Art transportation

Art shipping can be tricky and have to be planned cautiously before first arrangements are made. Firstly, every branch of art (in some cases every piece) needs different ways of preparing for shipment. The art category is very diverse, you can find there a huge array of things from drawings or engravings to sculptures, art installations and much more.

Art is usually very breakable and can be easily damaged. What’s more most of the art pieces are unconventional in shape as well as size, so transporting it with help of a courier often out of the question. Finaly art is a costly cargo, so it’s crucial to select a professional hauler and the safest way of preparing the art for shipping. That excludes post office and most couriers – companies where you don’t get to speak to the person who is going to be directly responsible for transporting your load.

Art is thought of as fragile cargo. You have to remember to place ”fragile” tag on the box, to make sure that the transport provider know to be extra careful when shipping it. While preparing an art piece for shipment there is an issue of packing the cargo. When you buy something in a store you receive an original box that can be used for shipping the item in the future (e.g. that is often seen for electronics). However with art you don’t have any original box – you need to take care of it by yourself.

How to choose the safest way to secure art for transportation? It varies depending on what piece of art you want to transport. When it comes to sculptures or pottery it is crucial to select a cardboard that will be able to fit it. The box shouldn’t be too big – any room left between the box and the art can be the cause of damaging the cargo during transportation. If the art piece you are transporting have any elements that can be removed, you should make sure to ship them on their own. Wrap every part of the art in bubble wrap and carefully place the cargo in the cardboard. If there is some empty space left in the box, fill it with some bubble foil and pieces of cloth. Remember to put a ”delicate” sticker both on the top and on the side of the box.

Preparing a painting to be shipped will require a different approach. You can buy special boxes for shipping paintings – with such box your painting should be secured during shipment – if you don’t forget to fill the space that is left in the box with some fabric or Styrofoam to absorb any tremors on the road. In case you do not possess such box, you can transport a painting without it, wrapped in bubble wrap and stretch foil. As long as you remember that the bubble foil and stretch foil cannot touch the painted side of your load. To avoid that enclose the cargo 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 load in a car, a painting should be shipped upward. With both paintings and sculptures make sure your load won’t fall over during shipment or that some other load won’t crash into it in case of such event as a sudden turn.
