You may have heard that you can ship your freight through a Greyhound bus and thought it was nothing more than a myth, a legend, a hoax created by the bigwigs of Greyhound to stir up more business. But alas, the rumors are true.
But wouldn’t you rather trust your possessions with a real shipping company?
Like mom and dad always said, you get what you pay for.
At first glance, bus shipping might seem like the more economical approach. But that’s before you take multiple factors into place.
With bus shipping, you still have to get your freight to and from the actual bus terminal. If you don’t have a truck, this could pose a problem. You could either rent one or ask a friend with a truck for a favor. Either way, it’s an extra step that’s going to cost you time and money.
Tracking is not the most brag-worthy feature that bus shipping can offer. Often, your shipment will end up missing, damaged or stolen, with no explanation given. There’s always the option for insurance but they cap it off at $300 – not much if you’re shipping a valuable item.
