Use only the packaging you need to keep the items secure. Don‚Äôt overdo it and add unnecessary weight to your load because it will affect the price.
Make sure your cargo is packaged securely to avoid any damage while in transit.
Set expectations properly and make sure the recipient of your shipper knows that the delivery date can vary.
Residential shipping with Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) is a great alternative to hiring movers, but you need to talk to a carrier to ensure they offer residential service and determine what the cost would be.
Less than truckload (LTL) shipping allows multiple shippers to share space on the same truck, which can be cost-effective for small to medium-sized shipments. However, if you have a shipment that fills an entire truck, FTL will be cheaper and more direct.
The most significant difference between LTL and full truckload (FTL) freight is the size of a shipment. As the name suggests, less-than-truckload (LTL) only takes up a portion of a trailer, while FTL fills it entirely. When shipping FTL, you are responsible for the total costs associated with the truck, driver, fuel, and other transportation costs. With LTL, you share those costs with the other shippers who have shipments on the trailer.
