    Freight Services

    Are you all tired of paying high freight prices on your LTL and TL shipments? If you have say 300 lbs you want to ship and have a way to put on a pallet and attach the shipment to the pallet I may be able to save you a few dollars. Of course the more weight you ship the cheaper the cost per pound. If you would like a quote you can email me at gorven@comcast.net or call me at 814-443-6389.

    I have been ask in many conversations what information do I need to get a quote? So Below is the information that I need to give a accurate quote.

    1. Origin Zipcode and Destination Zipcode

    2. Weight if you have it if not a close estimate will get you a idea of cost.

    3. Commercial or Residential Address

    4. If commercial address do you have a dock or a forklift if not no problem we send a liftgate equipped trailer

    5 If residential is there easy access to your house?

    6. Residential needing a liftgate is the highest rated freight in the LTL shipping business. My suggestion if possible is load on your truck or trailer and take to the trucking companies loading dock. Doing that gives the same rate as a commercial address with loading dock.

    7. Dimensions of Pallet



    When ready to ship I will need.

    1. Your address

    2. Telephone Number

    3. Email Address to send BOL and Address labels too

    4. All destination info

    I can do freight loads from all 50 states. However Alaska and Hawaii is a little more expensive but is handled in the same way as on the mainland door to door service.

    I have used Terry's services and am extremely pleased. Many people don't have experience with shipping freight, also if you use the freight account of a company, this isn't the business they are in. If you want someone looking out for your shipment, watching it along the way, dealing with you one on one, and also provide great rates, Terry is your guy.

    I've been talking to Terry for a while now and finally had the opportunity to utilize his services. He is great to deal with, professional, courteous and fantastic rates! If you're not using Terry, you're paying too much!

    We just completed our first transaction with Terry and were extremely pleased with his service. He scheduled pickup for the next day with a liftgate - the truck showed up and they loaded the pallet up. We were able to track the package as it went to its destination and everything went very well. It's unbelievably easy to ship pallets through him.

    Thanks Terry!

    Terry is just flat-out awesome. He's a pro, he's a total pleasure to work with, and his prices leave everybody else in the dust. I actually had another broker tell me it was "impossible" to get the rate Terry quoted me on a haul.

    You're not going to find anyone like Terry anywhere else. He's not here to make a profit off you; he's here to provide a service and help you out. This is a man with over 30 years of experience in the freight business, and he's offering to help us get our pallets wherever they need to go at the best "impossible" price.

    Terry, thank you for your impeccable service, for the extra effort you put in when our pickup got complicated, and for basically making me feel as if I won the shipping lottery. :-D I'm still chuckling because that other broker swore the quote you gave me had to be a mistake.
