Your freight that needs special care as it is in transit is safe with us.

Padded van service eliminates the need for extensive packaging in many situations.
Velvet Glove Service is an add on that can be paired with padded van service, to include inside pick up and inside delivery. You don’t need a shipping & receiving department; you need only have your product ready to ship.
When customers need the transit of their goods to be handled with extra care and sensitivity, padded van service is the solution of choice. This is a premium service designed to transport electronics, furniture, machinery and other fragile commodities.
This keeps damage, loss and mis-shipping to a minimum. If you are shipping uncrated displays and/or machines, padded van is the ONLY way to ship. All shipments are blanket-wrapped and ride in air-cushioned trailers. Vans will guarantee delivery of your shipment on time and in good condition.
Frequently Asked Questions

Padded vans are outfitted with up to 150 moving blankets, several straps, several load bars, most with lift gates, and other equipment for cargo handling.
Will LDK padded van drivers wrap and secure freight?
LDK drivers either with the help of a local crew, or on their own if shipper is loading will pad wrap and secure all high value items for transport. Our drivers are experienced and well versed in handling high value items.
What shipping option is best for me?
An experienced LDK team member can help you decide what is best, but in general lower value, sturdy, well packed items can ship common carrier LTL or partial standard truckload and delicate, high value items (whether packed or unpacked) would require a padded van or dedicated option.
