Small business delivery solutions for oversized product delivery. A-Zip Moving & Cartage

Can a Moving Company Deliver Cartage or Oversized Items?

How do you deliver items too large for a parcel service but too few or lightweight for a transport shipper? A-Zip Moving & Cartage Inc has provided local and long-distance shipping and delivery services throughout Ontario since 1949, shortly after WW2, when the lucky came home, and we all went shopping.  


A familiar chain of events occurs when people are restricted, as they were during a six-year-long world war or, although not comparable, a one and a half year (and counting) worldwide pandemic. It seems all we want to do is let loose and go on a spending spree. Read our article ‘A History of One of the Oldest Moving Companies in London Ontario’

Small businesses account for over 97% of Canadian companies, and with an exodus to online exposure, it is easier now for you to reach potential clients even farther outside your place of manufacture. 


With any number of choices of transportation modes available for the delivery of your products, it may be advantageous to use a traditional mover for your oversized items or products that do not require cross-border shipping.


Movers typically transfer residential clients’ belongings, and transportation shippers typically move large shipments. However, at least one residential mover is equipped with enough staff to ship and deliver goods, similar to a light transportation shipper. And that may be these economics that benefits your small business.


How can a small business or craft industry and a local mover work together? 

What will you do when your gizmo is both too big and too small for a parcel service and a transport shipper? Is there a just right shipping service that will move a few pieces more inexpensively to a client or retailer 50, 100, or 200 kilometres away than standard delivery services?

  • A-Zip Moving & Cartage employs a hydraulic liftgate to help with your heavier items, even motorcycles.
  • Please contact us with details of the pieces or products you would like moved.
  • Our drivers and movers are cautious with any item under our supervision. However, it is judicious to inspect or photograph your products before they are loaded onto the truck.
  • We make regular long-distance moves throughout Ontario.

A mover will deliver your loose items but cannot be responsible for bumps and bruises received during the shipping of the unprotected items. Even if it is a soft furniture product, it is always best to wrap its edges securely in cardboard and plastic wrap to avoid rub marks while also covering it with a blanket. 

Alternatively, we effectively provide packing services with a bit of pre-communication and organization required to ensure it all happens with your shipping or delivery timeframe.

How can a packrat and a local mover work together? 

There is no time like the present unless you recognize yourself as a packrat, and then there is always tomorrow to tackle that downsizing.

An alternative to making the big decision to get rid of it all is to have it shuffled to a storage location.

It’s alright, we’ve seen it all, and we’ve probably seen some we shouldn’t have seen. Putting your things in a different location may help you decide you don’t need them at all.
