Over the past ten years we have had thousands of packages shipped to us. Shipping is very safe and predictable if you choose the right service and pack appropriately. Here are our recommendations on how to safely get your items to us.
Currency, Coins, Small Valuables:
We recommend shipping small valuable items that aren’t fragile via USPS registered mail with insurance. Package currency using cardboard so it can’t bend. Package coins so that they don’t jangle. Contact us if you need to know an insurance amount.
Larger Less Fragile Items:
Things like signs, trays, and other somewhat bulky objects are best shipped via USPS priority mail with insurance. Again, just package securely so the condition of what you are mailing is not compromised.
If you are mailing anything fragile like lamps, vases, and other breakable items then we recommend mailing via UPS with insurance. You can pay UPS to pack for you, or you can do it yourself. Just be sure to double box and use lots of bubble wrap and packing peanuts. Double boxing means putting the fragile item in one box fully protected, then putting that box in a larger box with more packing materials. It takes a little bit of work, but it is very secure.
