Here at Value Truck, we make shipping to and fro to Texas easier than ever before. We offer both FTL and LTL freight services at an affordable price. However, many of our customers in Texas call us and ask different questions about shipping their freight. Here are some of the frequently asked questions they ask us.
What is your service area?
We provide shipping service in Texas or anywhere else in the United States of America, Mexico, and Canada. Whether you’ve got a piece of machinery weighing 100,000 pounds or a light load consisting of a few pallets, we’ve got you covered! No shipping project is too big or small for us.
What kinds of items can you transport?
As a full-service logistics company in Texas, we’re pleased to help you ship anything that complies with the law. We tailor our FTL and LTL freight shipment to your specifications, from perishables to luxury goods. We have you covered if you need shipping service.
What’s the difference between full truckload (FTL) and less-than-truckload (LTL)?
FTL shipping is when your freight occupies all the space in the truck, while LTL shipping is when your load needs a portion of the truck space. FTL trucking is ideal for larger shipments or temperature-sensitive and fragile freight. In contrast, LTL trucking doesn’t require specialized care and is a cost-effective shipping option for small to medium-sized cargo.
What’s the difference between parcel and freight?
Freight is any shipment that weighs 150 pounds or more and is palletized, boxed or crated. Parcel shipments are small, and lightweight shipments typically weigh less than 75 pounds. However, most parcel carriers will allow you to ship items up to 150 pounds.
How much does it cost to ship freight in Texas?
Knowing how much it will cost you to ship freight in Texas can be challenging. Regardless of what you’re shipping in Texas, the factors below will help you determine your rate:

How should I package my items?
The items you want to ship will determine your packaging. We recommend using shipping crates, containers, or boxes. For shipping heavier items, we suggest double boxing. It’s vital to seal all closures, cushion the contents, and label each item with the right information. We’ll establish the best package for your cargo during the loading process, and we’ll place everything in the truck securely and safely.
How fast can you deliver my package?
We offer same-day and next-day delivery to fit your preferences. Depending on your destination, you can also get your package delivered in one week. We’ll try our best to get your packages done on time whenever you need your packages delivered.
