Shipping or Moving on a Budget?

Busfreighter.com is an authorized reseller of Greyhound Package (GPX) services, which gives Busfreighter.com customers access to shipping rates that can’t be beat. And there are opportunities for even greater savings if you use our self-service shipment option, where packages are dropped off and picked up at Greyhound bus locations across the country.

Shipping or Moving Several Packages?

Conventional wisdom suggests the more packages you ship, the more you’ll pay. Not so with Busfreighter.com. Using our service, the more you ship, the more you save - up to 60% savings when shipping six or more boxes. Use our Instant Quote & Ordering tool for a quick and specific estimate:

  • Enter in the number of packages you want to ship
  • Enter the total weight of your shipment
  • Enter the start and end locations by city or by zip code
  • Get your estimated cost

Then compare your estimate to other shipping options - we’re confident you’ll love the Busfreighter.com advantage.

Shipping Oddly-Sized or Heavy Packages?

Each package shipped through Busfreighter.com with GPX can weigh a maximum of 100 lbs. As the GPX network is serviced via the cargo areas on 1,100 Greyhound buses across the country, size restrictions are dictated by the space available: 29-inches by 47-inches by 82-inches. This is roughly 2.5 ft x 4 ft x 6.5 ft. Shipping something that big via one of the national carriers may cost you two or three times as much as the rate you’ll find at Busfreighter.com. And you have the option of having that big item shipped to a drop-off location or the nearest bus terminal or to your door.

When to Look Elsewhere

If budget is the biggest priority for your shipment, give us a try! However, while Busfreighter.com can serve a wide variety of shipping needs, we know we may not be the best option for every kind of shipment.

As a “space available” shipper, we typically cannot guarantee a specific delivery date. Cross country shipments are generally 10-14 business days door-to-door and shipments of less than 2,000 miles generally take three to seven business days. And that bus space we use for shipments can be a challenging environment for fragile items, especially those packed with less than the utmost care. Before you order our services, make sure our services are right for your shipment.

Busfreighter.com – Still the Best Kept Secret in Shipping

The more you ship, the more you save! Together, Busfreighter.com and GPX have nearly 30 years combined experience facilitating package shipments via a nationwide bus network.
