    I found a motor for my turf tiger. It can only be drop shipped. That means the driver does not touch the load an you need a dock or forklift to get it off. they will not deliver to a residential address. Any suggestions? thanks.

    I had a motor delivered to a buisness that is local here in town that has a dock. Just make sure you tell them whats up. Make sure you know the people and you can trust them. Leave a # they can reach you at . You dont need a fork truck, there quite lite.

    Find out from the shipper who the trucking carrier will be - then see if they have a terminal near you - you can pick it up at their terminal and will usually cost less.
    Only other alternative I have used, is to have it shipped to a nearby factory or shop that has a dock or forklift where you know someone
