While many appraisers can put a monetary value on a piece of art or a family heirloom, it’s rather difficult to measure sentiment. Often times, sentiment is priceless.
For the past 20 years, Boston Pack and Ship has ensured the safe transport of artwork, antiques and family heirlooms by creating customized packaging for these delicate items. With the creation of its “arts” division, Boston Pack and Ship is offering an even greater level of services for art galleries, businesses and art collectors shipping fine arts and family heirlooms and antiques.
“Creating the customized packaging and crating to ship a piece of artwork is in itself an art and not every mover or shipping company has that specialty, hence the creation of our ‘art’ division,” said Joe Fell, co-owner of Boston Pack and Ship. “Over our 20 years in business, we’ve developed an expertise in building customized packages that few companies can match in addition to incorporating the latest technologies—like foam-in-place solutions—so that shipping one of these delicate pieces across the world is as safe as it going from one room in your home or business to another.”
As a small load specialist, Boston Pack and Ship specializes in shipments of less than 1,000 pounds—parameters that can cover a lot of different items. To safely ship such a wide range of parcels, Boston Pack and Ship creates customized double wall corrugated cardboard packaging for its retail and corporate customers. In addition, the Braintree-based company has an on-site workshop for it to build customized wood crates. Tailoring these containers exactly to the dimensions of the shipment dramatically reduces the possibility of damage during shipping—something of critical importance when transporting artwork and family heirlooms.
“Obviously, you’re going to insure your shipment, but money really isn’t much of a consolation when you’re talking about a piece of art or heirloom of irreplaceable personal value. You want your parcel there in the same condition as when you sent it,” continued Fell. “That’s why we go the extra mile to make sure that happens. We even come to your home or place of business to pick up your shipment so you don’t accidentally damage anything by trying to transport it to our shop.”
Boston Pack and Ship offers multiple U.S. shipping options including ground, air, delivery to a terminal for pickup or inside delivery. International options include air or ocean with door-to-door or door-to-port delivery. Full declared value is available on both domestic and international shipments. Pick-up of items to be packed and shipped for delivery is made by appointment.
