SAF West Adds Pick-up and Delivery Service in Sacramento and the Bay Area

In April of 2019, SAF West began offering a shuttle service using a 24-foot flatbed truck for pick-up and delivery. What was initially planned as a weekly service has become bi-weekly due to its success, according to the company, with more frequent trips when demand warrants.

Trips originate from SAF’s Redding, Calif., location, which is 150 miles north of Sacramento. SAF has delivered to customers as far south as San Jose, Morgan Hill and Stockton. The company’s shuttle can deliver up to10,000 pounds of aluminum sheet, extrusion and fabricated material. Toll finishing customers who need to have their material anodized at SAF can also request pick-ups.

SAF has always covered the freight on sheet and extrusion orders over 100 pounds, and continues to do so, even while using its own truck. SAF will quote toll finishing customers a freight based on distance from Redding and the size of the load.
