Art transportation

Art transportation is sometimes difficult and should be planned cautiously before first arrangements are made. First of all, every branch of art (sometimes every piece) needs different ways of preparing for transportation. The art category is very varied, you will find there a wide variety of things from paintings and engravings to sculptures, art installations and so on.

Art is usually really breakable and therefore is prone to damages. What’s more most of the art pieces are unconventional in shape as well as dimensions, so transporting it via courier is out of the question. And lastly art is an expensive load, so it’s crucial to choose a professional transport provider and the best way of securing the art for transportation. That excludes post office and most couriers – services where you don’t get to speak to the person who is going to be directly responsible for shipping your cargo.

Art is considered to be delicate load. You should put such sign on the box, to make sure that the transport provider know to be extra gentle while transporting it. When preparing an art piece for transportation you will encounter an issue of packaging. With items bought in a store you receive 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 there is no original packaging – you have to secure it on your own.

How to choose the safest way to secure art for shipment? It depends on a piece you want to ship. When it comes to sculptures and pottery it’s important to select a cardboard that could fit it. The box shouldn’t be too big – any empty space left between the box and the art may lead to destroying the cargo during shipment. If the art piece you are transporting have any elements that can be removed, make sure to ship them separately. Enclose every part of the art in bubble wrap and gently place it in the box. If there is any empty space left in the box, fill it with more bubble foil and Styrofoam. Don’t forget to place a “fragile” sign both on the top as well as on the side of the cardboard.

Securing a painting to be shipped will require a different approach. You can buy boxes dedicated for painting transportation – if you have one of those, your painting will be safe during shipment – just don’t forget to fill the empty space with some fabric or Styrofoam to cushion any vibrations during shipment. If you do not possess a box like that, you may ship a painting without a box, enclosed in bubble foil and stretch foil. Just don’t forget that the bubble wrap or stretch foil shouldn’t touch the painted side of your load. To avoid that wrap the painting in some softer material (a piece of cotton fabric like a bed sheet) before enclosing it in bubble wrap.

As for placing the load in a shipping vehicle, a painting must be shipped upward. With both paintings and sculptures make sure your load will not be able to fall over during transportation and that some other load won’t bump into it during for example a sudden turn.
