Inside Delivery and Pickup Services for Businesses

Inside delivery refers to the practice of delivering a freight shipment to a location other than a loading dock, such as the main entrance of a building. Many businesses don't have loading docks so the freight service typically needs to bring the pallet as close to the entrance as possible. However, if a pallet is too large to fit inside the entryway, it will be left outside.

If the freight needs to be moved to a specific floor or further inside a building, there will generally be an additional charge.

When To Use Inside Delivery and Pickup

Inside delivery is particularly useful for heavy or oversized shipments or when receiving a large quantity of goods all at once. Examples of goods that may require inside delivery services include: 

  • Medical Device Equipment
  • Laboratory Equipment
  • IT Servers
  • Machinery and Robotics
  • Trade Show Equipment

Inside Delivery vs. White Glove Delivery

Inside delivery typically only includes the delivery of goods to a specific room inside an office or industrial building. If you also require setup and removal of crates and other shipping materials, it is necessary to opt for white glove delivery service.
