Art transportation

Art shipping can be tricky and therefore ought to be thought through precisely before first preparations are made. Firstly, every field of art (sometimes every piece) needs different ways of preparing for transportation. The art category is quite diverse, you will find there a big collection of items from paintings and engravings to sculptures, art installations and much more.

Art is almost always very fragile and is prone to damages. Moreover most of the art pieces are atypical in shape as well as size, therefore transporting it via post office often not an option. And lastly art is an expensive load, so it’s crucial to choose a professional hauler and the best way of preparing the art for transportation. That excludes post office and most couriers – services where you don’t get to speak to the person who will be directly responsible for transporting your cargo.

Art is considered to be delicate load. You must put ”fragile” sticker on the package, to make sure that the transport provider know to be especially careful while shipping it. While preparing an art piece for transportation you will encounter a problem of packaging. With items bought from a store you get a package that can be used for shipping the item in the future (for example that goes for household appliances). But when it comes to art there is no original packaging – you have to take care of it on your own.

What is the safest way to pack art for transportation? It varies depending on what piece you want to ship. With sculptures and pottery the most important thing is to select a box that could fit it. The box cannot be much bigger than the load – any empty space left between the cardboard and the art may be the cause of destroying the load during transportation. If the art piece you are transporting have any elements that can be removed, remember to ship them separately. Enclose every part of the art in bubble wrap and gently place the cargo in the box. If there is some space left between the load and the cardboard, fill it with some bubble wrap and Styrofoam. Don’t forget to put a “fragile” sign both on the top and on the side of the box.

Preparing a painting for shipment will look a little different. There are special boxes for painting transportation – with one of those, your painting should be secured during shipment – just don’t forget to fill the empty space with some fabric and Styrofoam to cushion any vibrations on the road. If you do not possess such box, you may transport a painting without it, wrapped in bubble wrap and stretch foil. As long as you remember that the bubble foil and stretch foil cannot touch the painted side of your load. To ensure that won’t happen enclose the cargo in some softer material (a piece of cotton fabric like a bed sheet) before enclosing it in bubble foil.

As for putting the cargo in a transporting vehicle, a painting should be transported upward. With every piece of art make sure that the cargo won’t fall over during shipment and that nothing will bump into it in case of such event as a sudden turn.
