Shipping

missa31March 8, 2013

I am so in love on antiques and i am planning to buy one on Amazon, but the shipping price is to high, My friend suggested that I should try parcelbound.com. Anyone here who has heard or try this? Or can you recommend me a trusted cargo forwarder online that you know of?

I've never heard of parcelbound, but there are a lot of shippers -- even the bus lines ship items. Are you ordering from a dealer? They should be able to recommend someone. There are also shippers that wait until they have a full truckload, then go across country; it's slow, but less expensive to ship this way. However, shipping costs can often be higher than the original purchase price for furniture and other large antiques.

I'm also curious about buying antiques on Amazon -- I haven't seen them there. Am I missing something? Or perhaps what you are interested in is actually a reproduction and can be bought somewhere else locally.

I've tried parcelbound.com and my package arrive sooner than I expected and still in good condition. What kind of antique do you usually buy?
