Please contact us at (903) 561-8208 forblanket wrap or freight shipping quotes (lower 48 states only).We use reputable freight shippers and blanket wrap servicesin our area andwillmake all arrangements for packing, scheduling and delivery. There are two options:
Blanket Wrap Shipping – This is the preferred method if you are not in a hurry. We use reputable companies that specialize in transporting antique furniture, art and collectibles. Estimated delivery for this service is 3-5 weeks. This quote will include shipping, blanket wrap (in lieu of crating), insurance, unwrapping and full setup in your home or office. The service will call you to set up a delivery appointment that is convenient for you.
Freight Shipping (by UPS, SouthEastern Freight Lines or YRC) – This is the quicker method. Estimated delivery is 10-14 business days, depending on your location (we are in Texas). The quote will include all charges for shipping, crating/packing and insurance. The disadvantage is that freight shipping companies will not allow employees to enter a business or residence or uncrate the item. Freight items are delivered curbside, and buyer is responsible for moving inside and uncrating. To save the residential delivery charge, you may choose to pick the item up at a freight terminal in your area. The freight company will call you to set up a delivery appointment that is convenient for you.
We are happy to obtain quotes for either or both options to compare costs and obtain the best service for your delivery. Please contact us at (903) 561-8208 for further details regarding shipping options.
