Need a freight shipping quote? Request one via email through our Contact Us form! - The most accurate way to provide a shipping quote is manually. Most furniture dealers base their shipping quotes on flat pricing. Sometimes this is good, often times is otherwise.
|LESS THAN TRUCKLOAD FREIGHT SHIPPING|
Shipping quotes are based on many factors such as, distance, accessibility, dimensions, weight, freight class, etc. To standardize the freight shipping cost in LTL, the National Motor Freight Traffic Association has set some criteria called freight classes. The system uses the density, stow-ability, handling, and liability of the cargo to find its class. There are 18 determined classes that range from 50 to 500. The cost of your freight will directly depend on its class.
AFBC will try and find the best value in shipping with the most reputable freight carriers, such as FedEx, UPS, YRC, R&L, ArcBest, XPO (formerly ConWay), etc. This takes time, please allow us 24 hours or less, on a weekday, to provide you with a freight shipping estimate.
Since the truck delivering your goods has multiple shipments, you will only have to pay for the cargo space your goods are utilizing. Generally speaking you can transport any package that weighs more than 150 lbs and is large dimensionally for significantly less. This is Less Than Truckload shipping.
The most apparent factor for shipment cost is the distance between the origin (El Paso, Texas) and destination (Your City, State) points. The higher the range, the higher will be the time and fuel required for it. Currently with the rise of e-commerce deliveries, LTL freight sometimes has to be transferred into smaller final mile trucks, in order for shipments be delivered in dense urban areas and smaller residential neighborhoods, which can also add to the cost of the shipment. Carriers offer the best value in shipping, when several items are being shipped at once.
All AFBC freight shipping quotes, will include two delivery options:
( 1 ) Customer pick up at the destination freight shipping warehouse (lower cost option): Customers will be responsible for the safe tie-down and transport of goods to their home. The address, phone number and directions via Google Maps, will be included on every freight quote, for your convenience
( 2 ) Freight shipping-curbside residential delivery (higher cost option): The carrier will only deliver the goods to a garage or front door entry. They will not take goods inside your home nor assemble them. Please make sure that you have adequate help, to move the furniture inside your home.
The exception will be if FedEx Ground / UPS Ground, is the best shipping value, as these options are automatically curbside residential deliveries.
AFBC does not offer White Glove delivery (assembly / set-up) from freight shipping carriers. Some freight carriers offer these services, for an additional fee. After an AFBC freight shipping quote is provided, you may inquiry and make arrangements with them directly, for such additional services.
= Freight shipping quotes are only provided via email - Available within the 48 contiguous United States
