HOW DO YOU PREPARE A HOOD SHIPPING LOAD 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.

Hoods should be secured in crates to make sure they don't move around in transit and are not susceptible to being scratched by other shipments on the truck. You can build your own crate or have a crating service build it for you. 

WHAT IS THE NMFC (FREIGHT CLASS) FOR SHIPPING HOODS?

The freight class for shipping hoods in a crate is 250. This number will come in handy when you request an online quote. Shipping more auto parts? Refer to our Freight Class Lookup table.
