When should I consider a freight company for my move?

When your household move is small and long distance, or if you're shipping a dining room set or something of that nature. If your load is either large or local, the cost savings disappear.

Can I really save a lot using a freight company to move?

Honest answer: it depends on. Freight service is cheaper (and faster) on a long-distance small move or shipment. But standard freight service is curb-to-curb, so you have to do the packing and loading, then the unpacking and unloading. (Or hire others to do it at each end, which can wipe out your savings.) Always compare freight service to a small move specialist before making a decision.

Are there any household goods I can't ship with a freight company?

You can ship almost anything with a freight company. Furniture, clothes, appliances, the family pet. There's really only one requirement when it comes to shipping household goods with freight companies: everything must be in boxes, crates, or strapped to a pallet.
