I received my Flatline Van Co Safari rack on Monday 3/8 via freight tractor trailer. The truck had a lift gate that allowed my wife and I to unload from the truck with a little help from driver. The crate was about 5' x 12 ' and documented as six hundred pounds. The driver slid the crate out the back and my wife and I supported the weight of half the crate. The driver then lowered the other end with the lift gate while my wife and I lowered our end to the ground. It was not bad at all. From that point I used my tractor with pallet forks to move the crate over to my garage so I could begin my work. If someone did not have access to heavy equipment you can remove rack from crate and then it is an easily manageable 200 lbs. Men like toys and I have a tractor so that made the job more fun for me.
