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".
Objects such as newspaper clippings can simply be placed in a box or padded envelope, protected with cardboard.
PREFERRED SHIPPING METHODS:
FedEx: For shipping, we prefer to use FedEx. We ask that you provide a tracking number so that we know exactly when it will arrive. You may wish to assign a "declared value", but please note that FedEx charges $10.00 per every $1,000.00 of value added. We will also use FedEx to ship items back.
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.
