How do I ship…. – Delivery Quote Compare

Traffic Jam

The last part of our blogs on how do I is how do I ship. There
are two main sections on Delivery Quote Compare for the shipping or moving of freight.
One of the first the first things to consider is air or sea freight, most people
are unsure. For this if you’re not sure call our help desk 0808-169-2000 and we
can advise, alternatively you can list it in both categories. All of our quotes
are no obligation so it doesn’t matter if you list it twice.


Freight forwarding is a specific category and take into
account not only how do I ship it but also international rules, taxes and
transport. Because of this we partner with several professional and experienced
freight transport companies that will give you extra guidance and advice before
committing to anything.

Road Haulage

How do I ship containers? This is the difference for what is
classified as road haulage, instead of single items this relates to loads such
as containers or multi pallets. The listing is easy and quotes for this category
are normally clearly explained based on size and mileage.

Special Care item and pianos

Surprisingly lots of pianos are moved through Delivery Quote
Compare, it amazing how many are moved. We’ve written a few blogs on how do I
ship or move a piano,

For special care items we list this category separately to
ensure transporters understand the extra requirement for care and packaging. Although
sometimes more expensive than moving a sofa for instance this is because often special
care items may need more room or even individual transport.

For any advice on moving anything from anywhere either list
