The last mile level of service seems to be very, very localized in its quality. I received a call two days before FedEx Freight delivered and another call an hour before they arrived just as agreed. I would think being on the I-5 corridor that, like me, your stuff would leave Washington state and come straight on down to you. My driver was able to back his tractor trailer up into my little suburban driveway (whilst blocking the rest of my cul-de-sac) , put the stuff on the tailgate, lower it a bit and backed it right into my garage. This guy was not lazy or afraid to please a customer, that's for sure.
BTW, If I missed your intro; Welcome Aboard.
