Do I have to be home to receive my bag?

No, you do not need to be home to receive your Greely’s Gardening Bag. You just need to simply mark an “X” on your driveway with chalk or masking/painter’s tape where you want your Greely’s Gardening Bag(s) to be placed.

Keep in mind when marking your “X” on your driveway for a Gardening Bag delivery we need a space 4ft X 4ft. Also, our boom truck will remain on the main road and use the crane to place your Gardening Bag(s) up to 15 feet away from the truck for stone and sand and up to 20 feet away for soil and mulch. If the “X” is not accessible by the boom truck, the driver will place the bag(s) as close as possible to the “X” yet still allow for vehicles to pass by. Be sure to look up and make sure there are no overhead wires or low lying trees where you marked your “X” on your driveway.

Can you bring the bag into my backyard?

Unfortunately, we are not able to bring the bag into your backyard since we use a knuckle boom crane that is mounted on our truck. Typically bags are placed conveniently on your driveway.

How will the bag be delivered?

There are two ways we deliver the cubic yard bags.  With our tandem axle boom truck with an articulated knuckle boom crane which lifts the bag off the flat deck of the truck, and places it on to your driveway. The crane can reach up to 15 feet (for stone and sand) and up to 20 feet (for soil and mulch) away from the truck, so the truck will not have to drive on to your driveway.  The other option is delivery by our flat deck with a Moffett forklift.  The Moffett requires 9 feet width of clearance and a stable surface to drive on.
