It can also be many smaller items, like textiles or flooring materials. Calculating a freight quote means taking into account several variables.
- Freight class
- Dimensions and weight
- Lanes and route optimization
- Shipping distance
- Accessorials – additional fees for shipping with special requirements or limited access

Ways to reduced your Freight Quote
Use Freight Terminals
Most freight terminals are in large cities or towns. If shipping from a small city, try finding nearby terminals for potential savings. Take your package or palletized shipment to the carrier’s terminal to save on travel’s first and last leg. Use terminal-to-terminal services for extra savings.
Use custom boxes and consider custom crating your product. Learn how to create your own DIY crate with our handy instructions. Merge the shipment to as few pallets as possible. Freight quote estimates are based on weights and dimensions. Keep the dimensions packed tighter and smaller and you have even more potential for savings.
The Right Stuff
Box or palletize the shipment by adding protective packing materials. Secure your item or items to the pallet with shrinkwrap. It is advised not to let your shipment overhang the pallet, or you may risk damaging corners and edges. If you need help with packaging your item, we can offer a custom solution to your shipping needs. Just give us a call at 800.716.7608.
Shop for rates from the top freight carriers. Depending on how frequently and where you ship, we can offer the highest discount from the best-known names in the business. With FreightCenter, we work with the carriers so you can go about your business.
When entering your shipment details into our freight quote calculator, provide accurate weight information. Total shipping weight must include packaging. Take the time to measure your shipment’s height, width, and depth. Consider using custom boxes or pallets to save even more time on packaging. A considerable price factor aside from the destination of your quote is the weight and dimensions. Because of this, it’s essential always to use accurate information. If you are not shipping from a business or location with a dock, you may require a liftgate which costs an additional fee at the time of pickup and delivery.
When your freight shipment arrives, check immediately for any damage and loss. The report claims right away. FreightCenter acknowledges that adjustments made by the carrier after the point of the pickup could incur more costs to the shipper. Please call [800.716.7608] if you are unsure about a quote or service terms.
