Estate Shipping

Major US freight companies and freight services for commercial and residential estate freight. Door to door freight rates.

What is Estate Shipping?

Estate shipping is hauling freight to and from commercial or residential estates. Estate shipping can also include arranging shipments for estate auctions or sales. Estate shipping handles the hauling of delicate estate cargo that requires careful handling and packaging. Many of these shipments contain family heirlooms, antiques, and furniture. Since these shipments are known to be fragile and delicate, the packages must be arranged into crates or stacks and then palletized with break-away or banding adhesives.

Estate shipping is a process that requires care, expertise, and attention to detail. Partner with a company like FreightCenter, whose carriers will ensure that your treasure and keepsakes arrive in as-shipped condition, when and where it is expected.

How to Ship an Estate 

Obtain a Quote: Avoid using price as the sole determining factor when selecting a provider. While budget-friendly options should be considered, ensure you go with a carrier with experience and credibility in shipping delicate items such as estate packages. Our expert FreightCenter agents will help you find the best carrier for your estate packages with the experience and skill to make shipping your estate a breeze! 

Appraisal: When shipping those high-value items, have an appraiser look at your packages well before the move. Getting an accurate assessment of the worth of your shipment is critical to obtaining the right amount of insurance coverage. 

Inspection: Inspect all the items you plan to ship and check for any damages, defects, or extra fragile items requiring more care. Taking note of existing damage and delicate pieces and communicating with your freight agents about the specific contents of your shipment will help prevent any breakages or damages. 

Full Inventory: It is advised to seek the help of packaging professionals to create a full inventory of what you are shipping. This will make communication with your freight agent and carriers much more efficient, clear, and streamlined. 

Detailed Instructions: If there will be multiple shipments, communicate clear instructions to your freight agent and carrier. Make sure to be clear about what shipments go where. 

Ask Questions: Speak up and ask your agent if you have any questions regarding your shipment, including questions about handling and crating. Our expert team of freight agents is well-versed in the industry and will be able to answer any questions you may have about the shipment. 

Cargo Insurance: Speak to your Freight agent about cargo insurance; they can help you find the right coverage for your shipment. Different types of cargo require different insurance. Insurance is critical in case of damages or defects during transit. While our carriers are skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced, accidents still have the potential to occur, and it is far better to be prepared than sorry. 

Inspections: Once you receive your shipment, make sure to see if all your packages have arrived and that all the items are in as-shipped condition. Contact your freight agent about filing a claim if any packages have been lost or damaged. They will be able to direct you to our claims department for assistance. Document any damages or defects with photos to present as evidence for your claims.
