dryer duct extension/transiition

perhaps this post should be in be discussing the retailer (costco), but anyway i ordered a dryer from costco which offered white glove delivery (ie they install it for you)

so the guy said he cant install it because im using a dryer duct extension (dont most people use them?) ...said something about a liability issue (i mean wouldnt all installations?) ,...just curious if this is a valid excuse or should i call costco and insist they have them install it?

How long is the extension from the dryer to the duct?

Not sure about Canada, never had them install ours, but I know in the USA they won't connect the transition duct - from dryer to wall - if its the foil-type (accordion). They will install it if its a rigid duct metal so either a straight or 90deg angle type that is relatively short.
