I just purchase the Jet Super Saw from Amazon.com. Wanted to buy it over the
internet, but would you believe: They could not provide me with the $25
truck off loading service. Phoned their 800 order number and they would.
Keep in mind, you can get guarantee offload for $25 from Amazon.com.

I purchased mine last year from Amazon. The Fed X truck that delivered it
came equipped with a lift gate and a pallet jack. The driver took the saw
off the truck on the street and wheeled it up my driveway and into the
garage. Couldn't have been easier. I suggest you talk to your local Fed X
dispatcher to see if they offer this service in your area. I believe Amazon
uses Fed X for these big items.
I think it depends on where the tool was shipped from. I've ordered a table
saw and a bandsaw through Amazon. The table saw was shipped from Amazon's
warehouse and did come Fed-Ex. As Dustmaker says, Fed-Ex came with a lift
truch and the driver wheeled it right into my garage. The Jet bandsaw was
shipped from the Jet warehouse and they used a different shipping line. It
still came on a lift truck and the driver wheeled it into my garage. In
both cases, I received a call the day before telling me that they would be
there the next day. I asked about the lift truch each time.
Call Amazon's customer support and ask them. They're generally very helpful
and should be able to get the shipping info for you.
I purchase the 16 inch delta lathe about a year ago, and it was delivered by
a trucking company. The drive was great, he slide it right into my shop
door. Amazon said that they would probably use the same company.
What annoyed me so bad was that the Amazon online sales did not know
anything about this $25 charge and they said that I would have to make
arrangements with the trucking company.

I purchased a Supersaw about one month ago from my local tool dealer.
They matched Amazon's price without even asking and delivered the saw
into my garage on the day of my choice. No charge for shipping or
unloading. Buying local allowed me to play with the saw and compare
it to others. The Supersaw was accurate when unpacked and its been
good to go since then.
I recently made a mobile stand out of the wood from the pallet and
four casters. The design of the Supersaw allows for lift to be built
within the saw's footprint. In my case I need to rotate the saw on
occasion as my shop is long and somewhat narrow.
