On the agreed upon delivery day, R & L Carriers will be prepared to assist you in emptying your YOUCRATE. They will not move the stove or install the stove for you; this is NOT part of their standard service. They will take the crate with them at the time of departure. If you need a white-glove service, R & L Carriers can assist you with those arrangements, although the can be quite costly.

They will come back to collect the crate YOUCRATES must be returned to R & L Carrier’s within 7 days of delivery. Failure to do so can result in rental fees of $80/week.
