Art transportation

Art transportation is sometimes tricky and should be planned carefully before first preparations are made. First of all, every field of art (in some cases every piece) needs its own ways of securing for shipment. The art subsection is quite differentiated, you will find there a huge variety of items from paintings and engravings to sculptures, art installations and much more.

Art is usually really breakable and can be easily damaged. Moreover many art pieces are unconventional in shape and dimensions, therefore shipping it via courier often out of the question. And lastly art is a costly load, so it’s crucial to choose a trustworthy transport provider and the best way of preparing the art for transportation. That excludes post office and most couriers – companies where you cannot work out the details of the transportation with the person who will be directly responsible for transporting your load.

Art is what we consider delicate load. You must put such sticker on the box, so that the transport provider know to be especially gentle while transporting it. When preparing a piece of art for transportation you will encounter a problem of packing the cargo. With items bought from a store you get an original box that can be used for shipping the item in the future (e.g. that is often seen for household appliances). However with art you don’t have any original packaging – you need to secure it on your own.

How to choose the safest way to pack art for shipment? It varies depending on what piece you wish to ship. When it comes to sculptures and pottery the most important thing is to choose a box that could fit it. The cardbard shouldn’t be too big – any room left between the box and the load can be the cause of destroying the art during shipment. If the shipped art piece have any removable elements, remember to transport them on their own. Enclose the whole piece in bubble foil and carefully place the cargo in the box. If there is any empty space left between the load and the cardboard, fill it with some bubble foil and pieces of cloth. Don’t forget to put a ”delicate” sticker both on the top and on the side of the cardboard.

Securing a painting to be shipped will require a different approach. You can buy special boxes for transporting paintings – with one of those, your painting will be secured during transportation – just remember to fill the space that is left in the box with some fabric and Styrofoam to absorb any tremors on the road. If you do not possess such box, you can ship a painting without it, wrapped in bubble foil or stretch foil. As long as you remember that the bubble foil or stretch foil cannot come into contact with the painted side of your load. To ensure that won’t happen enclose the painting in some soft material (a piece of cotton fabric or even a bed sheet) prior to wrapping it in bubble foil.

When it comes to putting the cargo in a transporting vehicle, a painting should be transported upward. With every piece of art make sure your load won’t tip over during transportation or that nothing will crash into it during such event as a sudden turn.
