Packing box marked fragile

Professional Packaging

Quality of packaging and packing materials

The wrong packaging so often leads to disappointment when buying antiques or delicate collectables on-line, especially due to the fragile character inherent in so many collectables and to a large extend all antiques. I have never forgotten the deep disenchantment many years ago when my parents made their first antique on-line purchase, only to receive a postal damaged Art Deco Statue.

At Worcester Antiques we take great care when packing items ready for dispatch. They are hand packed by myself or my wife. When required we use double skin cardboard cartons, these are bought in new from a local packaging supplier in Worcester. As well as high quality bubble wrap we also use biodegradable packing chips and acid free packing tissue. In nearly all situations we use environmentally friendly cartons; new but manufactured from recycled materials.

In certain circumstances we may double box a very fragile item. This means packaging a fragile item in one carton, then packing this within a second larger carton.

All items are securely taped and marked Fragile.
