A typical delivery service may offer curbside delivery, in which an item is unloaded on or next to the curb at the end of your driveway. You are responsible for moving the item into your home. This service does not include the removal of packing materials or any item assembly.

White glove delivery services offer a better customer experience. A typical white glove service provider will carry the item into your home. This includes carrying the item up stairs or through tight hallways to get to its final destination. Once the item is inside, the delivery professional will assemble it and remove any packing materials. For appliances, white glove delivery often involves installation as well as the removal of old items.
