Packing & Shipping Guidelines
Due to the fragile nature of many types of tableware and collectibles, sometimes pieces can be damaged in transit. By following the guidelines outlined below, you'll be greatly reducing the chances of your pieces arriving broken or chipped.
Wrap each piece individually in bubble wrap or foam. Start at one corner and wrap diagonally. Secure pieces of the same size together in bundles with tape. Use extra padding around delicate handles and stems. Teapot, coffeepot and sugar bowl lids should be wrapped separately and then taped into their position. Flatware pieces should be wrapped individually to minimize scratching. Collectibles should not be wrapped tightly or with bubble wrap. Loosefill or peanuts are best for fragile items.
Please check with your carrier for their wrapping instructions.
We recommend that you double box by placing one box within another and packing with at least two inches of padding between all six sides of the cartons. Keep in mind that the larger the carton, the higher the rate of breakage due to shifting or overloading. Place heavier items in the bottom of the carton. Separate bundles and individually wrapped pieces with bubble wrap or foam cushioning. Bundles of plates, bowls or platters should be placed around the edges to absorb extra shock. Before sealing a carton, pad the top and sides of the box as full as possible to prevent air pockets or pieces touching the sides. Contents should not move when the box is shaken. Seal the carton with 2" to 3" carton sealing tape.
Please do not use masking or cellophane tape to seal boxes.
Mark each box with the word "fragile" and label the outside with the total number of boxes in your shipment (i.e., #1 of 3, #2 of 3, etc.). For your convenience, we ask that you package the china, crystal, flatware or collectibles separately. Please also mark the outside of the carton with the words "China", "Crystal", "Flatware" or "Collectibles" so that we may process your shipment more promptly. All paperwork should be attached to the outside of the box with a packing list enclosure (invoice envelope).
Keep one copy of the paperwork for your records.
Insurance practices vary by shipping company.
Please check with your shipping company to verify that your shipment is adequately packaged per their instructions and has insurance based on the offer price of the merchandise. If the merchandise is shipped through the United Parcel Service (UPS) and arrives at Replacements, Ltd. damaged, depending on the severity of the damage we will notify either you or UPS. If the damage is minor, we will notify you and include complete instructions on how to file a claim yourself. If the damage is more significant, we will notify UPS and they will communicate with you concerning the damage and settlement of claims.
Please understand that once we have notified you and/or the carrier, the settlement of the claim is between you and the carrier. Merchandise returned from Replacements, Ltd. will be insured at Offer to Purchase prices; we also reserve the right to replace merchandise damaged in transit from us to you with like merchandise, or our current Offer to Purchase prices, at our sole discretion.
