Antiques transportation

Antiques are included in one of the more tricky section of loads – Fragile Goods. That’s because the antiques are really delicate and prone to damages during transportation. When it comes to antiques, there is also the matter of value, as all of the antiques are very valuable cargo. Therefore in the eyes of a possible hauler antiques are not only tricky but also potentially problematic cargo (almost always the client looks for some form of guarantee in case something happen to the cargo). Needless to say it will most likely affect the price of shipment. Futhermore you will probably receive less quotes than you’d probably get while searching for let’s say motorcycle transportation, however you don’t have to worry about thst – in this particular case smaller amount of quotes usually have nothing to do with their professionalism. The offers you will receive, will be made by haulers that have expert knowledge on how to transport antiques safely.

What items belong in the Antiques category? Wide variety of items that are of considerable worth due to its age. When talking about “antiques” we often mean very ancient wardrobes, tables, chairs and so on which value grew considerably over the years. Is there any difference comparing modern furniture shipment and antiques transportation?

Firstly, you should bear in mind what were used to make them. You must remember, that present-day beds and tables are already designed with their transportation in mind. Sofas, chairs and tables often be transported many miles between the factory and the store and then to the client’s place. So it’s natural for them to be made from strong materials that must be resistant to being shipped from place to place. With antiques it’s quite the opposite. The antique tables and wardrobes were made locally, and therefore there was rarely any reason to ship the furniture on longer routes. That’s why they could be made  without worrying about their endurance as well as using more fragile materials.

It can be challenging for modern transportation and for antiques owners – how to best secure antiques for shipment and how to without problems ship items which are that fragile and valuable. With extreme caution, obviously. Be sure to secure every part that stands apart from the main shape of the item using some bubble wrap. When shipping antiques in a cardboard, remember to use extra layers of foam peanuts – they are meant to absorb any tremors on the road, which could be harmful for your load.

Whenever planning transportation of antique furniture there is one more thing to remember – most of them are not designed to be disassembled without damaging them and that’s why they should be shipped as a whole. That considerably narrows down the list of available transporting vehicles, as not all of the transporting vehicles will be able to safely fit an antique furniture set.

As mentioned in previous paragraphs, antiques are an expensive cargo, and that’s why it’s smart to search for a transport provider that has carrier liability insurance. This will ensure you receive compensation should anything happen to your antiques during shipment. Naturally it’s best to look for a hauler that has at least some experience with shipping antiques, as with delicate cargos, expert transport provider’s know-how is truly invaluable.
