Air Freight in the United States almost always means deferred air freight — which means that it does not travel by air but by common carrier (a freight truck) for rapid transport to your destination city. Air Freight by real air is extremely expensive and it is usually not used for household goods.
Air freight is often less expensive than blanket-wrap full moving service. If you are moving a small amount of fairly square furniture, this method may save you money.
The skill in sending something by air freight is in the packaging. Handing your precious items over to a freight company to ship loose items is very risky. Unless your shipper is skilled in packaging your items so well that a gorilla can’t hurt them, don’t do it!
Sterling Van Lines’ personnel are expert at packaging items so that they arrive in the same condition as you entrusted them.
Small moves are moves involving 2,000 pounds or less – about 1-1/2 rooms of furniture.
Examples of small moves are:
