Threshold Delivery FAQs

Threshold delivery is a type of final mile delivery where packages are placed in the first dry area of a home or business, such as the lobby of a commercial building, a garage, or foyer of a residence.

Through our last-mile tracking technology platform, Synoptic, our team of delivery experts digitally obtains signatures, sending proof of delivery details directly to your personalized Synoptic dashboard for easy one-step tracking.

First, these services are both forms of final mile—or last mile—delivery. So, what is threshold delivery? This is final mile delivery where our expert team will place packages in the first available dry area to protect the goods in efficient ways. This includes threshold home delivery (which can include delivering packages to the residents’ foyers) as well as commercial applications, which could include delivery to a business lobby or garage. 


White glove delivery, meanwhile, is something different. It involves the final mile delivery of oversized goods, ranging from furniture to appliances and mattresses to electronics, exercise equipment, and more. This service can also include the assembly and installation of these oversized goods along with deluxing the delivered goods, furniture repair, removal of goods, and reverse logistics.

In general, factors that go into the cost of threshold home delivery services include the weight of the packages with more weight equaling higher costs. Dimensions also matter with larger sizes of packages taking up more room in the truck. Distance is another factor because more mileage equals the need for more fuel. As another factor, how quickly the package is set to be delivered can make a difference with faster delivery increasing the price. 

Because each shipment can have a different mix of these factors, there’s no one single answer to this question. NXTPoint has big negotiating power, and we get our customers the best prices available. So, to get answers about your specific threshold home delivery costs, please provide us with the details.
