What You Need to Know About Cross-Country Shipping

  • How long should I expect the move to take? A typical cross-country move should take less than a week. Generally, it takes between two and five business days, depending on how far your destination is. It’s good to also understand unforeseen circumstances such as holiday or weather delays.
  • How much will cross-country shipping cost? The cost of your cross-country move will depend on the size of your shipment, the weight of your shipment, the distance traveled and whether you need any additional services.

How to ship freight cross-country?

GoShip.com’s advanced technology and strong partnerships allow us to worry out of cross-country shipping. However, there are some simple details you should remember to make your experience even easier. For example:

Be accurate

When you provide us with the most accurate information about the destination, dimensions, and weight of your packages, we’ll be able to select the shipping options that work best for you. We’ll also be able to help you avoid delays and unexpected cost increases that can occur when information about the shipment isn’t accurate.

Pack properly

Choosing the correct container and packing materials are vital for ensuring your items arrive safely and undamaged. It’s also important to practice proper packaging procedures such as minimizing empty space inside cartons, providing adequate cushioning inside containers, and distributing weight evenly on a pallet.

Label everything

To help eliminate confusion during shipping, always check that each of your packages or items is properly labeled. That means removing any old labels on cartons you’re re-using and packing duplicate labels inside the packages for more protection against confusion.

Details matter

There’s no such thing as too much information when it comes to giving us instructions for your move. Be sure to provide us with exact addresses for the origin and destination of your items, as well as any special instructions and contact information.   Don’t forget to present your GoShip.com Bill of Lading to your driver to ensure accurate billing an online delivery.
