Why You Should Choose an International Shipper Who Specializes in Antiques (and not a Regular Shipper)
When shipping antiques you must have safe and secure transportation of fragile and valuable goods:
- Custom crating and packaging in protective materials
- Exploration of the best method to transport your goods
- Detailed documentation for customs and VAT paperwork concerning the export and import documentation necessary for your goods, including Certificates of Origin and an itemized, detailed packing list including descriptions and weights using the international coding system
- Understanding of fumigation requirements of your container
- Insurance for the shipped goods from door-to-door
- Expertise on international exporting and importing antiques including taxes and duties
- Monitoring and communications on the status of your shipment
- Relationships with international shipping regulatory agencies and a network of shippers
- they are experts at packing fragile and valuable goods
- they understand the cost/benefits of transport by land versus sea versus air
- they’re experienced in the detailed and specific documentation required for exporting and importing antiques
- they have worked with international shipping government regulatory offices in other countries
- they have relationships with transport companies in other countries
- they are specialists in shipping logistics and can accurately monitor and report shipment status
