If you are shipping your entire home (house or large apartment), including all your furniture and personal possessions, you should definitely compare LTL freight shipping rates with a moving company. Depending on market conditions, you might find that one mode of transport is significantly less expensive than the other.
When you ship furniture as LTL freight, your furniture will share the truck with cargo of all sorts from other shippers.You will want to be sure to package your furniture so it is protected from any potentially damaging impact that could occur in transit. You will also want to make sure that your cargo won't damage any other freight on the truck.
