Shipping and Handling
99% of all items treated at Inge Preservations are shipped, and it need not cause the owner of these pieces any loss of sleep. Sending one or more items to Inge Preservations is safe and simple if done properly.
PREPARING THE PACKAGE: A flat object should be protected with cardboard (2 sheets on each side), or masonite for larger items, cut about 1" larger on each side than the object. The cardboard or masonite should then be taped securely on all four sides. The package should be marked on both sides with "FRAGILE".
PREFERRED SHIPPING METHODS:
USPS: For shipping, we suggest that you use the postal service. You could use Registered Mail if you desire your item to have 100% supervision while in transit, but Priority Mail is the usual preferred method of most of our clients. The beauty of this method of shipping is that it is safe at the post office until we pick it up. We ask that you provide a tracking number so that we know exactly when it will arrive.
FedEx: Many of our clients prefer using FedEx, which is also a very reliable shipper. Please request a signature upon delivery, and provide us with a tracking number.
Other: If an owner prefers to use a carrier other than FedEx, we ask to be notified in advance so that we will be aware of the shipping method.
