Art transportation

Art transportation is sometimes difficult and therefore should be planned cautiously before first preparations are made. First of all, every branch of art (sometimes every piece) needs different ways of securing for shipment. The art section is really varied, you will find there a huge collection of items from drawings or engravings to pottery, art installations and so on.

Art is usually very delicate and therefore is prone to damages. What’s more most of the art pieces are atypical in shape and size, therefore transporting it by courier often out of the question. Finaly art is an expensive load, so it’s crucial to choose a professional 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 is going to be directly responsible for shipping your cargo.

Art is what we consider delicate cargo. You must put such tag on the box, to make sure that the transport provider is extra gentle when shipping it. When securing a piece of art for transportation you will encounter an issue of packaging. With items bought from a store you receive a package that can be used for shipping the item in the future (for example that goes for electronics). But when it comes to art you don’t have any original box – you need to take care of it by yourself.

How to choose the safest way to pack art for shipment? 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 will be able to fit it. The box cannot be much bigger than the load – any room left between the box and the load may lead to damaging the cargo during transportation. If the shipped art piece have any removable elements, you should make sure to transport them separately. Enclose the whole piece in bubble foil and carefully place the cargo in the box. If there is some space left in the box, fill it with some bubble foil and pieces of cloth. Don’t forget to place a “fragile” sticker both on the top and on the side of the cardboard.

Securing a painting for shipment will look a little different. You can buy boxes dedicated for shipping paintings – if you have such box your painting should be secured during transportation – just remember to fill the empty space with some cloths and Styrofoam to cushion any tremors on the road. In case you don’t have such box, you may ship a painting without it, enclosed in bubble wrap or stretch foil. Just remember that the bubble foil or stretch foil cannot touch the painted side of the cargo. To ensure that won’t happen enclose the painting in some soft material (some cotton fabric like a bed sheet) prior to wrapping it in bubble foil.

When it comes to placing the cargo in a car, a painting must be transported upward. With every piece of art make sure your load won’t tip over during transportation or that some other load won’t crash into it in case of such event as a sudden turn.
