Personal Effects Definition
Personal effects in transport include your personal or household items, including jewelry, clothing, and furniture. Whether you are moving abroad permanently or temporarily or you are returning home, you want to ensure that your permanent effects arrive at the destination timely, safely, and conveniently.
Preparing your Personal Effects for Shipping
Proper packaging is essential during shipping. Unless your items are being shipped independently or as a full container or full truckload (FTL), they are most commonly shipped alongside other commodities as less than truckload or as batches. Suffice to say, your items will be handled by numerous hands as they are sorted and consolidated for further transportation.
Please note that insufficient packaging and poor quality packages are the common cause of losses and damage when shipping personal effects. Besides, most carriers can only arrange for personal effects freight insurance for items that are well packaged. At Heavy Equipment, we will go the extra mile of labeling your freight to prevent unnecessary mixed ups and expensive losses.
