Art transportation

Art transportation is sometimes tricky and have to be planned carefully before any preparations are made. First of all, every field of art (in some cases every piece) requires its own ways of securing for transportation. The art section is quite varied, you may find there a wide collection of items from paintings or engravings to pottery, art installations and much more.

Art is usually very breakable and therefore is prone to damages. Other than that many art pieces are unconventional in shape and dimensions, so shipping it with help of a courier is not an option. Finaly art is a costly cargo, so it’s very important to select a trustworthy hauler and the best way of securing the art for transportation. 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 shipping your load.

Art is what we consider fragile load. You ought to remember to place such sign on the package, to make sure that the hauler is especially gentle while shipping it. When securing an art piece for transportation there is a problem of packing the cargo. When you buy something in a store you receive a package which in the future you can use to for transportation (e.g. that goes for household appliances). However with art you don’t have any original box – you have to secure it by yourself.

What is the best way to secure art for transportation? It depends on a piece you want to transport. 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 cardboard and the load can be the cause of destroying the art during transportation. If the art piece you are transporting have any elements that can be removed, you should make sure to ship them on their own. Wrap the whole piece in bubble wrap and carefully put it in the cardboard. If there is some empty space left in the box, fill it with some bubble wrap or pieces of cloth. Don’t forget to put a “fragile” sticker on the top and on the side of the cardboard.

Preparing a painting for shipment will look a little different. There are boxes dedicated for transporting paintings – if you have such box your painting will be secured during transportation – if you remember to fill the empty space with some fabric and Styrofoam to cushion any tremors during shipment. If you don’t have such box, you may ship a painting without it, enclosed in bubble wrap or stretch foil. As long as you 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 wrap the painting in some softer material (some cotton fabric like a bed sheet) before wrapping it in bubble wrap.

When it comes to putting the cargo in a transporting vehicle, a painting must be transported vertically. With both paintings and sculptures make sure that the cargo will not be able to fall over during shipment or that some other load won’t bump into it in case of such event as a sudden turn.
