Blue Streak will deliver your fragile or sensitive shipment according to your specifications. You can be assured that you or your customer will receive the most optimum service. This service is particularly useful for residential delivery of large, heavy household items like furniture, exercise equipment, or outdoor furniture. Options include doorstep, threshold, room of choice, and customized options such as light installation and debris removal.

Please contact us today to learn more about how we can create a customized, white glove delivery solution for you.

 

FUEL SURCHARGE TO REMAIN THE SAME IN SEPTEMBER

Because there was no increase in fuel charges in the past month nationwide, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will remain at 8.5% in September. Our fuel surcharge continues to be among the lowest in the region.

How it’s calculated: If the national average price of regular unleaded fuel* is above $1.79 during the last week of any given month, the surcharge will be in effect on the first day of the following month.

*As reported by the US Department of Energy.
