If your package weighs more than 150 lbs., it is too heavy for a parcel service and you will need a common freight Transport carrier. LTL (Less than Truckload) carriers will Shipping shipments weighing anywhere from 100 to 10,000 lbs. If your shipment weighs more than 8,000 lbs, it may take up an entire truck which means you will need a FTL (Full Truckload) carrier. We provide both LTL and FTL freight Transport carriers. If you are ready to go, please fill out our Transport quote form to receive a quote for your move.
Your shipment will be Transport via truck along with other customer's shipments so that the costs of Hauling are shared which makes LTL Carriers economical and cost effective.
If your Hauling is large enough to take up the entire truck space, it is a "full truckload" the Carriers will be in the truck all by itself. If your Transport does not quite require the entire space, it is considered a "partial truckload" and the Shipping will be in a truck along with another partial load.
Usually the driver will not wait and will be dispatched to come out again the next day. This will delay your transit time and you will be responsible for a duplicated pick up fee if the carrier charges for the 2nd pick up. Please have your Shipping ready.
Yes, Transport weight needs to be accurate because your Carriers charge is based partly on weight. If your Carriers is inaccurately weighed, it is subject to being re-weighed by the carrier, which could result in an additional charge. Re-weighing may also delay delivery.
You only need to provide package measurements for international shipments as they are based on weight and dimensions. Domestic shipment charges are based on freight class and weight.
