There is a big difference shipping freight via Commercial Transport and using a Moving Service.
The first difference is scope of service. In contrast to "movers" Commercial transport companies (like ShipCanada)
do not physically touch your freight. (beyond moving it in and out of the truck) While this results in significantly cheaper
shipping rates, it also means that you will have some work to do to prepare your shipment for transport.
