Small packages that are too large to send by traditional mail, such as bowling balls, home electronics, microwaves, or computers can easily be shipped as less-than-truckload freight or by local courier services on uShip. Because of their weight, they can incur heavy overage charges at traditional package shipping companies. However, at uShip you can save money by having transporters compete for your business in our marketplace.
Visit our cost to ship household goods page for more information on the uShip shipping process. There you will get an inside look at past real-world small package shipping transactions and be able to familiarize yourself with both the shipping costs and terms.
With thousands of service providers using uShip every day, it is easy to find someone to pick up and deliver your package along their route. You will be taking advantage of empty cargo space in a vehicle that is already traveling to or near your desired destination. The extra efficiency in consolidating shipments means the transporter can pass the savings to you while reducing the carbon footprint on the environment.
When listing a small package shipment, give accurate measurements of the size of the item or box, the contents and the weight. By giving complete information on your shipment, you can help transporters give you the best price possible and ensure that it is properly handled in transit.
