FAQs for large item shipping

How do I ship my large item(s)?

Packing and shipping companies have several ways to ship large item(s). The best method will depend on what you’re shipping and how much you have to ship. For large or heavy items such as pianos and other large instruments, china cabinets, grandfather clocks, furniture, appliances, large boxes, and even eBay purchases, please contact our logistics specialists so we can determine the optimal custom solution for you.

What is the easiest way to ship my large item(s)?

The easiest way to ship large or heavy items is with a professional freight shipping company such as TSI. We offer both economy and white glove shipping options (like most packing and shipping companies), as well as specialty options like air-ride suspension and climate control trucks to accommodate most large item shipment requirements.

With a nationwide network of shipping partners to choose from, TSI’s interstate shipping specialists have the experience needed to get your items to their final destination as easily as possible, whether across the country or the other side of the state.

How do I pack my large item(s)?

The correct packing method depends on the item you’re shipping. For detailed packing instructions for some of the most commonly shipped items, read our “How Do I Ship That?” guides.

If you’re shipping boxed items using our economy service, you’ll pack your items yourself and help with curbside pickup and delivery. Our white glove shipping option is best for those who are unable or prefer not to have to pack their items. Our shipping specialists will come into your home to pack your items so you can rest assured they’ll be packed appropriately. For more fragile or odd shaped items, we offer on-site custom crating.

What’s the cheapest way to ship large item(s)?

The cheapest way to ship large items depends on the item(s) you’re shipping and how far they have to travel.

If you’re shipping large or heavy boxes or household items like furniture, the cheapest shipping method is often consolidated freight. TSI has access to a network of packing and shipping companies and is able to secure available space on trucks going the same direction as your shipment.

Are there any hidden fees with shipping out of state?

Often, packing and shipping companies will offer you a low rate and then surprise you with hidden fees like mileage or loading costs. There are no hidden fees when shipping with TSI—as long as you provide accurate size and weight dimensions, as well as information on any access limitations on either end, your quote will match the price you pay. 

What is the best way to ship large fragile items to a different state?

This depends on several things, such as the size, value, and weight of the item being shipped. Specifically for large or heavy shipments, freight shipping is usually the most efficient option. Depending on the service level, like other packing and shipping companies, we have several options for shipments including:

Economy shipping, which requires you to do the boxing of your items. To assist with this, we also offer a wide array of supplies to help you pack for your successful shipment. For tips and tricks to packing your sentimental or valuable items, check out our detailed “How Do I Ship That?” guides. 

White glove shipping can remove the stress of packing and transporting your fragile and valuable items across states. It also includes free in-home delivery, along with the preparation of your goods for transport.
