We bought kitchen cabinets and new dishwasher and other stuff from Home 
Despot a few months ago.  They charged us a drayage fee of about $25.  A 
few days ago, I wanted lumber to build raised beds and called our 
neighborhood lumber company, ordered 2X10s and 2X6 Douglas fir. Yes ma'am, 
they could deliver that afternoon, and Yes ma'am, we could pay for it on 
delivery. They did not charge a drayage fee.  I think the total charge is 
about identical to what it would have been from Home Despot, but I felt 
particularly good about dealing with the company we've done business with 
for 30 years.  They know what they know off the top of their heads, they 
don't have to go look up dimensions in stock either.
