When you have items that are easily boxed, TSI’s flat-rate box-and-ship program is the perfect solution. It’s simple: with just a few clicks, we’ll ship empty boxes to your door – you pack them up, give us a call, and we’ll transport them anywhere in the continental US. Flat-rate box shipping is a convenient and affordable way to transport easy-to-pack household goods, including clothing, linens, books, toys, household goods, and other non-valuable, non-fragile items.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to building requirements, we may not be able to accommodate at-the-door or inside pickup service in some apartment buildings. We will confirm your building's policies with you when you call to schedule pickup.

Box Shipping FAQs

What’s the easiest way to ship boxes?

TSI introduced our Box-and-Ship solutions to answer this question. We’ve been shipping boxes and much more for over 30 years. Now with this turnkey solution, you have the convenience of having empty boxes shipped to your door for you to pack and label. Once the boxes are ready, we pick them up transport them to your destination. Insurance is included at up to $100/box, and you don’t even need to leave your home!

How long does it take to receive my empty boxes?

We will reach out to confirm your order and get your supplies scheduled. Typically they will ship within one business day and arrive 2-4 business days after that.

How long does it take for boxes to be delivered once they are packed and picked up?

Our box shipping usually takes 5 business days or less for delivery. It will be less or more within that range depending on the delivery location.

How much can I pack in each box?

Each box is 18"x14"x12", and there is a 40 pound weight limit per box. The amount you will be able to fit will vary greatly based on the size and weight of the items. For example, books are much heavier than clothes. Be sure to pack items carefully for transport. You can get some tips here.

What happens if my items get damaged?

TSI has a great record of undamaged shipments. However, things can happen. We may require proof of purchase documentation to confirm the value of the damaged item(s). If a box arrives damaged, please take thorough photos of each side of the damaged box including the shipping label prior to opening the box as well as photos of the damaged item inside the box once it's opened. You must keep the damaged packaging and item for the duration of a claim as the provider may opt to pick them up for inspection. Call TSI within 48 hours of delivery to report damages. If items inside are damaged but the box has no damage, items will not be covered, as that results from a packing issue.

Packing Tips
1. If you must send fragile items (not recommended), please double bubble wrap them.
2. Fill any empty space within each box with paper, bubble wrap, dishtowels, or anything else  that will cushion contents and fill space.
3. Avoid placing your items directly against the walls of the box; use paper or bubble wrap between the wall of the box and your items.
