How to Get the Best Ebay Freight Shipping Rates

If your business sells on eBay, you might be under the impression that you only have a few options for shipping large items to your buyers. If you are a buyer on eBay, it’s essential to compare the various freight carriers so you can choose the right page to ensure the safe and timely delivery of your newly purchased item.

While eBay lists only two eBay freight shipping partners, you have the option of choosing any carrier you want, and the reason they picked only the two options for you is that it is in their best interest.

For the past 20 years, FreightCenter has been one of the largest freight transportation providers for both eBay sellers and buyers. The reason why is simple. We make shipping easy.

FreightCenter partners with hundreds of leading LTL freight and truckload freight shipping partners around the U.S., including regional carriers and national carriers. These carriers compete head-to-head for your business on FreightCenter’s free online freight quote tool, enabling eBay shippers to compare and calculate freight shipping costs and approximate in-transit times.

The best part of the freight rate calculator is that it is free to use, and there is no obligation to ship.

Sellers with the Best Shipping Rates Sell the Most Items

When you post an item on eBay for sale that requires freight shipping, include our freight rate calculator. An accurate quote will require the origin and delivery zip/postal code, the dimensions and weight of the freight, and the freight class.

eBay freight shipping options may look different now, but FreightCenter is still here to help you close deals and save your customers money on shipping freight.

Shipping your eBay sales via common parcel carriers like UPS, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), or FedEx can be very complicated and confusing.

When your item is larger or heavier than any of these carriers will allow, the parcel carrier can surprise you with hidden fees and refuse to ship your item.

Most of the time, eBay freight shipments are LTL or Less Than Load shipments. An LTL shipment means they are too large or heavy to be sent with a parcel carrier but too small to put on a dedicated truck.

Freight Vs. Parcel for eBay Sellers and Buyers

You’ll find that you’ll pay more (in some cases, a lot more) to ship items freight than slightly smaller or lighter items that aren’t classified as freight.

This is because it often has fewer touches and is transported more directly to its destination.

eBay Freight Shipments Require Adequate Packing

If you are an eBay seller, calculate the cost of safety packing and preparing the item for freight into your shipping cost to the buyers.

In short, your packaging will need to be packed well and protected against a freight truck’s road vibration.

Most damage happens to eBay seller shipments because they failed to safely prepare their load to be transported on a freight truck.

Unlike parcels moving through a warehouse on conveyor belts, freight shipments are often carried by forklift and may switch trucks dozens of times en route to a destination.

Freight Requires the Receiver to be there to Sign for the Shipment

Because shipping freight represents such a different experience from standard small parcel shipping, it’s essential to identify which items you are selling on eBay that will require a freight truck before you list them for sale.

Never expect your buyer to know the size restrictions between a parcel shipment and a freight shipment.

Freight shipments often require pickup and delivery to or from freight terminals if the destination has limitations or cannot accommodate a large 53-ft semi-truck and trailer.
