Expert long distance furniture shipping and moving

With our nationwide network of furniture shipping experts, TSI can help you ship or move just about any type of furniture long distance. Our logistics specialists will work closely with you to develop a customized furniture transport plan that is tailored to your unique needs, and our operations team will oversee the process from pickup through delivery. Here are some of the types of furniture we ship most often:

Sentimental, valuable, and fragile dining room and kitchen furniture are safe with us. With custom-made moving solutions, we can ship all your kitchen and dining room furniture pieces, including dining tables and sets, bar stools, kitchen islands, bar carts, and cabinets.

Items like bedside tables, beds and frames and headboards, dressers, armoires, and bureaus will be blanket wrapped and prepared for safe transport by our professional White Glove carriers. If you are only shipping a mattress or box spring, our mattress program will help you move your mattress affordably. 

With inside pickup & delivery, we can ship your whole living room, including couches, entertainment centers, coffee and end tables, chests, and bookcases. Shipping a couch or sofa typically starts at $800, so less expensive sofas are typically best shipped as part of a larger household move.


If you’re looking for a rug shipping expert, you’ve found one. Our logistics specialists will collect all the details about your rug so they can recommend the best shipping method. Get your rug ready to ship by following our rug packing guidelines.

For luxury and high-value patio furniture, TSI offers a wide range of shipping solutions. We can ship less expensive pieces too. Our patio furniture shipping begins at $750 so we typically recommend shipping less expensive pieces as part of a larger household move.

Holly and Frank's Story

When Holly and Frank got married, they decided to buy a new home. They were both established professionals and each had a nicely furnished house of their own. Before they moved, they walked through their various rooms and decided which furniture to keep and move to the new house. They weren’t sure about the best way to organize pick-ups from two locations, so they called TSI for help TSI picked up the furniture items from each house and delivered them all to Holly and Frank’s new home. Every piece was blanket wrapped, and an antique armoire was custom crated on-site for extra protection. In addition to moving pieces to their new home, TSI took all the remaining pieces and transported them to a non-profit organization the couple wanted to help.


What kinds of furniture can be shipped?

You can ship almost any type of furniture with TSI. We can help you transport dining room and living room sets, bedroom furniture, sofas and chairs, rugs, and even heirlooms and antiques. Contact our shipping experts to start building a customized transport plan that suits your needs.

Can I ship a rug?

Yes, you can ship a rug! We can transport all rugs, including specialty or heirloom rugs. 

How much does it cost to ship furniture?

Furniture shipments typically start at $750, but the exact cost of your shipment will depend on the size and number of items you’re shipping, the distance they will travel, and any special considerations such as glass or delicate woodwork. It may not be worth it to ship inexpensive or easily replaceable furniture unless it has sentimental value. 

How long does it take to ship furniture?

Because we consolidate items going in the same direction onto the same truck, you can expect it to take up to 15 business days for pickup and up to 20 additional business days for delivery. If your pickup and delivery locations are in well-traveled areas, this timeline could be much quicker. We also offer priority pickup options.

What is “White Glove” shipping?

"White Glove” shipping includes indoor pickup and delivery, packing, and crating if necessary. All furniture shipped with TSI is shipped using White Glove services to ensure the safest possible journey. Insurance is always available to cover the value of your items.

Can I ship one piece of furniture?

Yes, you can ship one piece of furniture. The logistics experts at TSI will work with you to create a customized plan for your shipment, whether you have a single piece of furniture, a few items, or an entire home to transport. If it’s an inexpensive piece, it may be more cost effective for you to simply purchase a new one.

How do I pack furniture for shipping?

The right packing method depends on the piece of furniture you’re shipping. Generally, you’ll follow these steps:

  1. Clean your furniture and disassemble it as much as possible.

  2. Pack any disassembled items, such as legs, knobs, or glass panels, separately in properly packed boxes.

  3. Wrap the item in moving blankets, and secure the blankets in place with high-quality packing tape.

  4. Shrink wrap your furniture to hold the blankets in place and protect it from moisture.

Excellent work ethic of delivery men -- made sure everything was just right before they left. Piano was flawless.

My Grandfather Clock arrived in perfect shape. The guys who moved it, placed it, hung the pendulum and weights (which I didn't expect). All I had to do was set the time. It's been keeping perfect time since.
