How to Make Shipping Lamps Easy and Affordable
Whether you’re buying or selling lamps, FreightCenter makes shipping lamps easy and affordable. Follow the suggestions on this page, and you’ll see how. FreightCenter now offers low-cost parcel shipping as well as freight shipping. Lights that measure less than 108 inches long and weigh less than 150 pounds can probably be shipped as a parcel rather than as freight. Large, heavy lamps or shipments of multiple lights should be made as LTL (less-than-truckload) freight shipping. Whichever type of shipping you need, FreightCenter can handle it for you.

How Do You Pack Lamps for Parcel Shipping?
When shipping a lamp as a parcel, you will need two double-wall packing boxes, one for the lamp and the other for the shade. Gather up the cord and secure it to the lamp at the base. Disassemble the lamp and pack the pieces, such as the finial and harp, into a small box. Pack the small box with paper so the pieces don’t move around in transit. Pack the base of the box where you will put the lamp with paper or foam packaging material. Then, bubble-wrap the outside of the small box and put it in the box, leaving room for the lamp, of course. Wrap the lamp with paper or bubble wrap and place it in the box. Secure the lamp in the box by filling it in around the sides and top of the lamp with paper or bubble-plastic packing material. Wrap the shade in paper or bubble wrap and place it in the other box. Fill in gaps around and above the shade with bubble wrap, paper, or foam. Give the bulb to someone or throw it away. It probably won’t survive the journey.
How Do You Pack Lamps for LTL 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. When shipping a valuable lamp, buy or build a crate for the lamp. Disassemble the lamp and protect it as described above for parcel shipping. Secure the lamp and shade inside the box so they do not move around during shipping. Don’t be afraid to over-protect the lamp and shade. The money and time you spend filling the crate with packaging materials will be worth the effort to protect a valuable lamp during shipping.
