How to Make Shipping Chandeliers Easy and Affordable
Whether you’re buying or selling chandeliers, FreightCenter makes shipping chandeliers easy and affordable for you. Follow the suggestions on this page and you’ll see how.
Chandelier shipping often includes these types:
Pendant bowl chandeliers
A small chandelier that meets size and weight requirements can be shipped as a parcel.
Freight shipping large, costly chandeliers is done via LTL (less-than-truckload) hauls. Whichever type of shipping you need, FreightCenter can handle it for you.
How Do You Prepare Chandeliers for Ltl Shipping?
You save money with LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping because your shipment shares the truck with loads from other shippers. It’s important that your cargo be packaged so it will not be damaged in transit and will not present a danger to other shipments on the truck.
With chandeliers, you can’t afford to shortcut the packaging. Start by removing all the bulbs, wrapping each bulb individually and placing them in a box.
Protect the arms of the chandelier with paper products or bubble wrap.
You can secure the chandelier inside a double-walled box or crate, making sure to insulate the chandelier from the sides, bottom, and top of the container with a bubble or foam packaging product.
If you use a box, shrink-wrap it and band it to the center of a pallet. A well-made crate will be attached to a pallet.
For parcel shipping, use a double-sided box and follow all the instructions above, but you will not need a pallet.
With parcel shipping, because boxes on parcel trucks can shift easily, be extra careful with how you protect the chandelier inside the box.
What Is the Nmfc (Freight Class) for Shipping Chandeliers?
The freight class for shipping a glass chandelier is 200. This number will be useful when you fill out our online quote form. If you are sending items in addition to the chandelier, you can use our Freight Class Lookup table.
How much does it Cost to Ship a Chandelier?
The cost of shipping a chandelier through less-than-truckload (LTL) freight will depend on various factors.
These factors include dimensions, weight, distance, freight class, additional services, and carrier rates.
Due to the numerous variables involved, providing an exact cost without specific details is challenging.
It’s recommended to contact LTL freight carriers or freight brokers who can gather the necessary information and provide accurate quotes based on your specific shipment requirements.

Q. Are there any specific packaging requirements for shipping chandeliers via freight?
A. While there are no universal packaging requirements, it’s crucial to use high-quality, durable packaging materials to protect chandeliers during transit. Custom wooden crates or specialized packaging for each component may be necessary for added protection.
Q. How do I ship an extra large chandelier?
A. To ship a large chandelier securely, place it in a double-walled box or crate, ensuring proper insulation from all sides using bubble or foam packaging. If using a box, shrink-wrap and band it to the center of a pallet. For optimal protection, attach the well-made crate to a pallet. Follow these steps for safe chandelier shipping.
