    I would suggest displaying an error that advices the user what they would do -

    For example:

    If you would like to implement that, please do the following:

    1. Add a form calculation widget to your form - I renamned it as 'compare dates':

    2. Add the calculation to subtract the difference between the delivery date and the pickup date:

    3. Add the message you want displayed when the user selects a Pickup date ealier than the delivery date:

    4. Next - add conditional logic rules to show/hide the message as shown below:

    The rule states that if "Compare Dates" contains a negative symbol, then show the error message text field.

    5. Lastly - make the calculation field hidden so that it does not show on the form:

    Here is the demo form so that you can see how it works: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41212500749951

    Please let us know if this helps.
