Freight Shipping


Freight Shipping

Typically speaking, when most people move, they use standard moving services. At AM Moving, we offer both full-service (including packing and unpacking) and self-service options to meet your needs.

However, if you’re willing to put in a little extra work and you want to save even more money,
you may decide that our freight shipping is the best choice. If you’re not familiar with freight
shipping services, allow us to illustrate how it works.

Freight vs. Standard Moving

With our standard moving options, part of the service we provide is coming into your home to pick up your belongings. Whether you pack everything yourself or you let us take care of it, we
will handle the heavy lifting and transportation of all of your items from point A to point B. With freight shipping, however, it’s usually only curb-to-curb. This means that you have to pack everything yourself and have it ready to go once the truck arrives. We can provide pickup and drop-off services as well, but we do charge extra for that, so keep that in mind.

Packing and Loading With Freight Shipping

When you use a standard moving service, boxes and other bulky items are handled individually. Everything is stacked inside the truck however it will fit, meaning that some pieces may be better outside of the box.

With freight shipping, however, all of your boxes have to be on a pallet. Large furniture and appliances can be loaded onto the truck by themselves, but they have to be of a certain size, and they are not as well protected against damage unless you cover them accordingly. When packing for freight, you want to load as many boxes onto a pallet as possible (heaviest ones on the bottom) and then wrap them all in cling film. You can usually find the film at any moving and storage place, including at AM Moving.

Carrying your boxes to and from the curb is handled by you (unless you pay us to do it), and we typically give you a time frame when we will pick everything up. Unlike standard moving services, a time frame is necessary because we may be making multiple stops.

Full Truck Load (FTL) vs. Less Than Load (LTL)

If you have a lot of stuff to move, you may be able to reserve an entire truck. FTL shipping will cost more, but the truck will only carry your belongings and go to your destination.

On the other side, LTL shipping means that your items are shipped with other pallets. This means that the truck may make multiple stops along the way, and your boxes may be
transferred between vehicles as necessary. As such, if you use our LTL services, we highly recommend labeling everything clearly so that it all stays together.

When Freight Shipping is the Right Choice

If you’re only moving a few boxes and furniture, it’s probably not a good idea to go with AM Moving freight services. However, if you’re moving a lot of stuff (i.e., a two-story home), you can save a lot by going this route. Yes, you will need to do more packing and lifting, but the savings can be well worth it, particularly if you’re moving out of state or cross-country.

People love our services

  • Cindy A.

    This was my first time to use AM Moving and I couldn’t be happier. I moved from Dallas to Wichita Falls Tx and Daryl and Johnny did a great job. They were so careful with all of my furniture and wrapped everything so well. They were on time and very expedient and professional. The best movers I’ve ever used/- thanks so much! Cindy A.
  • Kimberly Borman

    I had the best experience with AM Moving Company. They went out of their way to accommodate me and the needs for my situation. I had items in two different storage locations and they made it super easy to move in to my new home. Sergio, Jesus, and Felix were amazing. Very courteous and helpful. I would definitely recommend them.
  • Courtney Dickenson

    We hired AM Moving Company to help my husband and I move into our new house. They sent us Alexis, Moises, and Luis L and they were awesome! They worked very fast and efficient and were extremely professional and polite. Everything got from one house to the next safely with no problems whatsoever. It was the best experience by far that we've ever encountered with a moving company. We will be using them in the future for any moving needs and will be telling our friends and family!
  • Ian Roberts

    Excellent and reliable service.  There was a scheduling snafu, and they still scrambled to get a crew on a Sunday afternoon in 100 plus degrees.  I recommend them.
