Shipping Timeless Antique Treasures Is an Art

January 20th, 2016 by

Extra attention to detail is warranted when moving prized and valuable possessions such as antiques. Whether moving an antique from an old home to a new home or shipping it to its new owner, it’s important to look for expertise to ensure that the item is packed securely and protected from accidental damage or breakage.

When preparing to move a priceless antique, expert packing and shipping advice should be sought. “We always encourage the antique owner or custodian to secure an appraisal of the item before it is packed and shipped,” says Phil DeLange, owner of Pak Mail Beachside. “We also advise them to take photographs or videos of the item, which may come in handy if the need arises for restoration. Also, any registration numbers or signatures should be noted for future reference.”

Pak Mail has mastered the art of handling, packaging and transporting the most fragile, precious, awkward and large shipments.
