Antiques transportation

Antiques are part of one of the more difficult category of cargos – Fragile Goods. That’s because the antiques are quite breakable and prone to damages on the road. While talking about antiques, you have to remember the matter of worth, as all of the antiques are really costly cargo. Therefore in the eyes of a future hauler antiques can be not just tricky but also potentially problematic load (almost always the client looks for some kind of insurance should anything happen to the cargo). Of course it will most likely have an impact on the cost of transportation. Also you will probably receive not as many quotes as you’d probably receive when looking for e.g. car shipment, however you don’t have to worry about thst – with fragile goods transportation smaller amount of quotes usually have nothing to do with their quality. The offers you will receive, will be from haulers who know how to transport antiques safely.

What items you’ll find in the Antiques category? Wide variety of items that are of great value due to its age. By “antiques” we often mean really ancient furniture that grew really valuable over the years. What is the difference between modern furniture shipment and antiques shipment?

Firstly, you should bear in mind the materials that they were made from. You must remember, that present-day beds and tables are made with the matter of shipment in mind. Sofas, beds and bookshelves often be transported thousands of kilometers from the factory to the store and then to the client’s place. That’s why it is common that they are made from strong materials that must be resistant to being transported even on long routes. With antiques it’s quite the opposite. The antique furniture were made locally, and therefore there wasn’t the need to ship the furniture hundreds of miles. Therefore manufacturers could make them  much more intricately and using more fragile materials.

It’s quite a challenge for modern shipment as well as for antiques owners – what is the best way to prepare antiques for transportation and how to without problems ship cargos that are that fragile and of considerable worth. With extreme caution, obviously. Be sure to secure all the elements protruding from the main shape of the item using layers of bubble foil. If you are transporting antiques in a cardboard, don’t forget to use extra layers of foam peanuts – they will eliminate any vibrations during shipment, which could be harmful for your cargo.

Whenever planning shipment of antique furniture there is one last thing to remember – almost all of antiques are not designed to be disassembled without damaging them and therefore should be transported in one piece. This affects the choice of a proper vehicle, as not every delivery van will be able to safely fit an antique furniture set.

As stated before, antiques are a costly load, and that’s the reason you should look for a transport provider that has carrier liability insurance. This will ensure you receive compensation should something happen to your antiques during transportation. Naturally it would be best to find a hauler that has at least some experience with transporting antiques, because when it comes to fragile cargos, professional transport provider’s knowledge cannot be overestimated.
