    This is how a delivery was made to my shop on Friday. They left the twppallets right in front of my door. I could not move anything to be able to move these pallets. They came back 7 hours later and moved them for me, and told me it was no big deal and people make mistakes. I guess their mistake cost thier company a good customer

    Not to be an a$$ here but the picture doesn't show much so where should they have gone?

    Obvious answer would be in front of the door so you could move them inside. Unless you have asked for them to be dropped off in such and such area, thats where i'd have dropped them. Call me stupid but closer to the door to move them in makes sense, pull your pallet jack out and move them in.

    Um guys, I have a tractor, sitting on a trailer, in front of the truck. Why would you leave something in front of the door. Their is plenty of room off to the side to set things. Same delivery guy as last year as well. I don't use a pallet jack, kind of hard to stack pallets with one of those.

    So you have a forklift then? or Your tractor has forks i take it.

    How do you not have the means to move them out of your way but you have the means to stack them. That makes no sense, unless your telling me you packed your tractor with forks in the back on a trailer and put everything else in the way. :hammerhead:
    Same delivery man huh, well maybe he put em there to pi$$ on your parade or maybe he's just stupid. Who knows...

    I really don't see something that would get me so bent out of shape to not have them deliver my supplies. I mean if thats my biggest worry of the day... It's a good day!!!!

    Im suprised they came back as well, most drivers are on a tight schedule and they drop where ever they can to keep on there schedule for other deliveries. Did the company has directions on where to drop the pallets or did driver just drop it where he wanted?
