How to Make Shipping Outboard Motors Easy and Affordable
Whether you’re buying or selling outboard motors, FreightCenter makes shipping outboard motors easy and affordable for you. Follow the suggestions on this page and you’ll see how.

Freight shipping outboard motors is usually done via LTL (less-than-truckload) hauls. If you are shipping a smaller outboard motor (under 150 lb.), you might consider shipping it as a parcel rather than freight. Whichever type of shipping you need, FreightCenter can handle it for you.
How Do You Arrange for Parcel Shipping Through Freightcenter?
As a one-stop shipping solution, FreightCenter offers FTL (full truckload), LTL (less-than-truckload) and Parcel shipping. To get a quote on shipping outboard motors as a parcel, request a quote online or call our team of parcel experts at 800.716.7608.
How Do You Prepare Outboard Motors 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.
Package your outboard motor in a crate for the highest level of protection.
