Art transportation

Art shipping is sometimes tricky and therefore should be planned carefully before first preparations are made. For one, every branch of art (in some cases every piece) requires its own ways of securing for transportation. The art subsection is really differentiated, you can find there a wide collection of items from paintings and engravings to pottery, art installations and much more.

Art is usually really breakable and can be easily damaged. Moreover most of the art pieces are unconventional in shape as well as dimensions, therefore transporting it by courier is out of the question. Finaly art is a costly cargo, which makes it crucial to choose a trustworthy transport provider and the best 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 cargo.

Art is thought of as fragile load. You ought to remember to place ”fragile” sticker on the package, so that the hauler know to be especially gentle while transporting it. While securing a piece of art for transportation you will encounter a problem of packing the cargo. When you buy something in a store you receive a package that can be used for shipping the item in the future (for example that is often seen for household appliances). However with art you don’t have any original packaging – you need to take care of it on your own.

What is the best way to pack art for shipment? It varies depending on what piece of art you wish to ship. When it comes to sculptures or pottery it is crucial to select a box that will be able to fit it. The box cannot be much bigger than the load – any room left between the box and the art can lead to destroying the load during shipment. If the shipped art piece have any elements that can be removed, make sure to ship them on their own. Wrap every part of the art in bubble foil and gently put the cargo in the cardboard. If there is some space left in the box, fill it with some bubble foil and pieces of cloth. Remember to place a “fragile” sign both on the top and on the side of the box.

Preparing a painting for transportation will require a different approach. There are special boxes for painting transportation – if you have such box your painting should be safe during shipment – just don’t forget to fill the space that is left in the box with some cloths and Styrofoam to absorb any vibrations on the road. If you don’t have a box like that, you may ship a painting without a box, enclosed in bubble foil and stretch foil. As long as you don’t forget that the bubble wrap and stretch foil shouldn’t touch the painted side of the cargo. To ensure that won’t happen wrap the painting in some soft material (a piece of cotton fabric like a bed sheet) before enclosing it in bubble wrap.

When it comes to placing the load in a shipping vehicle, a painting must be shipped upward. With every piece of art make sure your load won’t fall over during shipment or that nothing will crash into it during for example a sudden turn.
