Art transportation

Art transportation is sometimes tricky and ought to be planned cautiously before first arrangements are made. Firstly, every field of art (sometimes every piece) needs different ways of securing for shipment. The art subsection is very varied, you will find there a wide variety of things from paintings and engravings to pottery, art installations and much more.

Art is almost always very fragile and therefore can be easily damaged. What’s more many art pieces are atypical in shape and dimensions, so transporting it via courier is out of the question. Finaly art is an expensive load, so it’s very important to choose a trustworthy transport provider and the best way of securing 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 thought of as delicate load. You should remember to place such sign on the package, so that the hauler know to be especially careful when shipping it. While preparing an art piece for shipment there is an issue of packing the cargo. When you buy something from a store you receive an original box which in the future you can use to for transportation (e.g. that is often seen for electronics). But with art there is no original packaging – you need to take care of it on your own.

How to choose the best way to secure art for transportation? It depends on a piece you wish to transport. When it comes to sculptures and pottery it is crucial to find a cardboard that will be able to fit it. The cardbard cannot be much bigger than the load – any empty space left between the cardboard and the load may lead to damaging the load during shipment. If the shipped art piece have any elements that can be removed, make sure to transport them separately. Wrap the whole piece in bubble wrap and carefully put the cargo in the cardboard. If there is some empty space left between the load and the cardboard, fill it with some bubble foil or Styrofoam. Remember to put a “fragile” sign on the top and on the side of the cardboard.

Preparing a painting to be shipped will look a little different. There are special boxes for painting transportation – if you have such box your painting will be secured during shipment – just remember to fill the empty space with some cloths and Styrofoam to absorb any vibrations during shipment. In case you do not possess a box like that, you can transport a painting without a box, wrapped in bubble wrap and stretch foil. Just remember that the bubble foil or stretch foil cannot be in contact with the painted side of the cargo. To ensure that won’t happen wrap the cargo in some softer material (some cotton fabric or even a bed sheet) before enclosing it in bubble wrap.

When it comes to putting the load in a car, a painting should be shipped vertically. With both paintings and sculptures make sure that the cargo won’t fall over during transportation and that some other load won’t crash into it during such event as a sudden turn.
