Can I estimate the weight of my shipment?

In some cases it may be impractical to actually weigh a heavy freight item (no access to a freight scale), so you may need to estimate the total weight of a shipment.  All shipments are subject to the carrier verifying the stated weight, so it is advisable to always over-estimate the weight in order to prevent additional charges being assessed by the carrier.  Make certain to include the packaging weight (pallets, containers, etc.) with the weight of the commodity being shipped as rates are based on the total weight of the shipment.
