Shipping volumes grow for fine art and antiques sector
Mail Boxes Etc. has a unique relationship with auction houses, fine art dealers, private buyers and collectors the world over. Our unrivalled expertise in this specialist area has grown as a result of carefully developing that relationship over the years, and through it we’ve been able to learn how to make our service even more effective.
For example, we know that carriers will not provide compensation cover for certain items including antiques, glazed paintings and other fine glassware and so we have developed our Enhanced Cover compensation scheme, which provides a better level of cover for priceless and irreplaceable items than any single carrier can offer. That represents peace of mind and excellent value for our customers.
Our long-established relationships with auction houses and regular collections from their premises mean that they are delighted to recommend us to their clients as part of their end-to-end service. And we are happy to follow through with skilled packing, custom boxing, handling all the relevant paperwork (including customs documentation), online tracking and obtaining a signature on delivery. And of course, it goes without saying that we will match the service and carrier to the customer’s precise needs, every time.
Our reputation precedes us in a marketplace where good contacts are valued and news travels fast. That’s why our business is growing in an area where no-one does it quite like Mail Boxes Etc.
