Shipping Wars--Herbert Style


            The Herbert Hotel's barber chair now resides in Texas.  We sold the chair on Ebay in July.  Weeks later, the producers of the A&E television series “Shipping Wars” filmed the pickup and delivery of the chair for a future episode. They also filmed the hotel lobby and asked us to talk about the history of the Herbert Grand Hotel and its relationship to the narrow gauge railroad and leisurely activities of the Western Mountains of Maine.  This week, A&E posted a bonus clip on its website of shipper Jennifer Brennan, aka “Texas Cowgirl,” delivering the chair to its new home. 
The new owner was not looking for a collectible vintage barber chair, only for a comfortable barber chair in which he could sit and watch television.   He may be a Texan, but he is also a hunter in the true Maine tradition.  He told “Texas Cowgirl” that his friends and he have bought three barber chairs to install in trees, where they can be comfortable and swivel around 360 degrees to watch prey approach.  This chair, however, is strictly home décor and meant to provide maximum comfort.
We look forward to seeing the complete episode during the second season of “Shipping Wars.”  Watch our blog, and you will be the first to know the date.  Something is always happening at the Herbert Grand Hotel!

  2. If you are shipping items to Brazil, you are allowed to ship personal effects and household goods duty free if your cargo shipment is comprised of items that you have owned and used for at least six months. The items that qualify for duty free shipping to Brazil must be used and cannot be for resale purposes.calgary car shipping

  4. If you offer free shipping to your customer, and your customer opts to ship next day air, overnight air, or priority mail, your business can accumulate phenomenal expenses. Таможенное оформление в россии и беларуси

  8. Customs clearance when shipping to Brazil is very important. You should plan to have all of the necessary and required documents for shipping to Brazil ready and available before your cargo arrives at the shipping port or airport. https://www.atlanticway.ru/таможенные-склады-в-литве/
