I'm looking to sell large metal shelf racks and cabinets for home and office.
Because they are large products that need special handling for delivery, so courier servies such as Fedex and UPS are out of the question along with Shipwire. These goods need to be delivered into the house.
Anyone can recommend a good logistics company that can do this special delivery based on their experiences?
Hi Harp. We ship our solid wood furniture ABF Freight with great success. Our products are expensive and heavy and smooth delivery is vital to our business. Our rep is amazing and the ABF people with whom we have dealt around the USA have been exceptional. We offer different levels of home delivery. You can find the details at http://www.standoutdesigns.com/pages/shipping-and-delivery.
In Shopify, we use weight-based rules that divide the country in two sections. We hired SineLabs to make us an App that generates our shipping docs in a few seconds via XML to ABF. We also can give customer transit time look ups.
If you shoot me an email (just use the link at the bottom left of any page on our site), I can get you in touch with our ABF rep who can get you in touch with your local rep. Better I think than just a cold call to the company.
I am not sure i would rule out FedEx, UPS for transporting heavy equipments. In fact you can opt for freight accounts of both FedEx and UPS and then use the Multi Carrier Shipping label app to ship freight items very effectively using the app.
