Is shipping always safe and sound?
Absolutely YES! We pay extra attention to use special secure wrapping materials.
- We use the two box-system.
- All the boxes are three layered shock reducing heat-isolation boxes.
- Using the right fill in materials
- The bigger porcelain pieces are fixed with a form keeping foam. Just like water uses the form of the cup, this foam keeps the form of the box and the porcelain.
- The packing is only done by the professional colleagues of Herend manufactory.
And as an extra security, all the Herend porcelain packages of Herend Experts are insured by the Lloyd’s London All-Risk-Insurance through the Barhta and Partner Global Fine Art Risk Management. This means practically, that we resend your porcelain in case of damage for free.
