Two types of antique shipping service
TSI offers two basic types of antique shipping service to fit your needs. Blanket wrap moving service is economical and no crating is required. You get inside pickup and delivery. Your items are carefully prepared for transport by our experienced crew of antique shipping professionals. You get a nice blend of economy and safety.
We recommend crating for higher end pieces. If crating is required, our antique shipping professionals will either crate on site or transport your item(s) to the warehouse for crating. Crating is ideal for high-value antique shipping, both for added safety and for meeting antique shipping insurance guidelines for high-value items.
A TSI antique shipping specialist will clearly explain everything. Our low antique shipping rates mean you get a better deal, and our personal approach means you get better service and peace of mind too.

Buffet Delivered in Pristine Condition
Frank B. on October 29, 2012
We go to Oregon every year, antiquing. We would not ever hesitate to use you again. You have done your best to solve a problem (unavoidable delivery delay) that was not in your control. Things happen in life where the outcome is less than desirable. It is what you do with that situation, and the way you interact with the customer after that, is what defines a great company from the rest. You have gotten our buffet to us in pristine condition We are very satisfied. We hope to work with you again.
Century Old Antique Desk – Not a Scratch
Dick Vogel on November 20, 2012
I recently shipped my grandfather’s desk with TSI; a century old antique desk. He graduated from Clemson in 1898. Our family moved into his house in 1946 when I was three. The desk was used by my grandmother, my father and my mother. Fifty years ago I started college, started to study for the first time and used this desk. Transit Systems did a great job of shipping me this desk. It arrived in perfect condition. The driver did a perfect job of placing, unwrapping, and setting it up. Not a scratch on it.
Jane Alison on April 18, 2013
By ‘on time’ I mean that they arrived within an hour of when they said, which, given the distances involved, was very good. Everyone I dealt with was courteous and efficient, and my goods–including two pieces of antique furniture–had been well handled
Family Heirloom Delivery is a Great Success
Gregory Jones on August 01, 2013
I was nervous about shipping this 300 year old walnut secretary, a family heirloom, across the North American continent. The estimate was fair, and no ‘last minute’ discovery of additional costs, etc. Very honest, direct, and straightforward and I was delighted with TSI’s service. Care in shipping was obviously taken with no damage.
Cathy L. on March 18, 2014
My biggest concern was the transport of a 100 year old, s-curved glass china cabinet that has never been out of Columbus, OH and I was having it transported to Dallas, TX. The cabinet made it to Dallas without any issues whatsoever. I was absolutely thrilled, because I honestly didn’t think it would survive the trip. I will definitely use Transit Systems Inc. again if I have to transport that cabinet across the country.

This was the second time I used specialized shipping. I had excellent service both times. Really good at handling antique furniture. This time it did take over a month to arrive but there was no time deadline for us. I will use service again if the need arrives. Thank you!!

Shipping an Antique in a Crate Relieved Anxiety
Rebecca D. on September 20, 2014
Shipping an antique china cabinet with a double curved glass door (which was already cracked) and curved glass sides is nerve wracking enough, but the guys who picked it up described exactly how they would crate it which relieved some of my anxiety. The original customer service guy I spoke with gave me rather wide ranges of time, but when I explained that I needed it picked up by a certain day, they gave me a three day range (which was fine) and called before those dates with a specific date and time. The pick-up was dot on that time. They were efficient, friendly and did everything I asked them to do. I would definitely use them again.

Karen W. on September 30, 2014
Everything was great, and although the delivery guys didn’t reach me before they got to my house (they did attempt), they were willing to wait for me to get there so I could take delivery immediately upon getting home from my job.
