Christine K. tsi

Shipped items arrived safe with no damage. That is the most important thing with shipping. Price was very good considering the weight, and the door to door service is excellent. I think the care was much better than Fedex.

Steve C. tsi

TSI was amazingly helpful. Very reassuring, professional, and responsive. The movers were also very professional, and incomparably better than the movers hired by typical furniture delivery services. The only thing I wish was better is the… More ›

Frequently Asked Furniture Shipping Questions

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. Be sure to select a provider who asks about the details - does your cabinet have a glass front? Does the table have a marble top? Those details make a difference - you want to be sure that the furniture shipping company you choose will get items there safely. Contact our shipping experts at 800-626-1257 to find out which services are the best match for your needs.

How much does it cost to ship furniture?

Furniture shipments typically start at $1000. 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. You should always mention any pieces you are considering shipping, as it might be the same price to send a few pieces as it is to send one piece because of weight minimums. Call TSI to learn more at 8--626-1257.

How long does it take to ship furniture?

TSI has 2 furniture shipping options. With Consolidated White Glove service, we consolidate your items with others going in the same direction. Therefore, it can take up to 15 business days for pickup and 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 with this service. Our Full Service Expedited service is ideal when you have a more significant number of items, such as when you are moving a home. Pickup is usually within 3-5 business days and delivery within 5 days after that. 

How do I ship one piece of furniture?

Shipping one piece of furniture is easy with TSI. Our logistics experts 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.

What is the best way to ship furniture?

The best way to ship furniture depends on the piece(s). If you have small, inexpensive pieces, you can consider other shipping options like parcel shipping or USPS. For larger or more valuable pieces, TSI’s White Glove furniture shipping is the best bet. All pieces will be blanket wrapped by the movers for protection, and our White Glove service always includes 2-person inside pickup and delivery. If you have to ship especially fragile or valuable furniture, consider custom crating. TSI offers on-site custom crating to ensure maximum protection for safe transport.

Is it expensive to ship furniture long distance?

If your furniture has value to you - financial or sentimental - the cost is typically worth it. Especially when you have multiple pieces. TSI has a minimum weight of 120 pounds, which means you can ship a small table or chair for essentially the same price as you'd pay to ship that piece along with several others. So be sure to mention all pieces that might need to be shipped. If your furniture is inexpensive and standard, it might make the most financial sense to simply donate it and replace it with something new when you arrive at your destination. TSI's long-distance furniture shipping starts at $800-$1000 and is based on weight and distance.
