We recently asked a customer if he would document the delivery of his new Fire Magic grill. Carl T, of Sedona, Arizona, was kind enough to provide a few images and a brief account of his experience. We hope this will help you better understand what to expect when its comes time for your BBQ delivery.Thanks again Carl!
| The freight company called me the day before to arrange for someone to accept the delivery. They were able to give me a general time frame when I could expect the truck to arrive between noon and 1:00. Around 12:15 the semi truck pulled up in font of the house and I met the driver Mitch. When he moved the pallet forward I was surprised, to be honest shocked by how large the box was. |
|Mitch used his power dolly and lift gate to remove the pallet from the truck. Once he had the BBQ off the truck I asked if he would mind helping me move it to the garage. I know not every driver will do this but he said it was no big deal since we have a pretty manageable driveway. |
| Once I had a moment I opened the box and made a quick inspection to make sure everything was ok with the grill, then signed off on the delivery. I was impressed by how well it was packaged, both inside the BBQ and surrounding it was protected by large foam blocks. |
|I easily removed the BBQ from the box as the casters were already attached, 99% of the unit came preassembled. The only thing I needed to attach were the side shelves and cooking grids. It actually took longer for me to remove the white protective seal then it did to attach the shelves. Just a tip don’t cut your fingernails for a couple days prior to delivery, the protective cover can be hard to get off. |
Once we had all the protective material removed we dropped in the flavor grids and grates and we were done. All and all it was an easy process and I was happy that I did not need 10 different tools and 3 trips to the hardware store to be grilling that same night.
