About Inside Delivery
When freight is delivered to a residential address, inside delivery involves the LTL Freight Carrier moving the pallet to the driveway or garage. Drivers will not take freight inside a home or up steps. 

It is important to note that most carriers have policies prohibiting drivers from even attempting in-home pick-up or delivery. This policy is to avoid complaints that the driver tracked in mud, damaged walls or doors and the like. Additionally, there are potential freight liability issues if an accident or injury occurs inside. 

Therefore, it’s in every party’s best interest that the freight simply is delivered to a convenient outdoor location. Planning for this is imperative when your freight is delivered to a residence, or you could potentially face delays or have to make a redelivery.
