. The same applies to many churches and schools and anywhere else that is surrounded by homes.
LIFT GATE – If you don’t have a working forklift or a freight dock at the correct height for a semi truck trailer, this fee applies.
REMOTE ACCESS – If the freight company considers your location to be remote, this will apply. Usually if the truck has to drive more than a few miles from a major highway or interstate this is possible. If you are really difficult to access or in an area without road signs or pavement this will likely also apply.
