What is parcel shipping?

Parcel shipping is a cost-effective way to ship smaller packages that are under 100 pounds and can be lifted without assistance. Since they are smaller, items that qualify for parcel shipments are usually packed in boxes as opposed to pallets or crates. If you send a few smaller items at a time, parcel shipping can be an efficient shipping method for your small business. Learn more about parcel shipping.


How does Freightquote provide parcel shipping services?

How much does it cost to ship packages?

Shipping costs vary depending on the size of the package, the weight, the quantity, and the distance it’s being shipped. By using our tool, however, you’ll streamline your shipping process and gain access to competitive rates. This means you’ll be getting the best deal on shipping costs for your business.


How do I prepare my shipment?

Packages are usually shipped in boxes, so it’s important to find a new box large enough to fit the product and cushioning. Add enough padding material so that the item doesn’t rattle when the box is moved. Seal the box with proper 2” wide packaging tape, and make sure it’s addressed the same way a letter is addressed.
