What does white glove shipping, furniture delivery & moving mean?
White-glove delivery has a strict set of standards that ensure the highest quality possible. For example, all packages are delivered securely to your door rather than left on your doorstep, which eliminates the chance for drops and slip-ups from everyday life.
With white-glove service, you also get 24-hour customer service as soon as an issue develops with your shipment – complete peace of mind!

It can be tough to find a number of resources in the design world that understand the peculiar problems that arise when designing for huge spaces, or even small apartments with no elevators. As an interior designer, you will definitely need to know where all your tools are (or work with someone who does), but also about places like wholesalers and warehouses—which can make furniture buying easy.
If they plan ahead, the whole process of furnishing their space will go smoother; they won’t be led on wild goose chases or lured into bidding wars in showrooms. For this reason it’s best to use an interior designer warehouse! It’s not only meant for consolidating pieces from furniture suppliers but also granting easy inventory control, client support, and logistic solutions.

Receiving is the process by which a product is accepted from the supplier and includes inspecting for quality, condition, completeness, package damage, quantity of contents arriving compared to invoice or purchase order specification.
The receiving department may be specifically tasked with checking in deliveries put on hold at the company’s dock for security purposes. It may also provide data to management about what was delivered and how it went through customs.
Warehouse receiving follows a set receipt process that includes receiving checks (quality inspections), issuing receipts (labelling our shipment), scanning (information recorded into warehouse system) and stocking goods.
Packing art can be more difficult than packing other items, so it is best to contact a professional when you decide to relocate. That way, your paintings will arrive in pristine condition and ready for their new home. We recommend you pack your art with the help of a professional art-packing and moving company. These companies were created to take care of homeowner’s needs, so using one is definitely recommended.
If you do decide to mail them yourself- invest in sturdy boxes. If the painting has any glass parts- pack it loosely with filler material like packing peanuts and then wrap it up in bubble wrap and polyester fabric. Secure the wrapped package with strong packaging tape and place into a box that’s an inch bigger than needed for extra protection before sealing it closed with shipping tape.

Do you need an art transport company to ship your artwork internationally? We can help. Contact us now and one of our knowledgeable team will provide the perfect solution.
The first thing we’ll do is take a look at your needs and offer a selection of competitively priced air and sea offers to meet those needs. For example, if you’re shipping paintings and they need to be packaged differently, we can offer different prices based on how easily we think it would be for them to handle being shipped internationally. If they have framing, this could present some issues so there may be additional costs involved with packaging but this hinges upon the type of transport medium that’s being used as well as their framable or not-framable state at the time
Yes and we encourage you to discover the cargo insurance program prepared by our insurance carrier. As your transportation service provider, we want you to have the best protection available to anticipate any unforeseen events.
