curb side pick up question
i know I can get it delivered but it is such a waste knowing that it would fit with one cut.

I could be wrong but perhaps they will do this for you themselves in the store? Last I spoke to them was when the stores were open though and someone in line was told they will do 1 cut for customers..not sure if this has changed come curbside

I called and even on their recorded message they said something about not offering wood cutting services currently. If I spoke to someone they might make an exception as it is just to get it into the car. Can't get through though

I’ve done this in the parking lot pre-covid19 more than once.

Should be ok. Been to 2 (or 3) different HD for curb-side pickups, including some lumbers. Since the parking lots are big, you'll just wait at a spot while the folks register and bring out your order. The lineup is only to drive into the parking lot. They *do not* put the items in your car, they only bring them out on the trolley and you have to load up yourself. Shouldn't be a problem to do the cut then. Perhaps go park further away if you're worry.

You have a battery powered one? Most places wouldn't have a place to plug one in.
It seems none of the big hardware stores are offering cutting services.
Where in Toronto are you? I'm in Scarborough and the Lowes, Rona, and Home Depot I've visited had lots of space. Note that when you initially call for pickup you're supposed to park at designated spots. However, there is nothing stopping you from moving your car afterwards. However, one issue is that if it's wood or MDF products or something similar they may ask you move your vehicle to the entrance of the lumber section, as it's easier for them to just wheel it out there instead of going through the main entrance at the other end of the store. This still shouldn't be a big problem though as I suppose you could just park further away, and then walk over to the lumber entrance. Hang out there and when they come out, just take the trolley from them and wheel it out to that parking spot. All you need is your receipt's order number and picture ID.clax66 wrote: ↑ I just know when I go to grocery store the line up is corralled into a very thin line and no room for anything. I have not been to any of the big boxes for lumber pick up so I don't know the process. If it was normal times then no problem. Wheel it out to middle of parking lot away from everyone and get it done. In the new world i am not sure how it works. Do they/you load it directly into your car or are you able to wheel it away in the cart?

Not sure if you can get the stockperson to help currently due to physical distancing. In the few HD pickup trips I did so far, they always dropped off the cart, asked for ID and left. They wouldn't even help load the stuffs in your car. If OP thinks may need help to cut, may want to bring another family member along. Tho rough-cutting a 4x8 sheet shouldn't be difficult..jm1 wrote: ↑ Even with my portable Ryobi circular saw, it'll only take 10 seconds to cut it into two (4x4) if you just want a rough cut. The stockperson will probably start wheeling it to your car in a cart. Just have him help you get the sheet out of the cart and lean it something (probably the cart itself) to make the cut. It'll be done fast and he can just wheel the cart back.
