Re: [DMCForum] Freight Shipping



They didn't even give me an option. Just told me, "This has to go to a
business, and you'll need a forklift to get it off the truck." This
was after I'd paid, if I recall correctly. I'm like, WTF? Thanks for
the notice. I'm fairly certain most people don't have access to a
forklift.

Thankfully, my employer happened to have a little loading dock with a
forklift and was lax enough that, when I remembered to tell them at
the last minute - "Oh by the way, I sent a new engine for my car here.
Can I borrow your forklift tomorrow afternoon?" - they were cool with
it.
