Art transportation

Art shipping is sometimes tricky and should be thought through precisely before any arrangements are made. For one, every field of art (sometimes every piece) requires different ways of securing for shipment. The art subsection is really varied, you may find there a big array of things from paintings or engravings to pottery, art installations and so on.

Art is almost always very breakable and can be easily damaged. Moreover many art pieces are unconventional in shape as well as size, therefore shipping it via post office often out of the question. Finaly art is a costly load, which makes it crucial to choose a trustworthy transport provider and the best way of preparing the art for transportation. That excludes post office and most couriers – services where you cannot speak to the person who is going to be directly responsible for shipping your load.

Art is what we consider delicate cargo. You ought to put ”fragile” sign on the box, to make sure that the transport provider is especially gentle when shipping it. While securing an art piece for shipment you will encounter a problem of packing the cargo. With items bought in a store you receive an original box which in the future you can use to for transportation (for example that goes for electronics). But with art there is no original packaging – you need to secure it on your own.

What is the safest way to pack art for shipment? It varies depending on what piece you wish to ship. With sculptures and pottery it is crucial to select a cardboard that could fit it. The cardbard cannot be much bigger than the load – any room left between the cardboard and the art can be the cause of destroying the art during transportation. If the shipped art piece have any removable elements, remember to transport them on their own. Wrap the whole piece in bubble foil and gently place it in the cardboard. If there is some space left between the load and the cardboard, fill it with some bubble foil and Styrofoam. Remember to put a ”delicate” sticker both on the top as well as on the side of the box.

Preparing a painting for shipment will require a different approach. There are special boxes for shipping paintings – if you have such box your painting will be safe during shipment – if you don’t forget to fill the empty space with some fabric or Styrofoam to absorb any tremors on the road. If you don’t have a box like that, you can ship a painting without a box, enclosed in bubble wrap or stretch foil. Just remember that the bubble wrap and stretch foil shouldn’t be in contact with the painted side of the cargo. To ensure that won’t happen enclose the painting in some soft material (some cotton fabric or even a bed sheet) prior to enclosing it in bubble foil.

When it comes to putting the load in a shipping vehicle, a painting should be transported upward. With every piece of art make sure that the cargo will not be able to fall over during shipment and that nothing will crash into it in case of such event as a sudden turn.
