To ship valuable and one-of-a-kind items like art, it is important to work with experts, who can ensure your pieces arrive safely. Whether a large sculpture or small painting, experienced shippers can build custom crating or box solutions to secure transport your valuable pieces.
Art comes in all shapes and sizes, and in a variety of materials, so it is important that packaging solutions are just as diverse. Building bespoke shipping solutions ensures that custom crates or custom boxes are constructed to meet the specifications of the art. This allows for the correct space to secure the piece or enclose the painting, as well as adequate room for any wrapping, packaging or special paper required for additional protection. Measurements are taken to guarantee even the most delicate porcelain statue is packaged in a crate built to be an exact fit for safe travel. Custom crating and custom box solutions for art shipping maximizes the security of the artwork by averting movement within the crate, and ensuring a strong defense against damage during transit.
One example of art that requires a sophisticated and thoughtful custom crating solution would be that of Italian Renaissance sculptor Donatello, who was famed for his marble and bronze works. To ship larger than life, and valuable sculptures like his, one would need to ensure they are packed effectively to ensure their safe arrival at their destination.
