Packing Precious Purchases-Chandelier Shipping and Artwork Shipping

Posted on Tue, Oct 10, 2017

When doing research to find a company that  can pack and ship high value and delicate items, we recommend asking if the company you are looking at has experience shipping a chandelier. Since chandeliers come in so many different forms, you are able to ask a lot of packing questions. Does the company have experience packing and shipping delicate large and small items?  Do they offer pick up service? Can they tell you if a box will work for your shipment. or will a custom built crate be necessary? Have they asked you for the value of the items or items that  you are shipping?

Here are a few examples of the types of chandeliers that you may enquire about.

Crystal prism chandelier

Glass chandeliers

Candle chandeliers

Deer antler  chandeliers

Chandeliers with shades

Iron chandeliers

Murano  chandeliers

Each of these types of chandeliers will need to be handled differently and packed differently. A deer antler chandelier may need  to use less packing materials than a crystal prism chandelier.

So what if you are not looking at purchasing a chandelier, but are thinking about buying a high value  painting? Do you need packing and boxing for your picture?  If you have multiple pictures say in Houston pallet shipping inside of a custom built crate of pallet may work best for  you. 

The same questions apply for chandelier shipping and artwork shipping. How much experience does the company have building crates out of wood for shipping?  Do they know how to protect your new purchase by using the correct type of wood for your crate?  Do they plan to line the crate with one inch of Styrofoam all the way around the crate?

It may be a high value sign that you are shipping, and the same questions will apply.
