every delivery. The driver will call you while en route and give a more precise time of arrival. Please DO NOT GO TO THE DELIVERY LOCATION UNTIL YOU HEAR FROM
THE DRIVER. When the truck arrives, have your crew ready to help unload it as quickly as possible. This helps speed up your sale and allows the
driver to keep his other delivery appointments. (THE TRUCK DRIVER IS NOT REQUIRED TO HELP UNLOAD)
