Art transportation

Art shipping is sometimes tricky and therefore ought to be planned precisely before first preparations are made. For one, every field of art (sometimes every piece) requires different ways of securing for shipment. The art section is really differentiated, you will find there a huge variety of things from paintings and engravings to sculptures, art installations and so on.

Art is almost always very breakable and therefore is prone to damages. What’s more most of the art pieces are unconventional in shape as well as size, so shipping it by courier often not an option. And lastly art is a costly cargo, which makes it very important to find a professional transport provider and the safest way of preparing the art for transportation. That again exclude post office and most couriers – services where you cannot work out the details of the transportation with the person who will be the one transporting your load.

Art is what we consider fragile cargo. You must remember to place ”fragile” tag on the box, to make sure that the hauler know to be extra careful when transporting it. When preparing an art piece for shipment there is a problem of packaging. When you buy something in a store you get an original box that can be used for shipping the item in the future (for example that is often seen for household appliances). But with art you don’t have any original packaging – you have to take care of it on your own.

What is the best way to secure art for transportation? It varies depending on what piece you want to ship. When it comes to sculptures or pottery the most important thing is to select a box that will be able to fit it. The box shouldn’t be too big – any room left between the cardboard and the art can be the cause of damaging the art during transportation. If the shipped art piece have any elements that can be removed, make sure to ship them on their own. Enclose the whole piece in bubble wrap and gently place the cargo in the box. If there is some empty space left between the load and the cardboard, fill it with some bubble foil and pieces of cloth. Remember to place a “fragile” sticker both on the top and on the side of the box.

Securing a painting to be shipped 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 or Styrofoam to absorb any vibrations during shipment. In case you do not possess such box, you may transport a painting without it, wrapped in bubble foil or stretch foil. Just remember that the bubble foil or stretch foil shouldn’t come into contact with the painted side of the cargo. To avoid that wrap the painting in some softer material (some cotton fabric or even a bed sheet) prior to enclosing it in bubble foil.

As for placing the cargo in a transporting vehicle, a painting must be shipped upward. With every piece of art make sure that the cargo won’t tip over during shipment and that nothing will crash into it during for example a sudden turn.
