Did you know that Forklift staff can't load your purchases off the dock or into your car?  (Small staff + lifting all day = stress injuries + bad backs).  If you or your vehicle can't manage your items,  you have two weeks to  round up strong friends, hire laborers, and/or rent a truck (trust me, that fridge ain't gonna fit in your Mini Cooper).  And don't lose your receipt!  You must present it to claim your item.

We stock Alco appliances!

Scrap lumber is pretty handy!

This picture is of a raised bed that we built out of free scrap wood from Community Forklift one afternoon.  Thanks so much for the wood; it was a really fun and productive project!
