We are known for our success rate shipping furniture and compassionate customer service by customers nationwide. But, if your a blanket wrap delivery company, we are known to be a pain in the bottom. Shippers fret our stop, like a kids nerve a doctor's visit. On every visit, a shipper will be tempted to pack our furniture with regular moving pads like everyone else. We do not do things like everyone else here. And, I can promise that a simple blanket, would not save a piece of furniture from being damaged from a likely bump in travel. In every shipping situation, and each one is slightly different, the shipping job calls for discipline, time, material and each job should be handled the right way and not the easy way. This may all sound like hot air and of no interest to you as a reader, but if your trying to ship furniture, this is not a bunch of hot air. It is the key to a successful delivery without damage. On every shipping day in our warehouse, managers steer ship...

In these pictures, you'll see a Henredon Aston Court being packed by our staff and ready to ship via blanket wrap service. This table has an apron, which we protect with custom fitted EPS panels and 1" styrofoam boards. After the table is packed with protection like this, shippers will still cover and wrap with pads around the entire product to hold all materials together for the long trip. This table also would be "skinned" with corrugation. When packed properly, this table risks little damage from even the most likey accidents, ie,buckle straps, catching corners, riding on edge or edge damage. This package would withstand the most brutal punishment with no damage to the Henredon dining table that hidden inside.. Please request, all deliverires are unpacked in the comforts of your home. Many times shippers will unpack the item in there truck, and simply catch a corner while bringing the goods into your door way. You want to unpack these fragile goods, direc...

Here is a used E.J. Victor dining room table being packed and readied for blanket wrappers. This was a local table found on consigment and being shipped to California. You would think a blanket wrap delivery was mostly blankets. Thats not true at AntiquePurveyor's fullfilment warehouse. All fine furniture will be protected with EPS and corrugation and blankets. This table was unassembled, into two halfs for a shipment to California. Our High end furniture warehouse and distribution center in New Jersey prides itelf on preparing furniture for the long haul. Here we show some of the steps we take to land this older E.J. Victor Newport table into a new home.

During our busy season, primarily the fall months of October through December, many orders will come in within days of each thus creating a burden on our shippers. We do everything possible to get everyone done on time without delay. On this day, we had about 5 or 6 orders to be picked up by Plycon. The first truck that came to service our store didn't have enough room for all of the orders so I called dispatch for another truck. We can't do this on every time, but we will try on every occasion to get everyone's orders out the door as quickly as possible and without delays. In this case, there was another Plycon truck in the area so we were able to get everyones products on the road by our promised deadline. 2 Plycon trucks on AntiquePurveyor loading dock during peak season ensuring orders are filled without delay.
