Keep in mind that in most cases the only items of food that you could ship would be canned goods. You are paying by the space that you occupy so its not practical to send upholstered furniture and mattresses. Wood furniture and clothing and such are usually ok. So if possible if you can estimate the area that your goods occupied before calling it would save time. When estimating imagine you are putting all of the items in a large box so you would usually measure the longest item to get length and add few inches as a starting point. You would pack items in the furniture to save on room. weight is usually not important unless you are shipping books or tools. Good luck and Thank You Tom
