We appreciate the finer things
Antiques are special to galleries, retailers and private owners for many reasons. They are either rare, valuable, historical or they have acquired a special sentimental place in your life. We are often asked how we handle, pack and wrap these incredibly important items. The simple answer...we apply The Art of Moving®. Antiques need to be shipped and handled differently. Regardless of whether their worth is resale value or sentimental, your antiques will always receive our highest level of special care and attention.
First, we identify your antique's sensitivity to being handled. Our consultation services can then determine the appropriate method of handling, packing and casing (if needed) as well as best method for forwarding the item to its final destination. We may also coordinate with the destination handlers to maintain shipping consistency and ensure our high standards of care and attention are upheld. When moving and shipping glassware, Premiere offers specialist crates with protective coverings and polystyrene blow chips to ensure glassware is safe and secure. To avoid tarnishing of precious metals, we utilize acid free tissue that is safe for long-term exposure and protection. These are just a few of the extra things we do to protect the antique items that are so valuable to you.
One of Premiere's specialties is to act as a hand courier for transportation of your antiques. We respect the level of trust required to place prized possessions in the hands of someone else. As professionals, we reinforce your trust in us by delivering on our promise to move your antiques as if they were our own.
For maximum protection, galleries, auction houses, private owners and museum curators can take advantage of our safe and secure storage vaults. Protected by stringent security, your antiques are safe and you are ensured privacy.
