Art transportation

Art shipping is sometimes tricky and therefore ought to be thought through precisely before any arrangements are made. For one, every branch of art (sometimes every piece) requires its own ways of securing for transportation. The art section is very diverse, you can find there a big collection of things from paintings or engravings to sculptures, art installations and much more.

Art is almost always very fragile and therefore can be easily damaged. What’s more most of the art pieces are unconventional in shape as well as size, so transporting it via courier is not an option. And lastly art is an expensive cargo, which makes it very important to choose a trustworthy transport provider and the best way of securing the art for shipping. That again exclude post office as well as most couriers – companies where you cannot work out the details of the transportation with the person who is going to be directly responsible for transporting your load.

Art is thought of as delicate load. You have to remember to place ”fragile” sign on the box, to make sure that the transport provider is especially gentle when transporting it. When securing an art piece for shipment there is an issue of packaging. With items bought from a store you get an original box which in the future you can use to for transportation (e.g. that goes for household appliances). But with art you don’t have any original packaging – you have to secure it on your own.

What is the safest way to pack art for transportation? It depends on a piece of art you wish to ship. When it comes to sculptures and pottery it is crucial to find a cardboard that could fit it. The box shouldn’t be too big – any empty space left between the box and the art can be the cause of destroying the load during shipment. If the art piece you are transporting have any elements that can be removed, you should make sure to transport them separately. Wrap every part of the art in bubble wrap and carefully place the cargo in the cardboard. If there is some space left in the box, fill it with some bubble wrap or Styrofoam. Don’t forget to place a “fragile” sticker on the top and on the side of the cardboard.

Securing a painting for transportation will require a different approach. There are boxes dedicated for transporting paintings – if you have one of those, your painting will be secured during transportation – just don’t forget to fill the empty space with some cloths and Styrofoam to cushion any tremors on the road. In case you do not possess such box, you can transport a painting without a box, enclosed in bubble foil and stretch foil. As long as you don’t forget that the bubble wrap or stretch foil cannot be in contact with the painted side of the cargo. To avoid that enclose the cargo in some softer material (some cotton fabric or even a bed sheet) before enclosing it in bubble wrap.

When it comes to placing the cargo in a transporting vehicle, a painting should be shipped upward. With both paintings and sculptures make sure that the cargo will not be able to fall over during shipment and that some other load won’t bump into it during such event as a sudden turn.
