Classic Design Services will receive and consolidate your freight for you. Our receiving docks can accommodate any size truck or container, and there is a street-level dock for cars and light trucks. We accept freight whether it is prepaid, third-party billing, or even freight collect. We thoroughly inspect each item when received and note any damage or quantity discrepancies clearly on the bill of lading. Original packing and crating are saved for reuse when practical. Activity on the docks and in the warehouse is recorded wth CCTV to ensure an accurate record of all inventory entering and leaving the premises.
After inspection, each item is entered into our inventory management system, and barcodes are applied to each piece for tracking purposes. Items are blanket wrapped, slipcovered, packed, or crated for protection as necessary. Inventory is then moved into the appropriate storage area where it is stored on racks, vaulted, placed in a private room or climate-controlled storage. After the warehouse crew stows the inventory, the location is updated in the inventory system. All clients are notified when goods are received, and copies of our receiving reports and all shipping documentation are provided. Receiving fees can be billed, or held until the inventory is removed from the warehouse, then added to the delivery order.
Our receiving hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Our warehouse is centrally located in the Buckhead/Midtown area of Atlanta, with convenient access to Interstate 85.
