Shipping Light Bulbs Made Easy and Affordable

Whether you’re buying or selling, FreightCenter makes shipping light bulbs easy and affordable. Follow the suggestions on this page, and you’ll see how.

Many light bulbs and tubes (fluorescent or LED) can be shipped as parcels. For large orders of light bulbs, shipping via LTL (less-than-truckload) freight is the most cost-effective and dependable way to go.

Whichever type of shipping you need, FreightCenter can handle it for you.

Preparations for LTL Shipping Light Bulbs

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 threaten other shipments on the truck.

Remember that your shipment will be put on or off trucks via forklift at least six times with LTL freight.

  • At the point of pickup.
  • Dropping off at the originating terminal.
  • Put on the truck doing the hauling.
  • Dropping off at the destination terminal.
  • Put on the delivery truck.
  • Dropping off at the final destination.

Because light bulbs can break easily, it’s important to package them snugly, with plenty of resilient packaging to take the brunt of any accidental bump the cargo might receive in transit or on the forklift. Bulbs should be in their original cardboard packaging whenever possible. If that’s not possible, wrap each bulb in bubble wrap or tissue paper.

Fill spaces between the bulbs with paper packaging or bubble wrap to keep the bulbs immobile. Insulate the bottom and four sides with foam padding. Place another sheet of foam padding between the top of the bulbs and the double-sided shipping box. Seal the box with packing tape, wrap it with a blanket, and strap it to a shipping pallet. If putting more than one box on the pallet, shrink-wrap them together before banding them to the pallet.
