WE DO NOT CHARGE EXTRA FOR LABOR, HANDLING OR MATERIALS COSTS. However, we do take extreme extra care when packing, and china, glass and fragile items are wrapped in extensive bubble wrap, peanuts, many times double-boxed, etc. This adds to the weight and dimensions of the final shipment, and impacts the cost by a few dollars, but our buyers are happy because their items arrived safely! We are open during the weekend, so local pickup is always an option.
We do not ship large furniture items, but we are more than happy to work with your preferred freight carrier. We can recommend several freight companies that have good results. Our warehouse has a full loading dock, freight elevators, etc, so freight pickup is no problem.
