Contracting a truck is usually a good idea for shipments that weigh around 100 pounds. If one or two large items at that weight are being shipped, then they may exceed the minimum weight permitted by a courier or delivery service. Even if they do not, most delivery service companies are not well equipped to handle bulky or very heavy items, and dealing with one of them increases the chance of your shipment being damaged in transit.

If your shipment consists of numerous small items that add up to around 100 pounds, it’s easier to use a standard delivery service to get them all to their destination. However, without using a truck to deliver the items in bulk, there’s no guarantee they will all arrive at the same time. If you have shipping questions, call us at 866-678-4107.
