When shipping marble furniture, there are a few important things to consider. First and foremost if it the marble can be removed from the piece of furniture. You need to look for a company that has the capability to remove the marble. They also must have the ability to custom build a crate to place the marble in for shipping. Below we have listed some standard guidelines for crating the marble.
Depending on the size and fragility of the piece the crater should use up to 3 inches of Styrofoam on the bottom of the crate and 1-2 inches of Styrofoam on the sides and top. Before putting the piece into the crate, make sure that the marble has double or triple bubble surrounding it.
The crate should be closed with staples on the bottom and screws should be put on the top for easy opening.
Metal banding should be secured around the crate.
The company that you choose to crate your marble should offer both on site crating as well as crating at their facility. The company should have a preferred list of shipping companies, as well as preferred movers for your delicate marble. The company needs to offer valuation protection for your marble piece.
