    Default Shipping Boxed Furniture to Gander, NFLD?

    We have a client in Gander, Newfoundland who purchased 3 pieces of furniture. We need to get them there, preferably on a backhaul as the shipping budget is tight on this order, however we've been coming up short on options.

    Would appreciate any suggestions for reasonably priced options. They are currently not palletized, however they can be consolidated onto a pallet if it's a cheaper alternative.

    www.vitran.com, They have an online calculator but you are better off just calling them and they will help you out.

    I don't think you will find a cheaper and more reliable company to ship this via truck.

    If you can palletize them, then i'd suggest shipping it LTL. LTL carriers i've had good exp with are Manitoulin and SLH.

    Check out www.uship.com

    freighters bid on your cargo, it can get very reasonable, but I have also heard that it can be way out to lunch sometimes

    Thanks for the replies. We already submitted a uship request but haven't received any replies.

    The pieces are too large for Greyhound.

    Give Quik-X a call for a quote. They do LTL and most likely will be your cheapest option (for a trucking company).

    East west express also does LTL and may be worth calling (though may be more expensive if they go that far).
