Your Auction Shipping Expert
National Logistics Services specializes in the packing, crating, and shipping of items sold at auction.
National Logistics Services has earned a reputation for excellence in our packing, palletizing/crating/boxing and shipping services. Based on more than 30 years of experience, NLS owners have been working with buyers and sellers of machinery & equipment, art & antiques, computer electronics and other large, fragile and valuable items purchased at an auction. Nationally known auction houses have consistently called upon NLS to coordinate pickup, packing, palletizing/crating/boxing, inventory management, declared value coverage, and shipping services. Your shipments will arrive safely and affordably.
Are there items you haven’t sold because of the packing or shipping hassle? At NLS, we understand that buyers are more likely to purchase an item that has a predetermined shipping cost. Our professionals can provide accurate packing and shipping estimates for even your most fragile or valuable items, including sensitive medical equipment, heavy industrial machinery, valuable antiques and more. With shipping quotes before the sale - you’ll sell more!
We make the purchasing process easier because we take the guesswork out of the shipping cost BEFORE you buy with our packing and shipping estimates. Our trusted professional network of locations in the US and Canada offer a single source for pickup, packing, domestic and international shipping as well as full service delivery, including unpacking and debris removal.
