Shipping Transit Time

The shipping transit time stated during checkout  is an estimate. It is the time it takes for your package to arrive at the final destination,  once it is picked up by the carrier from our stores.  Please factor in processing time when estimating your actual delivery date.

Shipping Partners

We ship our products with UPS and USPS (United States Postal Service), and for large items which exceed the UPS/USPS standard weight limits, we ship via a freight carrier (see below).  

We do not require a signature for delivery.  Once your package has left our store location with one of our partnered carriers via UPS/USPS, all questions regarding tracking information are redirected to UPS/USPS customer service.  Cresco-Resco is not responsible for your package during transit.  Cresco-Resco is not liable for damages, lost, or stolen.  You will be redirected to our partnered carrier’s customer service.

Cresco-Resco does  not ship any items outside the USA.  We do not assist with coordinating freight forwarding on behalf of the customer.

Order Tracking

All UPS/USPS shipments will have a tracking number.  You will be emailed a tracking number once tracking information is available by the carrier.  If you are using a freight forwarder, in most cases, the carrier will contact you to make shipping arrangements.

Delivery Options

When checking out, you will be asked to select whether your ship-to address is Residential or Commercial.

Residential address is classified as any house, apartment, or other living space, even if you operate a business from such an address.  If your item(s) are shipping via freight carrier, the carrier will call you usually a day before delivery to arrange an appointment.  Some carriers will charge for the appointment service, others may waive the charge.  Commercial address is defined by our freight carriers as a site typically with tractor-trailer access and a loading dock.  Other commercial locations may include but are not limited to churches, prisons, hospitals, malls, senior living homes/nursing homes, farms/ranches, and military bases.  

Lift Gate Service

When shipping via freight carrier, you will be asked at checkout to select Lift Gate Service.  A lift gate is essential for all commercial and residential addresses without a loading dock and tractor-trailer access.  A lift gate safely unloads items over 75 pounds from the truck down to ground level.  Items shipped via freight carrier are typically bulky and heavy.  If you do not select lift gate service, please be aware that the driver will NOT be able to assist in unloading your shipment and that it is solely your responsibility to remove your shipment promptly and safely from the truck.  The cost for lift gate service varies by carrier.

Freight Carrier Receiving Process

Carefully read the following freight shipment receiving process and follow the instructions when your delivery arrives.  We recommend printing out this checklist for use during your delivery.

Verify the number of packages delivered with the packing slip provided by Cresco-Resco, shrink-wrapped on the outside of the box or equipment.

Unpack your order immediately and inspect for visible and/or concealed damage.  It is critical to check your order while the truck driver is still present.  The driver may try to rush you into signing forms so the driver can leave; do not let anyone rush you.  Check the products as they are being delivered and note any potential damage on the delivery receipt/bill of lading.  Remember: Once the driver leaves, you become responsible for reporting any damages to the freight company.  Cresco-Resco cannot be held liable for those damages.

Do not sign delivery forms until you have thoroughly checked all your items.  The driver is responsible for waiting until the shipment has been thoroughly inspected and signed for.

Refuse delivery of any items with damage

Should any damage be discovered, keep the shipping carton and any inner packaging intact.  Verbally request inspection immediately from the driver and make a written request to the carrier.  Hidden or concealed damage must be reported, and an inspection must be requested within 3 business days.

If any damage is discovered (visible or concealed), contact a representative at 1-800-443-1400 to report the damage.  Please have your order number, shipping information, and any available tracking number ready so we can quickly and accurately assist in the process.  You are welcome to email us at customerservice@restaurantequipment.com.
