  • In the past, it’s been very difficult to get shipping quotes for furniture. I ran the customer service department for an outdoor furniture company for years and I’d have to get 3 separate freight quotes for every single shipment. I literally hand wrote the freight and faxed it over to the different carriers and just waited, sometimes up to 24 hours to hear back. I did this every single day for years. I’ve found a site that changed all of that for me. It’s been an amazing resource, especially with the freight quotes I’ve had to deal with.
