Truck & Oversized Shipping
Delivery Facts: Some freight lines are unable to deliver to residential
addresses, however delivery to businesses with scheduled hours and
a loading dock is usually not a problem. You may want to consider
having your purchase shipped to a business you know has the necessary
unloading facilities. Please keep in mind the receiving party will
be responsible for using the correct receiving process. Alternate
ship-to locations are to be confirmed by customer before shipment.
In some cases, the freight line can call you to pick up the freight
at their terminal that is closest to your home. Most terminals are
open for pick-up 24 hours a day.
Unloading: There are few freight companies that we deal with that
offer lift-gate service for residential delivery. There is a substantial
added charge for this service. Motor freight companies are not responsible
for unloading. They will move it to the end of the truck (Tailgate
Delivery). It's your responsibility to take the freight off from
this point. Keep in mind that most engine hoists won't go high enough
to lift engines from their truck. Please arrange to have equipment
and assistance on hand, as freight lines will not wait for either

Proper receiving is required to prevent unnecessary losses in customers
parts and accessories and to facilitate handling of claims against
carriers. Customers should observe the following instructions when
receiving shipments from gmpartsdirect.com or when receiving material
scheduled by gmpartsdirect.com for shipments direct to the customer
from a source of supply. Receiving of Parts and Accessories includes
acceptance of the shipment from the carrier and processing of the
shipment by the customer. Customer assumes all responsibilities
of ownership upon receiving of merchandise.
Acceptance of Shipment from the Carrier
- Check for visible damage to containers or loose pieces.
- Check customer name, master order number, and piece numbers
on shipping tags to make certain that:
- The exact number of cartons, boxes, bundles, or loose pieces
received corresponds to the information shown on the delivery
- Each piece is consigned to the customer receiving the shipment.
If there is any piece shortage or visible damage, the customer
should call the carrier's representative's attention to damaged
material or shortage and make a detailed notation
on both copies of the carrier's delivery receipt, showing
the exact nature of the damage and/or shortage. (e.g., piece number
4 with a 6 inch dent on crown of fender, wrapping torn, piece number
7 - carton and wheel disc crushed; piece number 8 - missing). The
carrier's representative is to sign first initial and last name
on both copies of the delivery receipt. The customer should make
certain this notation is entered on the delivery receipt before
signing the carrier's copy of the form.
It is not possible to complete a claim with a carrier without a
detailed statement relative to the nature and extent of the shortage
or damage being noted on the delivery receipt as provided above.
Therefore, a customer should not sign the delivery receipt for any
type of incomplete or damaged shipment without exceptions being
noted and signed by the carrier's representative.
Notations such as "one piece short" or "one piece
damaged" are not acceptable. A more detailed notation such
as, "piece number five, one fender short" or "one
fender damaged extensively around the headlight," isrequired.
These guidelines also apply to carriers that
utilize a delivery manifest or electronic board (i.e., FedEx, UPS,
EMERY WorldWide). The driver is REQUIRED to make any notation at
