Whether you’re moving to a new home or simply buying a new living room set, you can find a qualified transporter on uShip to get your furniture shipped. View our cost to ship furniture page for an inside look at how the uShip marketplace works. Being familiar and comfortable with the process will help lead to a great shipping experience.
When it’s time to find a transporter, you’ll be able to choose from several different service types on uShip: LTL freight service, Blanket Wrap Service, courier services or White Glove Service. LTL Freight is typically the least expensive option for shipping your furniture. If you choose the most basic transport- only service, you’ll be responsible for preparing your items for transport. You can also choose freight and packaging service, which means the service provider will box, palletize or crate the items in accordance with freight standards so they are eligible for freight transport.
Blanket Wrap Service is appropriate when shipping large and fragile items or for full household moves. With this service, you’re responsible for packing small items into boxes and disassembling large items. The transporter will use protective blankets to wrap the rest of your items so they are secure during transit.
Courier Services are best for shipping small packages. This is a specialized service that is typically fast and secure. If you are only shipping small boxes, this could be the most efficient service type for you.
White Glove Service will give you the highest level of care. If you’re transporting valuable or delicate items that require considerable attention you'll want to consider a white glove service. With this service, the transporter does all of the work for you. They will disassemble, prepare, package, wrap and load your items for you.
No matter which service you need for your furniture shipment, uShip service providers are ready to help you.
