That's what they did for my delivery,
I must say that one must handle the driver in certain way ,
1st don't let him stick the paperwork in your face right off for a signature , tell him you must 1st inspect for damage to the screen before you sign anything (Be Nice, but firm ) ,
have your camera ready as well ,
noted any holes ,bumps, bruising to the box.
take the top box off,
the display sits in a styro-foam/cardboard cradle that is the box bottom ,
remove the plastic cover & then inspect the glass panel with a flashlight . all this take just minutes .
I all ways write on the delivery bill "possible unknown shipping damage" on every display delivery bill I've ever got . The only time I did not was when I got a 60" Sharp from DELL as the driver insisted that they set-up & plug in the display before they left ,to make sure it worked alright (That is a TRUE "White Glove Delivery ") most "White Glove" doesn't go that far & if they don't do that how I describe then your wasting your money .
The Dell "White Glove " was free .
that's how I handle Display deliveries .
I must add I used to do this for a livelihood in my past , that's why I know how to handle the drivers , being nice but firm goes a long way with these guys ,BUT do not sign anything till everything is done ...
& yes I do tip them cash when they are about to leave .
I always say right at 1st ===> "Guys I need to inspect the display before I sign anything & if that's OK with you ,I will take care of you when we are through "
basically that's driver Code that a tip is coming ,just let me inspect ...
