We use one of three methods of shipping based on your needs. By default, we use the shipping method that results in the least amount of cost for the customer. You are welcome to use your own carrier, or pick up your order.
- Our own Astro delivery truck for deliveries in our delivery range that meet the minimums for that area.
- LTL carriers for large items and stakes to be shipped outside of our delivery area or those larger orders with a rush status.
- UPS Ground for small items and/or orders of stakes depending on size and quantity.
Shipping via Astro Truck:
Our freightliner is all-enclosed to ensure dry and safe delivery.
The truck is equipped with a life gate. This allows us to easily place your product indoors and/or on most paved surfaces of your choice without the need for a powered fork truck.
- Your order is placed where you need it without having to provide any assistance. This way you can keep your employees where you need them most!
- Our truck fits in places that LTL semi's do not.
