Fulfillment, Shipping, and Returns
Order Processing Period
Unless otherwise notified, all orders are entered into our system within 2 business days of receipt. Monday - Friday 8am - 5pm EST. An Advantage Lifts representative will reach out within 2 business days of an order to coordinate the pick-up, shipment, or installation date of the order.
Customer Pick Up
Customers may pick up their order from the following distribution centers pending availability:
*Elk River, MN
*Greenville, SC (Coming This Spring)
Within two business days, an Advantage Lifts representative will contact you about the availability of your order based on your desired distribution center. At that time, we will provide you with the distribution center address and hours. Our distribution centers require a 24-hour notice prior to pick up. Weekend pick ups are not available.
The distribution center will load your order onto your appropriately sized car trailer with a forklift. You will be responsible for securing the load, so bring straps with you to pick up.
Once you have been contacted by an Advantage Lifts representative after the order processing period, we typically have the lift shipped out in 2-3 business days, assuming the lift is not back ordered. Typical transit period is 3-4 days. Anticipate 1.5 to 2 weeks turnaround time from when the order is placed to when the lift arrives at the destination terminal.
Once the lift arrives at the truck terminal you typically have 3-4 business days to pick up the lift. If you let the lift sit too long at the destination terminal storage fees may apply, and those would be your responsibility to pay, not Advantage Lifts.
Free shipping is offered on all Challenger products. Advantage Lifts may occasionally offer free shipping on other select products. Free shipping is to a commercial address that has a dock and means (forklift) of unloading the lift; free shipping is also offered for lifts shipped to a local truck hub where you would pick up your lift with an appropriate size and type of trailer. The truck hub would load the lift onto your trailer for you, but you are responsible for strapping down the load.
We use the lowest cost, best quality trucking company that services the shipping location to deliver your order.
If a tracking # is provided by the shipping carrier, we will provide you with the tracking information. When the status of the order says, “At Destination Terminal”, or similar verbiage, your order is available for pickup. If you want to verify that your order is at the hub before picking up use your tracking information and call the terminal or carrier directly.
The rate charged for the shipping of your order is based on the number of products, weight of your products, and your location. You can call us before placing an order and we can send you a shipping quote or you can place your order online and select the pre-determined shipping rate, which is an average of shipping cost for the product(s). Any shipping quote provided by Advantage Lifts is valid for 5 days.
If you choose to have your lift installed, an Advantage Lifts representative will call within 3 business days of the order to provide you with an installation quote. We have a network of internal and external installers that we use. Installations are typically scheduled 2-3 weeks out from the day the installation quote was accepted. Installation quotes include delivery of the lift to your location and the hydraulic oil. There may be shipping charges in addition to get your order to the installer. Any electric work should be done by a certified electrician; installers will not do any electrical work.
Items on backorder are typically not noted on the website. Please call to ask about availability of items if you need your order fulfilled immediately. If an item goes on back order, we will reserve one of the incoming units for you, and once the item(s) are in stock we will reach out to coordinate the pick-up, shipment, or installation date of the order. When all items are available, we will ship the order.
