I also have a home based business and have had that questioned asked
of me but have never had to pay extra. A lot of times on the form
the shipper needs to check a box which states residential or
Because mine is also a residential delivery my driver is ALWAYS
someone different, if it is not sent next day morning delivery the
delivery times can go as late as 7 p.m. (residential delivery time)
and they do not carry any supplies on their trucks. Last week I was
expecting a package, tracking on line said it was delivered, well it
was delivered at someone else’s home. Thank goodness Saturday
afternoon a very, very nice woman drove up and gave me my package
that I desperately needed.
Maybe all the home based business now are creating a hassle for the
delivery operations, who knows. Did your supplier say WHY it was
going to cost you more, just curious.
