Our recomended shippers are FedEx & UPS as they have a better track record & will come pick up & inspect in the event of any breakage

There are two ways to get your items to us. You can pay a professional mailing company to pack and ship your dinnerware or you can safely pack it yourself if you adhere to the following recommendations.

 

First, we recommend that you wrap each item in bubble wrap, foam or several sheets of newsprint. Each piece needs to be wrapped separately. Nesting two or three flat pieces (like plates) together with packing material between each is okay. All crystal stems should be wrapped individually. NEVER nest cups, bowls or serving pieces. You should not be able to feel cup handles, lid finials etc. once you have wrapped them. Nothing should be sticking out. Once all of your pieces are in bubble wrap etc, put them all in a box that is in good condition, and secure them with crushed newspaper or Styrofoam peanuts. Put heavier pieces in the bottom of the box, but if you have pieces with vastly different weights, use more than one box!! Remember that the bottom of the box may end up on top. Many people with big sets send cups and serving pieces in one box and flat pieces like plates in another. Tape the box shut with packing tape. Shake it. Make sure nothing moves.

 

Place this box inside a larger box with Styrofoam peanuts or crushed paper between the boxes. UPS recommends at least two inches of packing material between the two boxes. Shake again and make sure nothing is moving. Remember that multiple smaller, lighter boxes are easier to handle safely than one giant, heavy box.

 

For a fee, UPS and FedEx will come to your house to pick up packages that you are sending. Mail companies will also ship via a shipping company for a premium. The US Postal Service works well, too, and has rates comparable to UPS and FedEx. Please be sure to insure your boxes for the values that we have quoted to you.

 

Keep in mind that all the major carriers like FedEx, UPS, and USPS offer good service for a reasonable price. When you hear horror stories about the various carriers and delivery services damaging items in packages it is usually because the items were not properly packed in the first place. It is in the best interest of these carriers to deliver your package intact. You should feel confident that if you adhere to the recommendations above that your pieces will arrive safely. Classic Replacements ships hundreds of packages every month and almost never loses a single piece.

 

Please include a list of the specific items you are sending, along with your name, mailing address, email address and phone number.
