What You Need To Know About Freight Delivery
When a package is too heavy or too big to ship via United States Post Office or Fed Ex (our other shipping company), it is shipped through a Freight Carrier. This video was created by ShoppersChoice.com to assist our customers who are not familiar with or who have never had a package delivered via Freight Carrier and is a great way for them to experience what it's like to get a shipment at home.
Always remember, if you have any issues or just need questions answered, we are just a phone call away at 877-743-2269.
