Delivery & Inventory : 5 hours
The wing kit arrived by motor freight on Wednesday, April 21. The freight company had called me about a week in advance to tell me that it would be delivered sometime in the afternoon, and that it would come "freight collect."
The driver called me at 12 noon to say that he was about 30 minutes away, so I moved the vehicles out of the driveway. I had no idea what kind of truck it would be or how it would need to be unloaded. Vans says that the total weight of the two boxes is 390 pounds, so I was not sure how we would unload it.
The driver was really great. There was a lift gate on the back of the huge freight truck, and he used a pallet jack to move the boxes to the lift. Once on the ground, I used a piano dolly for one box, and the driver used a wheel cart under the spar box, and we set them in the garage.
I had to move some bikes out of the way, but eventually I was ready to start unpacking all of the airplane stuff!
