Following best practices as to pack your valuable item is of utmost importance to prevent from any damage during transportation and handling. Below you will find a non-exhaustive list of Convelio's packing guidelines.
Note that if your packing does not comply with the below conditions, our logistics team will have to build a custom protection for your merchandise. This service will be charged at your expense.
Paintings, mirrors and marble must never be put horizontally flat but always at an angle between 45 and 90 degrees
Paintings and mirrors must be bubble wrapped. After wrapping, and before placement in a wood crate, the different faces must be protected with cardboard.
Concrete and marble items must never be in direct contact with wood.
We expect the polystyrene sheets to be at least a minimum 3/4cm thick. If fragile, ceramics, vases, chandeliers (and this is especially true for Murano glass) must be completely disassembled.
Each item must be packed individually in bubble wrap and then put in polystyrene snow. If several items are stacked in the same wood-crate, they should not be in contact directly (bubble wrap + polystyrene sheet in between at least).
