Art transportation

Art shipping can be tricky and therefore should be thought through carefully before any preparations are made. For one, every field of art (sometimes every piece) needs different ways of securing for shipment. The art category is really differentiated, you may find there a huge array of things from drawings and engravings to pottery, art installations and so on.

Art is almost always very delicate and therefore can be easily damaged. Other than that many art pieces are atypical in shape as well as size, therefore transporting it via courier often not an option. Finaly art is a costly cargo, so it’s crucial to find a trustworthy transport provider and the best way of securing the art for shipping. That excludes post office and most couriers – companies where you cannot speak to the person who is going to be directly responsible for shipping your load.

Art is what we consider delicate cargo. You ought to put ”fragile” tag on the package, so that the transport provider know to be extra gentle when transporting it. While securing an art piece for shipment there is an issue of packaging. When you buy something from a store you receive a package which in the future you can use to for transportation (for example that goes for household appliances). But with art you don’t have any original packaging – you need to take care of it by yourself.

How to choose the best way to secure art for shipment? It depends on a piece you wish to transport. With sculptures and pottery it’s important to select a cardboard that could fit it. The cardbard shouldn’t be too big – any room left between the cardboard and the art can lead to damaging the art during shipment. If the shipped art piece have any elements that can be removed, you should make sure to transport them separately. Enclose every part of the art 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 more bubble wrap or Styrofoam. Don’t forget to place a ”delicate” sign both on the top as well as on the side of the box.

Securing a painting for transportation will look a little different. There are boxes dedicated for shipping paintings – if you have one of those, your painting should be safe during transportation – if you remember to fill the empty space with some cloths or Styrofoam to absorb any tremors on the road. In case you don’t have a box like that, you may ship a painting without a box, wrapped in bubble wrap and stretch foil. Just remember that the bubble wrap or stretch foil shouldn’t be in contact with the painted side of your load. To avoid that wrap the painting in some softer material (a piece of cotton fabric or even a bed sheet) before wrapping it in bubble wrap.

As for putting the load in a transporting vehicle, a painting should be shipped vertically. With every piece of art make sure your load will not be able to tip over during transportation and that nothing will bump into it in case of for example a sudden turn.
