I have most of my CH750 in a big crate at the TST Dock a few kilometers away from me. They cannot deliver to a residential address and expect me to have a dock or a truck of some sort, they cannot lower it to the ground. (They'll also add charges for residential which I'm happy to pay at this point).

So how do other Canadian customers receive these crates? Do you all have forklift trucks, or know friends with warehouses?

Gather your friends together, the crate even with contents should be able to be lifted out of the delivery truck. It's really not as bad as it looks.
Another solution that has worked for some: Call for a flatbed tow-truck. They can easily load the crate on it at the terminal and the tilt-back truck can usually let it slide down practically at your doorstep.
Thanks for the hints.
I'm gathering people now and rented a truck to bring it home tonight (might even be at midnight). I just hope 4-5 people might be enough to remove it from a dock-height truck.

It's amazing that all this plus a continental engine can turn into an 'ultralight' by Transport Canada definition.
