Transporting valuable musical instruments is nerve-wracking for any musician, and it can be stressful to trust someone else with your treasured items. Unfortunately, attempting to move a large number of instruments and musical equipment on your own can result in packing errors and expensive shipping costs. Instead of taking on that responsibility, contact ShipSmart. They have over 15 years of experience moving everything from furniture to fine art and instruments, and regularly work with some of the world’s top museums and galleries. When Les Paul’s estate needed to transport a variety of his prototypes for the first electric guitar, they turned to ShipSmart. ShipSmart will apply the same care and service they gave the multimillion dollar collection to your beloved instruments. To discover how economical ShipSmart’s industry leading packing and shipping service can be, use their online price calculator to get a quote, or call their helpful phone staff.
