White Globe Delivery Service
Your high-value freight deserves high-quality care!
Sometimes your freight needs special attention. And when it does, we’re here to make it happen! Get special handling, delivery and assembly for your fragile and high-value shipments with white glove shipping service through Unishippers.
What is white glove shipping?
The term "white glove" refers to the white gloves that butlers and other domestic staff members used to wear, which convey impeccable cleanliness and high service standards — and white glove shipping provides just that! White glove delivery is a perfect solution for shipments that require special handling such as inside delivery, unpacking, inspection or the removal of packing materials. While white glove delivery can be utilized any time your freight requires special handling, customers typically select this service when shipping high-value items such as furniture, fine art, antiques and more.
What You Get With White Glove Service
When you request white glove service, your freight is handled by carriers who are specially trained in handling high-end cargo. This starts at the very beginning with the initial packaging, when the carrier will ensure your freight is packed with utmost care — and with the most appropriate packaging to prevent damage during transit or delivery. When it’s time for your freight to be delivered, your cargo isn’t just left at the front door. White glove carriers get in touch with the customer ahead of time to determine a preferred delivery time and location within their home or office — making sure the process is as convenient as possible. If the product was shipped from the manufacturer or disassembled for transport, the carrier will also reassemble it upon delivery.
How much does white glove delivery cost?
Since there is a premium cost for white glove delivery, we recommend utilizing this service only when your shipment requires special handling. While pricing is customized per shipment, costs are typically based on several variables including the distance between the origin and final destination, drop-off location (since stairs or other difficult-to-navigate factors will increase the cost of delivery) and product specifications (such as size, weight, shape and assembly complexity).
