Do I need to help the driver lift the item?
We supply one driver in one full-sized truck for each pickup. Our drivers will come prepared with a supply of moving blankets and safety constraints to prevent your items from moving around during the ride. Heavy and large items that cannot be handled by a single TOD XL agent will require your assistance at both pickup and drop-off. If you are unable to assist with heavy or large items, you will need to request a second driver in a second truck for your item(s). This can be done easily by contacting Trucks on Demand through the app or via the Contact Us page of our website.
Are my items insured?
Although our drivers are deliberately careful with the items that they haul/deliver, accidents can happen. Trucks On Demand maintains insurance up to $20,000 for any items our drivers haul/deliver in an effort to give you peace of mind. This means that your items are insured for up to $20,000 to cover repair or replacement costs of any items lost or damaged in transit.
Our TOD XL truck rates are determined by the type of service that you choose. Payments are conveniently handled by entering your credit or debit card information in the TOD XL app. Billing begins when the driver arrives at the first pickup location and ends when all services are completed at the final drop-off location.
Am I expected to tip the driver?
