Art transportation

Art shipping can be tricky and should be planned precisely before any preparations are made. First of all, every field of art (in some cases every piece) needs different ways of preparing for transportation. The art subsection is quite diverse, you can find there a wide array of items from drawings or engravings to pottery, art installations and much more.

Art is almost always really breakable and can be easily damaged. Other than that many art pieces are atypical in shape as well as dimensions, so transporting it by courier often not an option. Finaly art is a costly cargo, so it’s crucial to choose a reliable hauler and the best way of preparing the art for transportation. That excludes post office and most couriers – services where you cannot work out the details of the transportation with the person who will be the one transporting your cargo.

Art is thought of as fragile load. You ought to remember to place ”fragile” sign on the box, so that the hauler know to be especially gentle while transporting it. When preparing an art piece for shipment you will encounter an issue of packing the cargo. When you buy something in a store you receive an original box which in the future you can use to for transportation (e.g. that goes for electronics). However when it comes to art you don’t have any original box – you need to secure it by yourself.

What is the safest way to pack art for transportation? It varies depending on what piece you wish to ship. When it comes to sculptures or 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 lead to damaging the cargo during transportation. If the art piece you are transporting have any elements that can be removed, remember to transport them separately. Enclose every part of the art in bubble wrap and gently place the cargo in the cardboard. If there is any space left between the load and the cardboard, fill it with some bubble foil and pieces of cloth. Remember to put a “fragile” sticker both on the top as well as on the side of the box.

Preparing a painting to be shipped will look a little different. There are boxes dedicated for painting transportation – if you have one of those, your painting should be secured during transportation – just remember to fill the empty space with some cloths and Styrofoam to absorb any tremors on the road. If you don’t have such box, you may ship a painting without it, wrapped in bubble wrap or stretch foil. Just remember that the bubble wrap or stretch foil shouldn’t touch the painted side of your load. To ensure that won’t happen enclose the cargo in some softer material (a piece of cotton fabric or even a bed sheet) before enclosing it in bubble wrap.

When it comes to placing the load in a transporting vehicle, a painting should be shipped vertically. With both paintings and sculptures make sure your load will not be able to tip over during shipment and that some other load won’t bump into it in case of such event as a sudden turn.
