The items will then be palletized, shrink-wrapped, and banded. For antiques, fragile and expensive items, we recommend custom built wooden crates instead of cardboard. Items will be released at $0.10 per pound unless otherwise stated. Additional insurance coverage is available for a nominal fee.

Please, inquire with our office for a residential delivery quote. Insurance coverage for your shipment is $0.10 per pound. Additional insurance may be purchased at $5 per $100 of declared value.
