How do I know if shipping auto part are better suited for LTL, FTL, partial truckload or parcel shipping?

If you are shipping light items that can fit in boxes, parcel shipping is the best option. This includes items that weigh less than 100 pounds. If your parts weigh more than 100 pounds, and you are shipping less than 4 pallets you should use LTL (less than truckload). A partial truckload is a great option when you are shipping 5-12 pallets and anything over 12 pallets truckload shipping is likely your best option.

How can you package auto parts to be shipped freight?

The way you package an auto part for LTL shipping will depend on the shape of the auto part. Some auto parts are more fragile and need to be padded before they are put in a truck. In some cases, it might be necessary to take the auto part apart first if it is possible. To be safe, it is a good idea to talk to someone at FreightCenter so we can guide you about the best way to package the part.

How To Prepare Your Engine or Automotive Parts For Shipping

When shipping automobile parts, it is necessary to take several precautions while preparing your auto part for shipping:

  • Drain any liquids including water – before shipping to avoid delay, damage, and additional charges.
  • Package Securely – This means packaging your auto part properly by crating it and securing it to a standard pallet. If scratches and dents are a concern, FreightCenter recommends to properly crate the auto part. Crating prevents your items from being crushed.
  • Measure Accurately – Give the most accurate weight possible when quoting automotive shipping rates (total shipping weight must include packaging).
