We recognize the importance of effective logistics, as this integral step in the design process could make or break the overall experience of your client. Our customer service representatives and project managers have over 50 years combined experience in working directly with Interior Designers and coordinating client installations and logistics. Our goal is to be a value adding component of your customer service team.
While we are large enough to accommodate your requests in a short notice, we also provide the individualized attention that you deserve and expect from a smaller company. Perhaps you'd like to work with the same installers every time? Or maybe you have a client who requests only morning deliveries? Whatever the case, we assign your account to one of our highly skilled account managers, who will make it their business to remember all of your most intricate details and special requests, which in turn will help to make your business run smoothly. A personal representative will oversee your project from start to finish. Your complete satisfaction is our top priority, as we understand that our performance is a reflection of your image.
Our receiving docks can accommodate any size truck or container, and are equipped to effectively receive and inspect your goods as they arrive at the warehouse. We have a ground level dock for cars and light trucks to aid in drop offs and pickups. We receive single pieces to full trailer loads for either immediate delivery or consolidation. All items are thoroughly inspected, any condition issues noted, then entered into our inventory management system. As an additional tracking aid, a CCTV system records all warehouse movement.
Our receivers and warehouse personnel ensure that your items remain protected throughout the duration of your storage term. Additionally, our customer service representatives will immediately notify you when goods are received, and provide shipping documentation for your records. Trust the professionals at Classic Design Services. You can rest assured that your items will be in good hands.
Our receiving hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 4:00pm. It is requested that large shipments schedule a dock appointment. Our warehouse is centrally located in the Buckhead/Midtown area of Atlanta, with convenient access to Interstate 85.
Classic offers a full range of affordable storage solutions.
For short term storage of items that do not require interaction or viewing by you or your clients, our common rack storage is suggested. For sensitive items that require some protection from temperature extremes, but limited interaction or viewing, vaulted storage in our temperature controlled warehouse is the recommended solution. For long term projects with client interaction, viewing and extended installation time frames, our temperature controlled private rooms are an ideal solution. Available with configurable racking, private rooms are also used by design firms as a showroom, workroom or product warehouse. On site climate controlled storage is available for artwork through CV Fine Art Services
We provide a secure storage facility, with 24-hour interior and exterior video surveillance, motion detectors, controlled and monitored access, sprinklers, and fire trouble monitoring.
You've just found the perfect item for that hard to please client, but you have no way to take it with you. Classic maintains a private fleet of clean, air-ride trucks waiting to make that pickup for you. These trucks feature a logistical restraint system to ensure a secure environment for the transport of your goods. Consisting of flexible, respectful personnel, our courteous professional crews can provide local or nationwide blanket wrapped pickup and inside delivery services to you at a moment's notice.
It is our top priority to hire only the most competent, skilled drivers and packers. We make sure that our crews are extensively trained in the handling of your goods, executing with proven teamwork, finely honed maneuvering tactics to prevent damage to furnishings, flooring and interior walls. We adhere to the highest levels of confidentiality and security, therefore we require full background checks of all of our employees.
We understand the importance of choosing a carrier that will take proper care of your client's possessions, and are confident that you will be pleased with our first class transit services.
Our employees will help you attend to every detail, whether delivering one piece of furniture, or installing an entire home of fine furnishings, antiques, and collectible art. Our skilled, experienced installers take great care and effort to complete each job according to your specifications. Classic crews have been trained to respond to the needs of designers, project managers and clients. They offer unparalleled experience in unpacking, organizing and placing furnishings. Our crews are available for a wide range of projects such as showroom resets and design house installs.
Classic crews have extensive experience with the assembly of new furnishings, hanging of art and tapestry, the deluxing of furniture after unpacking and generally serving the designer's need to keep the client's experience positive.
We welcome the challenge of creating customized installation solutions for our clients, and are equipped to handle a variety of demanding installation tasks.
Classic offers a full range of custom packaging and crating services designed to provide maximum protection for your valued items.
Our experienced packers will complete your packing quickly and efficiently, using the highest quality packaging materials. We can do all of the packing for you, or we can provide you with the professional packing materials necessary to pack the items yourself.
At Classic, we understand the challenges that exist in moving very fragile pieces, whether across the country, across the world, or anywhere in between. Our crating shop fabricates custom crates that are designed to precisely fit the size and weight of your goods, and built to ensure a safe delivery. All of our crates are configured for structural integrity, providing the highest possible level of protection. We also use the most current interior packaging materials available. Marble tops, mirrors, chandeliers, delicate china, and fine art are among the many items that we are entrusted to crate.
Even with all the care we take, the training and tools that we provide our crews, the unthinkable can happen. Your most valuable piece could suffer damage that renders it a total loss. We offer valuation coverage to help offset that loss. Federal and state regulations require our industry to the cover total loss of goods at $1.20 per pound. For many common items, this is sufficent. We offer comprehensive valuation packages to help bridge the gap between mandated coverage and the true value of your items.
Our carrier provides seamless protection all the way, for just 1.5% of the declared value of items in transit. While in storage, valuation coverage is available at one to two percent of the declared value, added to the monthly storage fees. We carry full building liability protection, which allows us to operate in the nation's most exclusive buildings and facilities. Our coverage also includes on-site protection for your home, truck cargo damage, theft protection, warehouse in-transit coverage for fire or theft, Workers' Compensation and umbrella liability. Classic Design Services is committed to excellence, so we will go the extra mile to ensure that your furnishings are covered from the pick-up point all the way to the delivery point.
