Hi Everyone,

I am moving to Dallas in November, and am currently working for the next two months in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. I have purchased a sculpture in Reno, Nevada, and need to have it shipped to Dallas to await my arrival there. It's a rather large and heavy piece, so I don't want to have to move it from Reno to Dallas with the rest of my things.

I don't know if the seller can delay shipment of the piece until I return to the States. Is there a freight acceptance company or other way I can have it accepted and securely stored until I arrive in Dallas in November? It's a rather valuable piece, so I need secure storage.

Thanks for your help!

Check out ABF.com ABF Freight System, Inc. - Home Page . I used them via UPAC.com, but that's the actual company which did cross country driving of our trailer. Thety are Dallas based, and we had our stuff in storage for 30 days in the trailer we packed ourselves. Of course, if you are out of the Country you'll have to hire someone for this things, but I know storage is possible on the same relocube or a trailer you put your stuff at the point of origin, andd it stays there until you are ready to have it delivered.

Hope it helps.
