Art transportation

Art shipping can be tricky and have to be thought through cautiously before any arrangements are made. First of all, every branch of art (sometimes every piece) needs its own ways of preparing for shipment. The art category is quite differentiated, you may find there a huge array of items from paintings or engravings to sculptures, 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 as well as dimensions, therefore transporting it by courier often out of the question. And lastly art is a costly load, which makes it crucial to select a trustworthy transport provider and the safest way of preparing the art for transportation. That again exclude post office and most couriers – services where you cannot speak to the person who will be directly responsible for shipping your load.

Art is considered to be fragile load. You have to remember to place such tag on the package, to make sure that the hauler is extra gentle when shipping it. While securing a piece of art for shipment you will encounter a problem of packing the cargo. With items bought 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 electronics). However with art there is no original packaging – you have to take care of it on your own.

What is the best way to pack art for transportation? It varies depending on what piece of art you wish to transport. When it comes to sculptures and 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 empty space left between the box and the load may be the cause of damaging the load during transportation. If the art piece you are transporting have any removable elements, you should make sure to ship them separately. Wrap the whole piece in bubble foil and gently place the cargo in the cardboard. If there is any empty space left between the load and the cardboard, fill it with some bubble foil and Styrofoam. Don’t forget to put a ”delicate” sticker both on the top and on the side of the cardboard.

Preparing a painting to be shipped will require a different approach. There are special boxes for painting transportation – with one of those, your painting should be secured during shipment – if you don’t forget to fill the empty space with some fabric or Styrofoam to absorb any vibrations on the road. In case you do not possess a box like that, you may transport a painting without it, enclosed in bubble foil and stretch foil. Just remember that the bubble foil and stretch foil shouldn’t touch the painted side of the cargo. To avoid that enclose the painting in some soft material (a piece of cotton fabric like a bed sheet) prior to wrapping it in bubble wrap.

When it comes to placing the cargo in a car, a painting must be transported vertically. With both paintings and sculptures make sure that the cargo will not be able to tip over during transportation and that nothing will bump into it during for example a sudden turn.
