After pick up, every item is packed in “made on measure” wooden crates. Ship Antiques provides wooden crates which meet antiques’ high standards.
Every wooden crate is made for international shipping, and meets international standards (NIMP15 / ISPSM15), and will be delivered with required documents and international certifications.
International shipping requires very high packing and crating quality to avoid any impact and damages, particularly for sea shipping, which leads us to an upper strictness level.
Electronics and items with sensitive or bare metal surfaces which are shipped by sea require moisture vapor proof packaging. Salted water and vapor put sensitive electronic components and metal surfaces at risk of corrosion, potentially harming the product’s functionality. Our professional packers place this kind of precious items in a moisture vapor barrier cover before heat-sealing the seams.
A vacuum is then used to reduce the air volume inside the bag before the final seal, thus lowering the humidity level inside the barrier cover.
