We give you low discount pricing from national carriers, and we handle all scheduling, paperwork and details.
We began by shipping boxed and crated items. Later we expanded our services to include unpacked items like furniture and other household goods. We are licensed and bonded (USDOT Number: 517872) and we emphasize personal service, which has created a lot of happy customers. We?re very proud of that.

Packing and shipping tips and guidelines : Motor freight and air freight service :- One-man pickup and delivery, curb-to-curb service. The shipment must be boxed, crated or palletized. Residential pickup available at additional cost. Multiple items, even if shrink-wrapped on a pallet, must each be clearly labeled. Because of packing and commercial location pickup requirements, standard motor freight is most often used by mailing and parcel centers and other professionals. Insurance against damage may be unavailable from TSI if shipment is not professionally packaged. Multiple layers provide the best protection. For example, double box the item and place bubble wrap or styrofoam in between layers. As a rule, the more cardboard, bubble wrap, styrofoam, crumpled paper or tissue you use, the better. Van line service :- Usually for large bulky items such as furniture, copiers, big screen TVs, large appliances, home exercise equipment, etc. Two-man, indoor pickup and delivery. Carrier prepares larger items for shipment. This includes most furniture, large appliances, exercise equipment, and similar items. Smaller items must be packaged by you. For example: Glass shelves, doors, and tabletops, if removable Lamps (package shades separately) Mirrors Artwork Electronics, such as stereos and computers (it is not necessary to box televisions) Small appliances, tools, or other "loose" items When packing these kinds of smaller items, multiple layers provide the best protection. For example, wrap the item in bubble wrap and cardboard. As a rule, the more cardboard, bubble wrap, styrofoam, crumpled paper or tissue you use, the better. Heavy corrugated cardboard is preferred. You can usually buy boxes specially designed for items like pictures or lamps at mail and parcel centers. If necessary you can create your own box(es) with corrugated cardboard, or by "telescoping" multiple boxes. Be sure to use liberal amounts of bubble wrap or other packing material and secure the cardboard with packing tape, not another kind of tape.
