Shipping antiques is a task that requires an appropriate approach. Carriage of antique, valuable and unique items always involves higher risk.
You will only minimize it with the services of a company that cares about the highest standards of shipment security. At MBE we are here for you to choose the right solution and help you safely transport your antique from point A to point B.
We talk about antiquity when we are dealing with an old thing (hence the common name "old age"). However, it is usually impossible to determine whether a given thing is already an antique based solely on age. To be able to say this, one has to consider other factors, such as the aesthetic or artistic value of an object, its originality (authenticity) and degree of uniqueness. So if an old clock or piece of furniture meets most of the above criteria, we can conclude that it is already antique.
Collectors of antiques include:
- Daily items: tableware, dishes
- the elements of home furnishings: lamps, furniture, mirrors
- personal items: jewelry, coins
How do you safely send antiques by courier?
Nowadays, the antiques market has moved to the Internet to a large extent. Both private collectors and owners of auction houses are willing to use this form of buying and selling antiques. However, we can only talk about a fully successful transaction once the purchased furniture or porcelain reaches the recipient safely. To make this happen select the highest level of courier services.
MBE has been specializing in the transport of non-standard items - of non-standard dimensions or high value for years. We are not afraid of challenges, therefore - which is quite an exception among the offers for transport services - we also organize safe shipment of antiques.
Playing with foil, tape and scissors is not your fairy tale? You don't have to deal with it - our employee will pack and secure every unusual item to be shipped so that it reaches the indicated address intact. Protecting your shipment in transport is our top priority.
Safety above all
The always-supervised. It is worth remembering that despite all efforts made to prepare the antiquity for safe shipment, a lot of unforeseen and supplier-independent things can happen in transport. That is why we have prepared a unique solution for insurance of value shipment - MBE SafeValue, starting from the item itself, through the cost of its packing to the shipping price.
This unique solution includes coverage of the shipment at every stage - from packing, through transport to delivery to the indicated address.
