Furniture Delivery – Preparing Your Fragile Items for Shipment

Posted by Tara on

Moving is a task that often gives one nightmares about all of the things that could go wrong, especially if there are treasured and fragile items involved. When it comes to shipping fragile items, relying on just any mover or shipper will not do. Although the goal is to get them moved from one location to another, you should never sacrifice any aspect of safety to ensure that your possessions make it to their destination. No matter how you look at the situation, shipping fragile items and treasured possessions can be challenging. Although there are furniture delivery services you can hire, you do need to be selective about which company you hire.

How to Hire the Best Freight Shipping Service for Your Needs

Posted by Tara on

Some larger items must be prepared and protected in a certain way while others can be shipped as-is. Navigating the waters of large-item shipping does not have to be complicated or confusing. The whole process is much simpler when you know what type of services you need and what is involved in each step.

Weight and Cost Minimums

Before committing to a freight shipping service, be sure you understand the company’s minimum weight and cost requirements. Some companies charge the same for full loads and partial loads, so you end up paying for empty space on the truck if you do not have much to ship. However, at TSI, we charge by weight and distance with a low, 100-pound minimum, regardless of whether your items fill the whole truck or not. Read More
