“There are a lot of people who really enjoy the older clocks,” Lisa said. “And everyday I thank God for those people, because they keep me in business.” Lisa repairs, restores, and refurbishes antique clocks. She also sells collectible clocks. She has customers all over the world. “That’s great,” she said, “but it’s also a problem, because I have to ship these clocks. And when someone pays thousands of dollars for a clock, they want to know it’s going to reach them in perfect condition.”
“I’m the expert on clocks,” she said. “And I turn to the shipping experts to make sure my customers get their clocks with no problem.” Custom packing and shipping for delicate and fragile items is what we do best. With over 30 years experience, we know how to cushion and secure items within their shipping cartons so they’re absolutely protected while they’re in transit. Custom packing can include the use of custom cardboard shipping cartons, or in the case of especially high value, fragile items, custom wooden shipping crates.
When you’re choosing a Boston shipping company for custom packing and shipping your delicate and fragile items, there are a few signs you’ll want to watch for. The first is reliability. This is Boston – new businesses open all of the time, and that’s great! But do you really want to trust your valuable, fragile items to an inexperienced company? Choose a company that’s been around for a while. Ask them about their experience with fragile items, and how they’d plan to ship your items safely. If you see a deer-in-the-headlights look of fear in their eyes, keep searching: you haven’t found the right shipping company yet.
Another thing you’ll want to ask about is insurance and tracking options. When you’re shipping valuable items, you want to know you’re covered. There are several types of insurance coverage available to you, depending on which freight carrier you’re using. If you’re shipping items internationally, you also need to be sure that all of the customs paperwork is handled properly.
