The transportation of works of art to exhibitions or to private homes is an issue that requires a lot of attention, as they are usually items of great financial or sentimental value. That is why securing paintings and sculptures before shipping is so important.
To order this type of transport on Clicktrans, list your items in the appropriate category. Then you can be sure that the cargo will be handled with the appropriate care by the carrier. If you want the company to pack a painting or sculpture, add this information in the "Special precautionary instructions" or "Additional information" sections; you can also determine this by exchanging messages with the carriers under the offer.
If you want to secure the work of art for transportation yourself, remember a few important tips. Bubble wrap is great for protecting surfaces against mechanical damage. If you pack the painting with it, the foil must not come into contact with the painted surface, so it is a good idea to wrap the painting in another, more delicate material, e.g. a sheet. If you want to transport an artwork, such as a sculpture, in a box or cardboard box, be sure to fill the gaps between the artwork and the sides of the box. You can use special polystyrene or plastic fillers for this, but crumpled scraps of paper, for example newspaper, will also work. It is important that the box is only slightly larger than the transported item to avoid it bouncing around inside the package.
