Default Is lift gate necessary?

I just purchased a G-2 Chubby. is the "lift-gate" service necessary? Is the crate big enough to slide off the truck?

2 guys can lift it out. no way you can yourself. sometimes the lift gate trucks work better because they are not 53' trailers trying to drive down side streets and dead ends

Agreed, the chubby isnt that bad, but the crate its bolted to adds considerably to the weight.
