Smokers order directly with us are drop shipped directly from our warehouse in Lancaster, PA using a truck with a LIFT GATE DELIVERY option: This includes liftgate service to remove your smoker from the freight truck. Ideal for residential deliveries that do not have loading docks or forklifts. We recommend this type of delivery for 99% of our customers. Lift Gate Delivery does NOT include: unpacking the smoker, transit on the pallet jack over dirt, rocks, grass, up driveways of any kind. If the freight carrier cannot get up your driveway, they will deliver to the safest spot nearest to your house on the street. You will be responsible for moving your smoker shipment up your driveway. Maybe we can do this in house with a Penske or Ryder Rental lets discuss.

If you selected STANDARD SHIPPING: This is ideal for commercial addresses with a loading dock or forklift available. Standard shipping means that the truck will arrive to your delivery address and you will be responsible for moving it off of the truck to your desired location. Please keep in mind, freight trucks can be 4+ feet off the ground, and smoker shipments can be over a total weight of  300 lbs. If you choose to offload the truck yourself and damage your smoker in the process, BMSH Foods will not be held liable for any damages.
