How to Get Freight Delivered

uShip makes freight delivery as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1 | Create Your Listing

In order to find the best option out of the many cheap haulage companies around you need to be as specific with your listing as possible. This will help to match you with the right service for the items you need moving. For instance, we mentioned moving a professional snooker table, and this needs to be done with care and attention, to ensure no damage occurs. By documenting your items accordingly, you can ensure no damage happens. The most information you give, the easier it is to identify the type of service for your delivery. You should write down the number of units, as well as their size and their individual weights. Most freight carriers use pallets, boxes, and drums to move items, and the more the company knows about your delivery, the easier they can identify which method to use. You should add in any special information you have regarding your items, such as if the item is fragile, etc. There are also different types of freight company to think about, including LTL (Less Than Load), TL (Truckload Freight), and other quick delivery services. It is possible to deliver via freight across the globe also.
