just two payments. You pay a deposit of 50% at time of scheduling, then the
final payment when your trunk is finished.
Q: What's the deal with shipping? I live out-of-state. How can I get my trunk to your shop?
Not a big deal! Over 95% of the trunks we restore come to us from all over the
world. Check your local FedEx Ground or UPS centers. Many offer very
reasonable packing rates and they make it easy to send large and small packages.

ours. It doesn't have to be an older model either as we have experience working
on the newer ones as well.
Q: My antique trunk also needs new handles. Are these included in the price estimate?

we restore as they are custom made for each and every trunk, some are stitched by
hand, by us, right here in our shop.
