Packing Your Freight

At ShippingDiscounts.com, we ship LTL freight for companies as well as individuals. One of the most common questions we get from individuals is, “How do I package my items for freight shipping?” Although we do not offer packaging services, here are some helpful videos from around the web that are useful if you’re packing your own freight.

Using boxes:

Building a custom crate:

Remember, when you have a choice of packing materials, it’s hard to go wrong with a box or crate. Pallets are useful, but not every item can be shipped on pallets. Sometimes you can even get a lower freight class and a lower overall price just by packaging your item in a box or crate rather than on a pallet! To avoid damage and maximize your money, we recommend boxes and crates.
