Buying a New Barbecue

Getting Your Barbecue Home: What to Know 

Before you can answer these pressing questions you must first pick up your precious barbecue from the hospital…we mean store. 

When choosing to pick up your barbecue, you are faced with two options: you can pick it up in a box, or you can choose to pick it up assembled.

Our assembly charge is $20. As part of the assembly our team does an 18-point review of the unit to insure that it is properly assembled.

We also test-fire the unit to insure that the ignition system is working properly and check to see if there are any leaks in the gas connections.

There are considerable cardboard and wrapping materials with most full-size barbecues that we will recycle or dispose of on your behalf. 

If there is any freight damage or missing pieces in the first box we open on your behalf – we will open subsequent boxes until we find one in perfect working condition.

Tips & Tricks for a Stress-Free Barbecue Pickup

Having the wrong plan when picking up your new barbecue can turn a time of great joy into a time of a great frustration! 

We care about you and want you to have more joy in your life and less stress. Below are some helpful tips to consider before making the great trip to pick up your new barbecue.


  • Ensure there is enough empty space in the vehicle for the barbecue. Measure your vehicle to make sure the barbecue will fit. You don’t want to drive all the way to the store only to find out it doesn’t.
  • Have a look in the trunk before coming to pick up your barbecue. You may find items you completely forgot about back there such as hockey equipment, clothes, lawn chairs, etc.
  • If you are picking up the barbecue in a box, ask the salesperson for the dimensions beforehand.
  • Inform the salesperson on what vehicle you plan on bringing to pick up the barbecue in.
  • Ask the salesperson if any pieces of the barbecue will need to be taken off in order for it to fit in your vehicle if you are getting it assemble. You don’t want to spend that $20 out of your hard earned money, only to find half the barbecue needs to be taken apart to try to fit it into your vehicle.
  • If pieces need to be taken off, kindly ask the warehouse staff how to put them back on correctly. This will help you to avoid headaches later on. Our staff is amazing and will help you out with any questions you may have to ensure that you can enjoy barbecue goodness as soon as you arrive home.

  • If you are driving a van to pick up an assembled barbecue, 95% of the time the side shelves will need to come off and the barbecue will need to be laid down.
  • If you are picking up an assemble barbecues bring straps.
  • Have at least one ratchet strap ready if you are picking up the barbecue in a pickup truck.
  • If you don’t have the right size vehicle for the job, consider using a rental truck or borrowing an adequate vehicle from a family member or friend.
  • For pickups try to bring a truck, especially if you are picking up a larger barbecue ( Weber Genesis).
  • Barbecue Pickup… it’s in the name… try to bring a pickup.
  • We can’t stress this enough… try to bring a pickup truck.
