Starter Guide to Shipping Furniture (and other big stuff!)

One of the most intimidating aspects of selling furniture online is shipping the pieces after they have sold. We have found a super easy method, that everyone- businesses and individuals a like- has access to: Greyhound Shipping!

Yep! They don't just move people around on those buses- they transport packages too.

Here are the basic guidelines:

-Greyhound ships within the continental US.

-You have to pack it yourself (We'll be adding another guide about how to pack furniture to ship)

-It has to be under 100lbs (we have some tricks for bigger pieces!)

-It has to be under 82 inches long, 47 inches wide, and 30 inches tall

-If you're an individual, the value of an item has to be under $300 (if you want it insured).

-If you get a business account, the value of an item has to be under $1000 (if you want it insured).

-If you're an individual, you have to drop the package off and have it picked up at a Greyhound Station.

-If you're a business, you can pay an extra fee to have a courier pick up your package at your home or place of business. And you can also have them deliver to a home or business on the receiving end.

-Yes, they insure the packages.

-It usually takes less than 10 business days to arrive.
