What We Do Best

Professional Packing

Every item is packed to meet carrier standards to insure safe delivery.  Our team of packing professionals are trained to pack to the highest standards, and to treat every item as if it were their own.  


Custom boxes and crates are available to order.


We specialize in packing artwork, including:

      framed pieces, with or without glass

      sculpture (bronze, porcelain, stone)

      wood (turned, carved, small furniture)

      glass art


We have extensive experience packing guitars, amplifiers, and a full range of musical instruments (though we have not yet packed a Sousaphone....)


We also take great pleasure in packing a wide variety of items, including: 

      “stuffed by a taxidermist” turkey, bears, and hammerhead shark

      civil war era cannonballs

      car parts

      heirloom china 

      laboratory equipment

      private academic libraries (once shipping two pallets of a collection to a museum in Russia)

Shipping Services

Let us help you determine the best way to get your belongings to their destination.

We are a FedEx Authorized Ship Center, shipping with FedEx Express, FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery.  FedEx delivers within the United States as well as internationally.  All FedEx packages are trackable, guaranteed and insured.  


We are a DHL Ship Center, for international shipping.


We are a shipping partner with the United States Postal Service, offering first class mail, priority mail, certified mail, and media mail.

Freight Shipping - When the things you ship are too big or too heavy for FedEx Express or Ground, we work with a broker to find the most reasonable freight cost available.

Curbside Assistance

There are loading zones available on both sides of Cayuga Street just outside our store with 15 minute Free Parking.  These are for your use.  They are generally less used in the mornings.


If you need an extra pair of hands, or a cart to bring packages in, we are more than happy to assist you.
