Delicate or fragile items, such as artwork or antiques that have high monetary and sentimental value, will require a fragile goods courier. Packing these items correctly is the most important step towards preventing damage during transportation.
Glassware shipping is especially tricky and every piece needs to be carefully packed to prevent damage. Specialty boxes can be purchased for packing artwork, but these can be expensive. Constructing a safe packing box for your art is not difficult and the materials are easy to find.
When it comes to antique furniture delivery, selecting a quality transporter is as important as properly preparing your items. Give yourself plenty of time to package the piece, and clearly communicate your special handling needs to your transporter to ensure it is properly taken care of during the move.
Piano removal, as well as the transportation of pool or snooker tables, will require professional movers with specialised skills. Pianos and pool tables are very heavy and can be damaged if they are not moved properly. Unskilled movers also run the risk of personal injury.
If you have an antique or classic car or a motorcycle you should seriously consider working with an enclosed car transporters in order to ensure that your vehicle doesn't get damaged during transport.
