“What I love about this rocking chair is that it was actually made here in Boston,” Terri said. “The maker’s mark is 1918, which doesn’t sound terribly old – but when you stop to think about it, that’s at the very end of World War One. Before so many things we take for granted. I think about how many grandmothers must have sat in this chair with little babies. It makes me smile. That’s why I’m a little anxious about having it shipped to our summer home in Florida.”
Shipping antique furniture and other fragile household items is a specialized service requiring expert level knowledge. These items are truly irreplaceable. One of a kind items, whether they’re antiques, artworks, or similarly precious, deserve an extra level of care and protection when being shipped.
This means custom crating. In custom crating, a wooden shipping crate is literally built to order specifically for your piece of antique furniture and the packing material needed to protect it. These crates are durable, secure, and provide the ultimate level of protection for fragile furniture.
Working with an expert packing and shipping service in Boston, you enjoy fully custom crating. This means crates can be built to achieve cost-effectiveness while protecting your item. Crates are built to the specifications required by freight and shipping companies. Custom crates help moving companies efficiently move your items without damaging them.
Because each custom crate is built to order, it’s good to allow time for the process in your schedule. The best shipping store in Boston can often provide same day service for single items, but if you’re shipping an entire room or household full of furniture, call to schedule ahead of time. Custom crating and shipping services can be provided to anyone who needs to ship out the entire contents of an estate.
