Art transportation

Art transportation is sometimes difficult and ought to be thought through carefully before any arrangements are made. Firstly, every branch of art (in some cases every piece) requires different ways of preparing for shipment. The art subsection is quite diverse, you can find there a wide variety of items from paintings and engravings to pottery, art installations and so on.

Art is usually very delicate and therefore is prone to damages. Other than that most of the art pieces are unconventional in shape and size, so shipping it via courier often out of the question. And lastly art is a costly load, so it’s very important to select a trustworthy transport provider and the best way of preparing the art for shipping. That excludes post office and most couriers – services where you cannot work out the details of the transportation with the person who will be directly responsible for transporting your cargo.

Art is what we consider delicate load. You should remember to place such tag on the box, to make sure that the transport provider know to be especially gentle when shipping it. When securing an art piece for shipment there is an issue of packaging. When you buy something from a store you get an original box which in the future you can use to for transportation (e.g. that is often seen for household appliances). But when it comes to art you don’t have any original box – you need to take care of it on your own.

How to choose the safest way to pack art for transportation? It varies depending on what piece you want to ship. With sculptures or pottery it’s important to choose a box that could fit it. The box cannot be much bigger than the load – any empty space left between the box and the art can be the cause of damaging the load during shipment. If the shipped art piece have any removable elements, remember to transport them on their own. Enclose every part of the art in bubble foil and gently put the cargo in the box. If there is some empty space left between the load and the cardboard, fill it with more bubble wrap or pieces of cloth. Don’t forget to place a ”delicate” sign on the top as well as on the side of the cardboard.

Securing a painting to be shipped will look a little different. There are boxes dedicated for transporting paintings – if you have one of those, your painting should be secured during transportation – if you remember to fill the space that is left in the box with some cloths or Styrofoam to cushion any tremors on the road. If you do not possess a box like that, you may transport a painting without a box, wrapped in bubble wrap or stretch foil. As long as you don’t forget that the bubble foil and stretch foil shouldn’t come into contact with the painted side of the cargo. To avoid that enclose the cargo in some soft material (some cotton fabric or even a bed sheet) prior to wrapping it in bubble wrap.

When it comes to putting the load in a shipping vehicle, a painting should be transported vertically. With both paintings and sculptures make sure that the cargo will not be able to tip over during shipment and that nothing will crash into it during for example a sudden turn.
