Furniture delivery to our house canceled on account of bear

We were supposed to receive some furniture from my grandparents. I came home a few days ago to an answering machine message from the delivery company requesting that I give them a call. When I got in touch with the distribution manager, he told me that his delivery guy chickened out on taking a big rig up our hill without knowing what the top of the road looked like*. The manager reported that the delivery man got out to walk up the road and scout it out, but he saw a mama bear and three cubs on the road, and decided that his truck was the safest place to be at that moment, and that maybe he wouldn't go scout the hill after all. ...Would I be so kind as to discuss other delivery options with them?

*Two thumbs up for that decision. We've had a big-rig stuck on our hill before. It wasn't pretty.
