TSI ships large boxes safely

For box and pallet shipping, TSI has the experience you need to handle the job reliably and affordably. If you have too many boxes for UPS but not enough to fill a moving truck, we’re here for you. With decades of experience behind us, shipping large boxes is safer with TSI.

Shipping large boxes the right way

What should you pack in a box?
Your furniture and appliances should be crated or blanket wrapped. For everything else, packing and shipping your belongings in large boxes is the safest way to transport your goods. This includes:
•   Clothes
•   Dishes
•   Pots & Pans
•   Knick Knacks
•   Small pieces of furniture, such as end tables

How do you choose the right box?
Using the right box is essential for keeping your items safe during transport. Follow these tips when choosing and packing boxes:
•   Purchase new boxes for fragile or valuable items. Used boxes are more likely to tear.
•   Sturdy used boxes can be used for soft, unbreakable items like clothes or linens.
•   Don’t use boxes that are too large. Empty space allows your items to shift during transit and may cause damage. If your boxes are too large, use clothing, linens, packing paper, or bubble wrap to fill empty spaces.
•   Make sure you use heavy-duty double-walled boxes for large, fragile, and heavy items.

Crate shipping services

Crating offers maximum protection during shipment. If you’re shipping fragile or valuable items, crating can help keep them safer than sturdy cardboard boxes. Some items you may need to crate prior to shipment include: 
•  Statues 
•  Dollhouses
•  Artwork
•  Curio Cabinets
•  Grandfather clocks
You may also need to crate items with marble or glass details.

Pallet shipping

 

If you have 10 or more boxes to ship, they may require palletization. Palletizing is a more effective method of transporting many boxes across a long distance.
Our shipping specialists may recommend a pallet service if they deem it necessary. Just call us at 1-800-626-1257.

Have used you to ship from Ohio to Oakland … and now this order from Oakland to Sparks NV. Service keeps getting better. Chest that was made for me from friend was cradled in wrap and treated like glass. No problems .. and delivery was earlier than expected by 15 minutes. Thanks again.
