Do you want to ship a single piece of marble, or a piece of furniture that has marble on it?
Here are a few packing suggestions. For a single piece of marble, find a company that can build a custom crate. A custom crater will line the crate with at least one inch of Styrofoam on each side. They may use up three inches of Styrofoam on the bottom of the crate, and up to two inches on the sides and top. A lot of this depends on the thickness and the value of the marble.
For a piece of furniture that has marble on it, you will need to make sure that the crater knows how to remove the marble from the furniture. The crating of the marble will then follow the same rules as if it was a single piece of marble.
Make sure that the crate is closed properly and reinforced with metal banding that is applied securely around the crate. So whether you are packing an estate in Houston, are looking for a Houston furniture shipper, or trying to find international shippers, you can follow the same steps when looking for a custom crater.
When moving marble within same city, look for a mover that can build the custom moving crate for you. They will need the exact dimensions. Length times width times height. You do not want the movers to arrive with the wrong size crate. We recommend measuring the marble two times to make sure that you give the mover the correct dimensions. They will add space for the Styrofoam lining that they add inside the crate to protect your marble.
