Buying and selling furniture online is becoming more and more common. Online furniture retailers and independent furniture makers are reaching customers across the country. People are finding the perfect piece being sold on online marketplaces, and shipping furniture has become a necessary service.

 

HOW TO SHIP FURNITURE

Shipping furniture long distances isn’t something you want to go into blindly. It’s important to know the basics First, discover what furniture shipping service is right for you and your piece. Some things to consider are dimensions, distance, and any additional protection the item may need during shipping.

 

Furniture Shipping Service Types:

    • Shipping Furniture as LTL Freight: Affordable shipping, but risk damage and customer service. Many of the larger or chain retailers use LTL (Less-Than-Truckload) as their preferred method of shipping, as it is the cheapest furniture shipping option, especially for high volume shipping that requires less hands-on care. LTL freight is often transferred from truck to truck, increasing the risk of damages, and delivered on the customer’s curb, which can be inconvenient. If you’re shipping furniture overseas, freight may be the only option.

 

    • Independent Furniture Shipping Carriers: Affordable shipping with fewer touchpoints than LTL freight. When you work with an independent carrier, it’s easier to avoid damage from truck transfers. Often, these carriers have additional space in their truck, or they have made a delivery, and don’t want to drive home with an empty truck. This means they are able to deliver your items at a lower cost, and you’re supporting a small business.

 

  • White Glove Furniture Delivery: Best care and customer service, with minimal additional cost. White glove or in-home delivery providers are the most experienced in shipping furniture and offer the most hands-on, personalized services. If you’re shipping a family heirloom, antiques, artwork, glass pieces, or other fragile items, white glove shipping provides additional protection by blanket-wrapping your pieces. They ship furniture from first to final mile. When you work with an in-home delivery service, you benefit as the carriers bring the items into your home and place them exactly where you want them.

 

Depending on the furniture delivery service you opt to use, you may need to prepare the furniture for shipping yourself. This is most common when shipping furniture as LTL freight. If using in-home delivery or white glove delivery, you may want to know how to prepare for delivery and room-of-choice service.
