The Best Way to Make Shipping Antiques Easy and Affordable

Whether you’re buying or selling, FreightCenter makes shipping it easy and affordable to Ship Antiques. Follow the suggestions on this page, and you’ll see how.

The Special, Personal Value of Antiques

Some people collect antiques for sentimental reasons. Some specialize in restoring and selling them. For others, antiques are part of an inheritance and represent a special connection with family members from whom they are descended. We understand the commitment people make to locating and acquiring a particular item and any sentimental attachments. Our freight agents will assist with best practice recommendations for shipping antiques, from carrier selection to crating services. Our agents will guide you through the freight booking process.

If you’re shipping antiques that are too large or heavy to ship as a parcel, LTL (less-than-truckload) freight will likely meet your needs. But if you send a houseful of antiques, you may need a full truckload. Whichever type of shipping you need, FreightCenter can handle it for you.

FreightCenter’s shipping experts will help you find the best mode of transportation and carrier. If the antiques are fragile and traveling a great distance, consider using air freight to reduce road vibration. For fragile goods traveling a shorter distance, a van with air-ride suspensions is a good choice.

How Do You Prepare Antiques for LTL Freight Shipping?

You save money with LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping because your shipment shares the truck with loads from other shippers. Your cargo must be packaged so it will not be damaged in transit and will not present a danger to other shipments on the truck.

Antiques should receive maximum protection. LTL shipping means the cargo will be moved on and off trucks at least six times by the time it reaches its destination. If you are not well versed in adequately crating your antiques, consider hiring a professional packaging firm.
