We understand the need for heightened security in the nation’s airports. What’s not as understandable, especially for the flying public, is the phenomenon of airline baggage theft. For years now, passengers have been reporting the loss of jewelry, high tech items such as iPads and computers, valuable clothing, irreplaceable artwork and more. Other items weren’t stolen, just vandalized – wrecked so the owners can no longer enjoy them. In many cases, the passengers have no effective means of recourse.
What does that mean to you, the traveler, when you’re thinking about traveling with valuable items? We’re always advised to pack these items as carry-ons, but that’s not always possible or practical. For the ultimate in peace of mind, consider shipping your possessions rather than flying with them. As your Boston shipping specialist, we’re ready and prepared to safely and securely ship your jewelry, artwork, computers, or other valuable items. Collectibles, antiques, fine books: we’ve shipped all of these items and have a proven track record for excellence and attention to detail.
Custom crating services ensure your items are protected against breakage. We work with only the most reliable, trusted freight personnel. Over $31 billion dollars worth of valuables have disappeared from this nation’s airports. That’s just unacceptable. Why should you have to worry about your valuable possessions arriving safely after you’ve trusted them into the custody of airline personnel?
Fixing this situation is going to take a significant amount of effort on the part of the airlines and TSA personnel. While we’re waiting for this to happen, it’s both reasonable and prudent to consider alternative arrangements when you’re traveling with high-value items. This is particularly true if the items are small and easily concealed, as jewelry and electronics often are. Having your Boston shipping store package and ship these items for you is the safer option. Great to know after trade shows, conventions, industry events, or buying trips.
