Shipping one piece of furniture will go smoothly when you look at your furniture moving options.
Perhaps you’ve just purchased a large item, or transporting something valuable to a family member. You may have a special piece of furniture that you would like to ship to your grandchild. Whichever piece of furniture you have , you want to find the best method to get your piece delivered safely and securely.
Firstly, it is important to note that whenever furniture is moved by freight, it is always recommended that, you ship all of your furniture at once, instead of making multiple individual shipments. This reduces cost overall, as well as saving time.
If you only require sending single pieces of furniture, there are a few different options for you to choose from. Depending on size, weight or fragility of the particular item some methods may be more preferable than others.
If you’re looking for ways to ship one piece of furniture, there are three recommended methods when looking to send one item:
- First method: a traditional moving truck.
- Second method: palletized freight delivery.
- Third method: blanket wrap move.
If freighting is the best option, you will want to ensure that you select the appropriately-sized pallet for your item. For pieces that have multiple components, like a bed has a detachable headboard, or a couch has cushions, they may have to be separated and re-packaged.
Additionally, you can choose between a curbside delivery to your address on the pallet or having your item sent to a receiving warehouse, where it can be un-palleted and delivered inside your home or office. This white glove service can allow for proper inspection before it arrives at the chosen destination.
