When you need to ship an elegant Georgian sideboard, a heavy Highboy, or other piece of antique furniture, it’s a big job. You want to be sure that your furniture makes it to its destination intact and undamaged. At the same time, lots of antique furniture is really heavy and awkardly shaped. It’s not the easiest thing in the world to handle. Here are three things you need to know about shipping antique furniture:
Custom Crating Protects Antique Furniture Best
Protecting antique furniture means ensuring the structural integrity and finish or patina remains intact. This means your furniture needs to be kept safe from knocks, drops and bumps while it’s in transit. Additionally, it needs protection from chemicals, weather, and electric shock – all of which can ruin fine antique furniture. Custom crating is the answer. Specially designed and built wooden shipping crates are the strongest, most cost-effective way to protect your fine antique furniture. We’ve been building high quality custom shipping crates for over 20 years. See what a difference experience makes.

Save Money By Choosing a Small Move Company
