Nash Finch in Norfolk Virginia lumper fee was 795.00. Being new I was shocked called night dispatch to see if it was for real. I sat there 8 hours in staging and 6 hours in the door. I’d gave them whatever just to leave there.

That was the same one I delivered too, starting off this topic.

Just outside of Boston I paid $360 for four pallets. What really made me mad about that was I was supposed to deliver the previous morning. I was stuck behind an accident so I called the receiver and told them I'd be late. He said they would be leaving by 11 a.m. this was on a Saturday. I pulled on to the cul-de-sac they were located on at 10:45 and I saw two car loads of guys leaving and they were laughing when they saw me. Guess what it was them and I had to wait another day.

When I delivered to Dollar General this week, the guy in the shipping office asked me this: “Will you be using a lumper?” So what choice did I have? Unload it myself? Why would he even ask me that?

Should have reread that she said they provide a pallet jack.

It's their job to ask. They're not mind readers. Lots of O/O & L/O prefer to do it themselves. Prime will pay us if we unload. That said, my butt ain't gonna unload, count, sort & restack a 53' trailer load of anything!!

I've never had to pee a lumber in flatbed, but I have had to purchase my own dunnage (4x4x8 boards used as support/spacing). For that, I typically pay $70- $100 out of pocket, but the company reimburses me.

Peeing on the lumper service will probably get you arrested, lol.

Sorry for being late to the party.

I’ve unloaded less than five times so far, and it was fewer than 15 items. If I get paid for it, I’ll gladly do it. I remember doing it once for three huge filing cabinets at a receiver. Got there at 2300 for a live unload, but the only one around was a security guy until 0700 the next morning. “You can unload it, or wait until they get here tomorrow morning “....I’d rather keep moving, and the extra $150 for 15 minutes of exercise was worth it. I’d like to get more loads like that.
