Delivery Information

Millican Nurseries ships all over the northeast including, but not limited to, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York.

During the spring months, two weeks' notice is preferred for deliveries, but orders with less notice can often be accommodated. Freight can only be quoted based upon delivery location, truck requirements and quantity of material ordered. Deliveries are 'tailgate' only. Appropriate equipment for unloading is required - We DO NOT have unloading machinery on any of our trucks. If our driver is detained beyond a reasonable time period (2 hrs. for a rack truck, 3 hrs. for a tractor-trailer) an additional $150.00 per hour will be added.

We have a number of different trucks available for delivery:

  • 48' tractor trailers
  • 48' drop-deck trailers (lowboys) for delivery of large trees - These trailers have a poor turning radius, so ample room for turning and backing is needed.
  • 48' box trailer – used for large orders consisting of primarily containers.
  • 32' tractor trailer (referred to around here as "stubby")
  • 24' rack truck
  • 22' Swap-body rack trucks – these trucks have the ability to place the body directly on the ground. They are very useful at sites where machine unloading is limited, however, adequate overhead clearance is needed to lower and raise the body. We also need approximately 56' of length to accommodate the truck and the lowered body.
  • Stellar Lift
  • 16' box truck - used for short-notice deliveries of smaller plants

Having such a diverse line-up of trucks allows us to put your order on the truck that best fits your order size, as well as dealing with job site restrictions you may face. If your order is not large enough to fill out a whole truck, we always do our best to combine orders going to the same region to help everyone save a few bucks on freight. Our friendly drivers look forward to seeing you soon!
