Art transportation

Art shipping is sometimes difficult and therefore should be thought through precisely before first preparations are made. Firstly, every branch of art (sometimes every piece) needs different ways of preparing for shipment. The art section is very diverse, you can find there a big array of items from drawings and engravings to pottery, art installations and much more.

Art is usually very delicate and therefore is prone to damages. What’s more many art pieces are unconventional in shape and size, so shipping it by courier is out of the question. Finaly art is a costly load, which makes it very important to select a trustworthy hauler and the safest way of preparing the art for shipping. That again exclude post office and most couriers – companies where you don’t get to speak to the person who is going to be the one transporting your cargo.

Art is what we consider fragile cargo. You must remember to place ”fragile” sign on the package, to make sure that the transport provider is especially careful when transporting it. While preparing an art piece for transportation there is an issue of packing the cargo. When you buy something from a store you get a package that can be used for shipping the item in the future (e.g. that is often seen for household appliances). But with art you don’t have any original packaging – you have to take care of it by yourself.

What is the safest way to pack art for transportation? It depends on a piece of art you wish to ship. When it comes to sculptures and pottery it’s important to choose a box that could fit it. The cardbard shouldn’t be too big – any empty space left between the box and the art can be the cause of destroying the art during transportation. If the shipped art piece have any removable elements, make sure to transport them separately. Enclose every part of the art in bubble wrap and gently put it in the box. If there is any space left between the load and the cardboard, fill it with more bubble wrap or pieces of cloth. Don’t forget to place a “fragile” sign on the top as well as on the side of the box.

Preparing a painting for shipment will require a different approach. You can buy special boxes for shipping paintings – with such box your painting should be secured during shipment – if you remember to fill the empty space with some cloths and Styrofoam to cushion any vibrations during shipment. If you don’t have a box like that, you may transport a painting without a box, wrapped in bubble wrap or stretch foil. As long as you remember 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) prior to wrapping it in bubble foil.

When it comes to placing the cargo in a shipping vehicle, a painting must be transported upward. With both paintings and sculptures make sure your load won’t fall over during shipment or that some other load won’t bump into it in case of for example a sudden turn.
