How To Ship A Few Pieces Of Furniture

Analyze different moving options before deciding what's best for you. Here are some good options to move just a few pieces of furniture.

Rent A Van Or Truck To Move Your Furniture Yourself

If you don’t live too far away from the place where your furniture is being stored or the place you need to take it, you have the option of renting a truck, van, or trailer to go and moving one piece of furniture or more yourself.

However, if you live more than a day’s drive to and from the furniture or moving the furniture cross country, this may be a lot more expensive and inconvenient, since you’ll need to rent the truck or van for multiple days, pay for lodging and meals, and spend a lot of time driving to and from the location of your furniture.

Use A Container Moving Company Like PODS

PODS and similar container moving companies let you get a container shipped to your home. Then, you can load the furniture into the container, which will be picked up and then delivered to your desired location. If you can handle moving few piece of furniture yourself, this is a pretty good option, and it's fairly cost-effective and convenient. You should learn how much do PODS costs for moving?

Ship Your Furniture With A Parcel Service

You can ship some types of furniture with UPS, FedEx, and other parcel services. This is only an option with just a few pieces of furniture that can be easily disassembled and packed into a few boxes for shipping.

Delivery is typically very fast, but this is also usually the most expensive option for moving a single or few pieces of furniture of a moderate size, so it’s not practical if you are shipping more than one or maybe two pieces of furniture.

Work With A Mover For LTL (Less Than Truckload) Shipping

There are small single item movers that provide furniture moving services that can help with moving a few pieces of furniture and you can contract it to a professional moving company as well. While lots of single furniture movers in the moving industry only offer full truckload shipping for your goods, moving companies like Three Movers also offer LTL (Less Than Truckload) shipping to affordably ship across the country.

Basically, this means that your shipment will share a van or a truck with shipments from other people that are going to a similar location. The moving companies truck will stop at multiple places throughout its journey and drop off the furniture and other items and appliances at the specified locations.

This usually takes longer than the other options on this list, and the arrival dates of your few piece of furniture may be a little bit less precise, but that's not something to worry about if you're not in a hurry to get your few items as it comes with small moving costs and is also convenient.
