How to Ship Wood Floors

FreightCenter routinely handles shipping wood flooring of all types.

  • Laminate
  • Hardwood
  • Engineered hardwood
  • Bamboo
  • Cork
  • And more…

 

Whether buying or selling wood flooring, FreightCenter makes shipping wood floors easy and affordable. Follow the suggestions on this page, and you’ll see how.

Shipping wood flooring is usually done via LTL (less-than-truckload) freight hauls. But if you are shipping custom flooring with extra-long planks or enough flooring to cover a vast area in the thousands of square feet, a flatbed truck arranged through our Truckload division is the way to go.

How Do You Prepare Flooring for LTL Freight Shipping?

Preparing your wood flooring for LTL (less-than-truckload) freight shipping is essential to ensure safe and efficient transport. Since your shipment will share the truck with loads from other shippers, it’s crucial to package your flooring to prevent damage during transit and minimize the risk to other cargo. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you prepare your flooring shipment:

Step 1: Follow the Manufacturer’s Shipping Method:

Begin by consulting the manufacturer’s guidelines for shipping wood flooring. Adhering to their recommended method, which is designed specifically for the product, will often yield the best results.

Step 2: Select a Suitable Pallet:

  • – Choose a sturdy shipping pallet that is in good condition.
  • – Make sure the pallet is appropriately sized, allowing enough space for all the boxes without any overhang.

Step 3: Package the Wood Flooring:

  • – Boxed Flooring: If your flooring comes in boxes, ensure each box is intact and undamaged.
  • – Palletize: Stack the boxes on the pallet carefully, ensuring none extend beyond the pallet edges, as pallet overhang is the leading cause of freight damage.
  • – Strap or Band: Secure the boxes to the pallet using high-quality straps or bands to prevent shifting during transport.

Step 4: Protect Against Moisture and Impact:

  • – Wrapping: Wrap the palletized flooring with waterproof material to protect it from moisture.
  • – Corner Protectors: Apply corner protectors or edge boards to the pallet to shield edges from impact.
  • – Stretch Wrap: Use stretch wrap to secure the pallet and provide additional moisture protection.

Step 5: Block and Brace Premium Wood Flooring:

  • – If shipping premium wood flooring in crates, ensure it’s securely wrapped and banded to prevent internal shifting.
  • – Blockage or additional bracing should be used to stabilize the flooring within the crate during transit.

Step 6: Label the Shipment Properly:

  • – Attach clear and accurate shipping labels to the pallet.
  • – Include “Fragile” or “Handle with Care” labels where appropriate.

Step 7: Document the Shipment:

  • – Take photographs of the prepared pallet from multiple angles for insurance purposes.
  • – Complete the Bill of Lading (BOL) with accurate and detailed information about your shipment.

By following these steps, you can prepare your wood flooring shipment for LTL freight shipping securely and efficiently, minimizing the risk of damage and ensuring safe transit. If you have any concerns or need expert advice, contact FreightCenter’s shipping specialists for assistance at 800.716.7608 or use our online tools for an instant quote.
