Efficiently ship furniture and home goods with expert guidance. Discover packaging tips, shipping methods, and trusted solutions for a smooth and secure transport process.

Shipping furniture and home goods can be daunting, but with proper planning and preparation, you can ensure that your items arrive safely and intact at their destination. 


How to Ship Furniture and Home Goods


Proper packaging protects your furniture and home goods during transit. Here are some tips to help you package your items securely:


  1. Disassemble if possible: If your furniture is easily dismantled, take it apart to reduce its size and make it easier to package. Keep the screws, bolts, and other small parts in labeled bags to ensure nothing gets lost.
  2. Use protective materials: Wrap furniture pieces in bubble wrap or furniture blankets to prevent scratches and dents. Use packing peanuts, foam, or crumpled paper to cushion any gaps.
  3. Secure fragile items: If you have fragile home goods, such as glassware or delicate decor, individually wrap them in bubble wrap or packing paper. Place them in sturdy boxes and fill any empty spaces with packing materials.
  4. Label and document: Label each package clearly with the contents, destination address, and handling instructions. Take photographs of each item before packaging as a reference for potential insurance claims.

Mode of Transportation

Choosing the right mode of transportation is crucial when shipping furniture and home goods. Consider the following options based on your needs:

  1. Freight shipping: Freight shipping is often the most suitable option for larger furniture pieces or bulk shipments. Freight shipments are typically transported on pallets or in crates. You can use a freight company or shipping broker to arrange transportation.
  2. LTL (Less Than Truckload): If your shipment doesn’t fill an entire truck, you can opt for LTL shipping. LTL carriers consolidate multiple shipments to maximize truck space. This is cost-effective for smaller furniture items or a few boxes of home goods.
  3. Parcel shipping: Smaller and lighter items can be shipped using parcel services like UPS, FedEx, or the postal service. These services are convenient for individual home goods and offer various shipping speeds and tracking options.
Finely-tailored freight solutions

To create value for our customers by delivering customized shipping solutions that meet their unique needs and to fulfill shipping demands from simple to complex with expertise, guidance and ingenuity.

LTL Shipping

LTL shipping involves combining multiple small shipments from different customers onto one truck, allowing each customer to share the shipment cost. Trust the experts at FreightCenter to give you the best prices and the most comprehensive options for all your LTL freight shipping needs.

Full Truckload

Truckload shipping, also known as full truckload (FTL), is a transportation option for freight that requires the entire trucks trailer space. Unlike LTL shipping, FTL shipping is reserved for larger commodities that exceed LTL weight and size limits, typically weighing more than 20,000 pounds or having dimensions that exceed 12 feet in length, 8 feet in width, and 8 feet in height. We deliver optimized solutions for full or partial truckloads and competitive dry van, flatbed, and refrigerated freight pricing. We can cover your full truckload shipping needs.

Expedited Services

Nationwide Expedited Trucking services move your freight securely and rapidly. Your freight requires fast delivery; our freight shipping experts can get your shipment fast, whether in one large box or a full truckload. Expedited shipping is a transportation option that prioritizes the speed of delivery for freight that needs to be shipped quickly. This can be especially important for urgent situations, such as engine repairs or replacements for critical machinery.

Specialized Freight Shipping

Specialized is a transportation option for items that require specialized handling, equipment, or shipping conditions. Specialized shipments may include high-value engines, oversized engines, or engines that require temperature-controlled transportation. The most reliable Specialized Freight Services rates from all the top carriers are just a few steps away. From white glove service to international shipping, we've got you covered.
