Directions for preparing a shipment:

Air cargo delivered to us should be in packaging that is shipment-ready.  If you require specific packaging, as when tranporting works of art, we can arrange crating or wrapping, but please be aware that this may entail additional prep-time and cost.

Provide a packing list with the following info:

name, address, telephone number of shipper and consignee (receiving party).

Description of contents and value of contents.

When the shipment arrives at destination airport, the consignee will be notified and should be ready to clear customs at the airport.
