In response to 143521: Desk shipping to Big Island, posted by Carol G55 on Thursday, 19 September 2019, at 9:40 a.m.

Something to keep in mind.

Many years ago, I visited a couple who had moved from the mainland to Hilo. They had shipped a few antiques. It was not long before those antiques were destroyed by both humidity and termites. They wished they had not paid to ship them.

Of course, Hilo is a lot wetter than the Kona side, but still, consider if this is really something you need here.

I had an antique settee which I was going to ship here but changed my mind. I took photos of it and sold it.

Many people have one of two reasons for keeping antiques.

1) To remember events or things associated witht he item. A photo can do the same thing without taking up room.

2) Many people think that they want to keep an item 'in the family'. It turns out that millennials don't seem to care about antiques. Well, this article says they can't afford them. So if you are hoping they will cherish the item, they may just sell it to pay off debt.
