Types of TVs FreightCenter Ships

- And more …
Shipping a TV can be handled via LTL (less-than-truckload) hauls. Transporting many TVs can be done via TL (Truckload). Whether sending one or one hundred TVs, FreightCenter can help you save time and money.
How to Ship and Package a TV Safely
You save money with LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping because your televisions share the truck with loads from other shippers. A requirement for LTL shipping is properly packaging the cargo. Proper packaging is crucial when shipping televisions via freight to ensure their safe arrival at the destination.
Here are some key steps to follow:
- Choose the Right Box:
- Try and ship televisions in the original packaging for the best protection.
- Suppose the original packaging is not available. Select a sturdy, double-walled cardboard TV box slightly larger than the TV.
- Ensure the box is in good condition without any damages or weak spots.
- Protect the TV:
- Wrap the TV in bubble wrap or foam padding to provide cushioning against impact.
- Pay extra attention to the corners and edges, as they are vulnerable to damage.
- Secure the TV:
- Place the wrapped TV inside the box and fill any empty spaces with packing peanuts or foam inserts to prevent movement during transit.
- Use packing tape to seal the box securely, reinforcing all seams and edges.
- Labeling and Documentation:
- Clearly label the box as “Fragile,” “Keep Upright,” and “Handle with Care” to alert handlers to the delicate nature of the contents.
- Include shipping labels with the sender’s and recipient’s addresses, contact details, and any tracking numbers provided.
- Attach a copy of the bill of lading to the outside of the box.
- Palletize the TV:
- Place the securely packaged TV on a pallet and use strapping or shrink wrap to secure it to the pallet firmly.
- This adds stability and moveability for the loading and unloading of the TV.
- Document the Packaging Process:
- Please take pictures of the packaged TV from multiple angles before the freight carrier picks it up.
- This documentation can serve as evidence in case of any damage or loss claims.
- Insure the Shipment:
- Consider purchasing insurance coverage to protect against potential damages or losses during transit.
- Freight carriers only have limited liability for the goods they move.
By properly packaging and securing the TV, you can minimize the risk of damage and ensure a successful freight shipping experience.
The Cost of Shipping a TV
The cost of shipping a TV can vary depending on several factors. Here are some key considerations that can impact the shipping cost:
- Size and Weight: The dimensions and weight of the TV play a significant role in determining the shipping cost. As well as how many TVs are being shipped.
- Distance: The distance between the origin and destination affects the shipping cost. Longer distances generally result in higher shipping charges.
- Shipping Method: The chosen shipping method, such as ground freight or air freight, will impact the cost. Air freight tends to be more expensive but offers faster delivery.
- Additional Services: Additional services, like insurance, inside delivery, and lift gate delivery, can add to the shipping cost.
For an accurate cost estimate, obtaining shipping quotes from FreightCenter is essential.
