Freight Shipping Made Simple
Freight usually refers to items that are moved in trains, planes, ships, trucks, and more, and have specific rules and regulations. However, we can help you navigate the ins and outs of freight shipping with hassle-free service! Wondering if you need freight shipping? Here are some examples of items that are usually sent by freight:
- Heavy industrial equipment
- Large furniture pieces
- Cars & other vehicles
- Large office equipment pieces
- Items on palettes
- Large art pieces like statues
Shipping smaller packages can be pretty straightforward, but how can you ship something that is too big for normal carriers? If you’re trying to ship something large and heavy, it can be a challenge if you don’t understand the proper dynamics of cargo and freight options.
When to Use Freight Shipping
Are you unsure if you need larger parcel shipping or freight shipping? We can help you find out. Depending on your package’s size, weight, and type, you may need to use a freight option. While it may seem excessive, many larger objects need to be shipped with freight because most parcel shipments are limited to 150 pounds.
To decide if your item needs freight shipping, you can either bring it to us or give us a call and we can help you figure it out. You’ll need to know your item’s weight, height, width, and some other features to determine your best course of action.
