“Authentic and unique nautical finds that you can’t get anywhere else. I first got a porthole mirror and two wall sconces to go above a bathroom sink. Later, I got ten post lights to compliment my landscaping. Jim was very willing to take the time talking through mounting and installation both before and after purchase. Their website has great detail in descriptions and photos. Couldn’t recommend more highly.”

“I have had an opportunity to buy many light fixtures from Jim and the team at Big Ship Salvage as we work to complete a house renovation on the beach in South Carolina. All of our exterior fixtures are coming from them. The quality of the fixtures is tremendous, and the customer service is fantastic. They are great about answering any and all questions, and everything arrives incredibly well packed. Can’t say enough good things about my experience.”

“Ahoy There!

As I continue to decorate my sailboat and ocean themed family room, I needed some unique items for emphasis. I came across the name, Big Ship Salvage, in a decorating magazine and went directly to their website.

The items listed were vast and varied giving me several ideas. From nautical lights, flags, life vests and other antiques, I felt like I found a treasure chest. The website is clean, inviting and held my interest for an hour as I looked at so many items before coming to a decision. The items I ordered; the Fairless Jim-Buoy Life Preserver and an authentic nautical flag, after delivery, looked just as they did on the website.

This family-owned business is expansive and very friendly. When I called to place an order, Liz, a team member, was so kind and helpful. She provided whatever information I needed and never made me feel as though I was “bothering” her. In fact, her wonderful customer service caused me to order more items.
This was the best shopping experience that I have had in a while!

Overall: There is no doubt that I will return to Big Ship Salvage for any future nautical needs.”
