TSI will give you an accurate quote based on weight and distance. There will be no hidden charges or surprises. Your shipping quote will not change, nor will any charges be added, unless the information you provide changes or you request additional services. If you know the weight of your shipment, that’s perfect. If you’re not sure, we can usually estimate the weight of items like furniture and packed boxes based on your description.
How shipping quotes are calculated
Shipping rates vary based on type of service. If you’re looking for to “ballpark” your price, here are some shipping rate ranges you may find helpful:
- Shipping rates on boxed and crated items begin at about $200.
- Small long-distance moves or shipments of unpacked furniture and other household goods begin at about $300.
- Please remember that the greater the weight and distance, the higher the price quote. Whatever the weight and distance, you can count on top-quality handling, transport and customer service.
These shipping rate estimates are for guidance. For example, you may be able to ship a sofa from one state to another for $300. But you won’t be able to ship a sofa all the way across the country for $300. As always, the actual cost depends on the specifics of your move or shipment.
The TSI shipping quote guarantee
TSI will give you an exact shipping quote based on the information you provide. It will be good for at least 30 days. There will be no fuel surcharges or “accessorial” charges added later. The only way your shipping quote can change is if the information you provide changes or you request additional services. And TSI will always work with you to determine the best and cheapest shipping option to suite your needs.
