RESIDENTIAL/PERSONAL GOODS TRANSPORTATION
If your goods are boxed and secured to a pallet or crated, we can arrange to transport these goods as freight. If the items are loose we can refer to a company we have been working with for quite some time. They can arrange to have a small container dropped at your home, you load it, call them when it is ready to go then they pick it up and transport it to the destination location where the receiver would be responsible for unloading.

Common Types of Freight Transportation
OVER THE ROAD - Freight is transported via trucks over roads/highways to their ultimate destination. This is the most common method of freight transportation.
RAIL FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION- Freight is transported on trains and is generally more economical then over the road transportation. However, the transit time for rail moves are usually longer. Also, rail freight transportation for partial loads is not always feasible because most rail carriers require you to purchase the entire container. Rail freight transportation is not recommended for fragile goods because the ride is generally less smooth and cushioned compared to over the road tractor trailer moves.
OCEAN FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION - Freight is transported via Ocean. Containers are filled with goods to be moved to a new location. The containers are stacked on a ship and secured in place in order to avoid shifting during transportation. Ocean freight transportation is often a viable and cost effective solution when delivering goods to International locations. BOTH partial and full loads can be transported via ocean. We would not recommend ocean freight transportation for any shipments that are time sensitive as the transit times are not very good using this method.
AIR FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION- Freight is transported on a plane. This solution is often a good choice when goods must be delivered without delay. While air freight is often faster, it is generally the most expensive of all freight transport options. However, the cost is often offset by preventing any temporary shutdowns in production or missing a sale due to an inability to provide the sold goods to a buyer within an acceptable time frame. Air freight transportation is used for both domestic and international locations.
