Shipping most items is not a problem. Anything that cannot be protected with bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or newspaper can be secured with cut pieces of foam or air bags of various sizes. Wrapping all the packed pieces in a blanket or quilt will provide added protection. People can be quite creative when packing personal items to be shipped. They can also create peace of mind by adding postal insurance to the package. That will mean damaged, lost, or stolen items can be replaced. If the package arrives crushed, does not arrive at all, or arrives opened and empty, a claim is filled out and the monetary value of the object is paid to the owner.
Creative packing and insurance is adequate for the majority of things shipped but does not suffice when the item is an antique family heirloom, a one-of-a-kind sculpture or artwork, a prized possession, or a priceless artifact. Those types of items cannot be replaced with insurance money. If they are damaged, lost, or broken another one is not available. In situations like that, professional and innovative packing services in San Antonio can make a huge difference in how well items are protected.
That train collection that took a lifetime to gather can be packaged in a custom-designed and constructed crate. Individual compartments lined with molded foam can be used to protect every piece. The crate cover can be lined with more foam to prevent pieces from being jostled during shipping. A hinged door with a security lock can ensure components will not be stolen. Insurance is still recommended, but the likelihood of loss or damage is drastically reduced.
Odd-shaped items, such as a blown glass decorative centerpiece or a unique piece of furniture, can have a special crate built to suit the size and dimensions perfectly. A snug fit, special bracing within the box or crate, and wheels on the bottom will allow items to be moved smoothly and steadily. There will be less opportunity for vibration to affect the item or jarring to damage the piece. Specialized packing is more cost-effective than most people expect.
