How to compare the cost of shipping aircraft seats from trusted carriers.

What’s the Best Way to Ship Aircraft Seats?

After airplane seats are purchased new or sent in for repairs, they need to be shipped for installation. Believe it or not, at any given time, there are thousands of aircraft seats available for sale on eBay, Craigslist, and other sales listing and eCommerce sites. While shipping aircraft seats might feel like a daunting task, it’s actually an easy and cost-effective process with the right information.

Although aircraft seats are listed all over the Internet, they are too large and heavy to be shipped through regular mail. Because of this, freight shipping is the best solution for shipping airplane seats. FreightCenter has helped many aircraft seat buyers, sellers, owners, and repair facilities save time and money by finding the best shipping solution.

What are the Freight Shipping Options?

The two major types of freight shipping are LTL (less-than-truckload) and FTL (full truckload). With LTL shipping, loads from a number of shippers are consolidated into one truck. Each shipper only pays for the portion of the truck that their cargo occupies, making LTL shipping a budget-friendly shipping solution. Unless you are shipping a truckload full of airplane seats, you will save a considerable amount of money by using LTL shipping.


How Do I Pack Aircraft Seats for LTL Shipping?

Whenever you ship your item via LTL freight, it will typically be unpacked and repacked at least six times before reaching its final destination. Generally, it is moved when it is…

It is important to note that every time freight is moved, there is a potential risk that it can be damaged. Because of this, you may want to consider purchasing additional freight insurance, as well as packing your item very carefully.

As you know, aircraft seats are not an inexpensive purchase. This makes it even more important to protect your investment. With that in mind, crating offers the best protection for your airplane seats. Packing your shipment in well-crafted crates reduces the likelihood of damage from incidental bumps that always occur between pickup and delivery. Furthermore, effective crating also protects cargo from shifting while in transit.

If you would like assistance in building a custom crate, FreightCenter’s shipping experts can point you in the right direction. Call them at 800.716.7608 to learn more.
