Shipping Antiques? Shipping Company in Houston has Advice

Posted on Thu, Feb 14, 2013

 

Antique shipping and moving is a very specialized service. When you want to move just a small amount of antique furniture, you can have it custom boxed or crated and then freighted.

Some pieces of antique furniture can go on a pallet, surrounding the furniture with protection and stretch wrap, and shipping the furniture via truck to its new city.

Some pieces will need to be custom crated. The crate will need to be built specifically to fit your antique.

The crating company should have years of experience both handling and valuing antiques. Remember: every crate will need to be built to specifically fit your individual item.

If you have many pieces of antique furniture you may use a special mover that specializes in moving antiques.

Make sure they know how to properly pack and prepare the furniture for your move. Some of it may be blanket wrapped, some of it may be wrapped in flexible cardboard and some may need to be crated for the move.

You will want to make sure that you have a current appraisal before valuing the antique for shipping.

If you are shipping antique sculptures or art work, look for a firm that specializes in packing and crating high value items from one city to another.

Finding a company that can offer varied services when shipping antiques will help save you money. You want to make sure that your antiques arrive in pristine condition.

If you are shipping an antique internationally, you need to look for a company that has experience. While various countries have specific requirements for antiques, any piece valued at greater than $2500 will need a Schedule B number.

We have listed below countries that we ship to in general. If you have any questions about shipping antiques, or worldwide shipping please feel free to contact us at 713 266 1450.
