Having A Large Item Delivered Across The Country Or Across Town?

George Newman

If you have a large item that needs to be delivered to another location, you need to know what your options are and how best to deal with it. In the case of items that need to go a long distance, like across the country, it is a good idea to consider shipping them with a private carrier to be sure they get there is the condition you expect them to. Consider your options carefully when you are dealing with large items so you can be sure they make the trip intact.

Finding A Truck Company Or Shipper

There are a lot of shippers out there to choose from, but when you start looking for one, you need to check their ratings, reviews, and overall customer satisfaction with past deliveries. If they are not rated very high, move onto the next company. It doesn't matter whether your item is worth a dollar or a million dollars, you want a shipper that will take care of it and treat the item properly from the time it goes on their truck to the time it comes off.

Loading and Unloading

In most cases, the shipper can assist with the loading and unloading process but unless they tell you they will, don't expect that they are going to do the work for you. With some items, you might even need to have a rigger come and deal with the loading and unloading to make sure it is done right. If the item you are shipping is fragile, it is even more important that it is rigged right, loaded properly, and secured to eliminate any movement when the truck moves. You might want to talk to whoever is receiving the shipment on the other end to make sure they arrange to get it unloaded on their end as well.

Cost Of Shipping

If you have an item big enough that you have to truck ship it, you don't have the option of sending it with one of the large carriers so considering what they would charge for shipping just doesn't matter. What is important though, is what the private truck company or shipper is going to charge. It could be very low because they are already going to your shipping location and the load will have other items with it, or it could be expensive because it is being shipped all by itself.

In either case, planning for the cost is important to take the time to discuss the shipping options with the companies that you are considering be early in the process. If the cost is going to be shared or charged to the receiver on the other end, you need to know what it will cost when you first talk to the party you are shipping the item to. Make sure you have all the details early in the process, so there are no surprises when it is time to load the truck.
