What Is Estate Shipping?
Estate shipping handles shipments to and from estate sales or auctions, whether they are residential or commercial. This means arranging shipments of family heirlooms and antiques.
How Should You Prepare Your Estate?
All estate items being shipped should be properly secured and packaged in order to prevent any damage from occurring. Estate shipping often entails moving fragile items, which may require extra preventative packing measures. Freight should be packaged, crated, or stacked and secured onto pallets with banding, shrink-wrap, or breakaway adhesive. Improper packaging may decrease or nullify the carrier’s liability for damage claim or loss. Proper and secure packing is the most guaranteed method to prevent damage. If you have any questions, talk to one of our expert freight agents.
