Art transportation

Art shipping is sometimes difficult and therefore should be thought through cautiously before any arrangements are made. For one, every field of art (in some cases every piece) needs its own ways of preparing for transportation. The art category is very differentiated, you can find there a big variety of things from drawings and engravings to pottery, art installations and much more.

Art is usually very breakable and is prone to damages. Moreover many art pieces are unconventional in shape and dimensions, so shipping it via courier often not an option. And lastly art is an expensive load, so it’s crucial to find a professional hauler and the best way of securing the art for transportation. That again exclude post office and most couriers – companies where you cannot speak to the person who will be directly responsible for transporting your load.

Art is considered to be delicate cargo. You have to remember to place such sticker on the box, so that the hauler is extra gentle while shipping it. While securing an art piece for shipment you will encounter a problem of packaging. When you buy something in a store you get an original box which in the future you can use to for transportation (for example that goes for household appliances). However when it comes to art there is no original box – you have to secure it by yourself.

How to choose the safest way to secure art for transportation? It depends on a piece of art you want to ship. When it comes to sculptures and pottery it is crucial to find a box that could fit it. The box shouldn’t be too big – any room left between the box and the art may be the cause of destroying the load during shipment. If the shipped art piece have any removable elements, remember to ship them on their own. Wrap every part of the art in bubble foil and carefully put it in the box. If there is any empty space left between the load and the cardboard, fill it with some bubble foil and Styrofoam. Remember to place a “fragile” sticker on the top and on the side of the cardboard.

Preparing a painting for transportation will require a different approach. You can buy special boxes for painting transportation – with such box your painting will be safe during shipment – if you remember to fill the space that is left in the box with some fabric or Styrofoam to cushion any tremors on the road. In case you don’t have a box like that, you may ship a painting without it, enclosed in bubble foil or stretch foil. Just don’t forget that the bubble foil and stretch foil shouldn’t be in contact with the painted side of your load. To ensure that won’t happen enclose the painting in some softer material (some cotton fabric like a bed sheet) before wrapping it in bubble foil.

When it comes to putting the cargo in a transporting vehicle, a painting must be transported upward. With every piece of art make sure that the cargo won’t tip over during shipment or that some other load won’t crash into it during such event as a sudden turn.
