Congratulations on the purchase of your SmartCap! You received a notification that your SmartCap has shipped, now what? Before your cap arrives, please carefully review the following help topic:

  • Due to the SmartCap’s size and weight, all SmartCaps ship via LTL Freight. Residential Liftgate Service is provided standard for all SmartCap shipments purchased through This means you do not require a commercial shipping dock or a forklift to receive the pallet.
  • The SmartCap is shipped in two (2) boxes - Box 1 is all four side panels and hardware. Box 2 is the roof panel, all packaged ononesingle pallet. The boxes are banded together, strapped to the pallet and wrapped in plastic.
  • Freight companiesshouldcall ~24-48 hours prior to delivery to setup an appointment. Someone is required to be present at delivery time to receive, inspect and sign for the shipment.
