When the driver arrives at your job site, they will usually confirm details. For instance, is this the right place, where do you want to unload the truck, and so forth. If your order is C.O.D. the driver will ask for a cashier's check or money order before allowing you to unload. If your order requires multiple truckloads, the last driver is usually the one to collect the check. The driver must have the check in hand before releasing any material. The check should be for the specified amount, matching the driver's bill. During unloading, the driver is only responsible for removing their tarps, straps, and chains.
