Let us make a complicated process simple and get your treasured artwork to its destination safely.

Whether selling an art piece or shipping your favorite, unique painting to your new home address, shipping canvases and artwork can be a hassle. This hassle is especially true if you are shipping artwork cross-country. But it doesn’t have to be. With the proper planning or opting to use a professional shipping company like Pack-N-Send – movers, you could take a potential headache and make it into an easily doable task. Here’s how we ship art, and why you should let us help make it simple for you.

Here are some of the things to Consider.

What kind of art are you shipping? Are you just moving the art across the street or across the country?Will your art fit in your vehicle or do you need to have the artwork picked up for packing? After answering these questions, you will have a better idea of how long it will take, how much it should cost, and what packing materials are needed.

For a small framed picture that is valued at less than $500, bubble wrap the picture and ship inside of a box. For more expensive or large artwork, we recommend using a custom-built box or a custom-built crate. Lining the box or crate with one inch of Styrofoam all around the inside of the box or crate will help protect it during shipping.  You can wrap your artwork in bubble wrap before you load it into the box.

A custom-built crate is needed when the artwork is either high value or is large enough to ship via freight. Do not forget to put runners on the bottom of the crate so that the crate can move on a forklift when it is being loaded or unloaded on the freight truck.  We recommend asking for a liftgate truck and an appointment for the freight delivery. That way you can make sure that you are there in order to receive the freight. A signature at the delivery is also recommended, So that you can inspect the crate for any damage when the crate arrives – Do not sign free and clear until you have inspected the contents of the crate.

The advice listed above applies even if you are shipping and receiving a sculpture or other delicate items.
