With the loss of a loved one, houses and apartments are usually taken apart.
While families choose to donate many items, some, there are usually many sentimental items that are to be distributed both across the United States and worldwide.
If you are the individual handling the delivery of the furniture and delicate items like art work and antiques, we recommend asking a few pertinent questions of your shipping company.
Do you have a person answer the phone who can answer my questions?
How long have you been in business?
If you are a franchise, how long have you owned the franchise?
Do you offer options for shipping?
Is freight service available for furniture, as well as a moving service?
Do you offer pick up service?
Can you value the items while they are being shipped?
Do you call ahead of time to arrange the drop off of the items?
Do you have experience moving antiques?
Do you have experience moving furniture?
Do you have experience shipping art work and sculpture?
Can you custom build boxes or crates for high value items?
Can you deliver to all parts of the United States?

These are just a few of the questions we recommend asking when searching for a company to ship items from an estate.
