If you’re buying breakables or selling a sculpture online, then chances are you might require a fragile goods transport company to provide safe passage for your purchase.

Many items that you might need to transport could be classified as “fragile” and will require special care during delivery, moving musical instruments or artwork for example takes a lot more care than shipping a breeze block.

Fragile items are usually valuable, be it sentimentally or financially, which is why it pays to look for dedicated fragile goods couriers that are well versed in transporting delicate goods; specialists should have a wealth of experience in your item’s category and should have comprehensive insurance cover.

Whether you choose a fragile goods transport expert or not, you need to make some preparations before you get delicate items delivered:

Research: If you’re distance buying/selling antiques then make sure you know their worth; this will help you choose the right level of service when it comes to picking a delivery company. What’s more, it might prompt you to up the level of insurance beyond the standard cover of the courier.

Inspection: Make sure you give your item a thorough check over.If you’re getting an item off eBay listed for collection then ask the seller for an accurate description, this way you’ll be able to see if it suffers any nicks or scrapes during transit.

Get Wrapping: Your glassware isn’t going anywhere without a generous helping of bubble wrap or polystyrene. Make sure that your items are secure in a box where they can’t move about, and if moving stacked items ensure you provide padding between each layer.

Fragile goods come in all shapes and sizes and require different specialised handling, if you need piano removals you’re looking at a completely different job to delivering china plates and different specific preparations as well.
