How do we work? Well, the process of fine art transportation is pretty challenging and requires certain knowledge and skills from everyone engaged in it. Moreover, since each artwork is unique, there are no two similar ways to prepare antiques and art of different kinds for shipping. However, in general, this process looks like the following.
Fine Art Shippers don’t simply place the artwork in the most suitable box. We understand all the problems that may occur in the transportation process and, therefore, pack each item with the utmost care to ensure it will arrive at the destination safe and sound. For this reason, we always carefully inspect the artwork first to evaluate its packing, crating, and cushioning needs.
What we consider when inspecting the artwork
- Monetary and sentimental value
- Special requirements of this particular item
- Dimensions and fragility weight
- Appropriate transportation options
- Packaging, cushioning, and container needs
- Pick-up and delivery requirements
- Country of destination
Art insurance is another important step in the art delivery process. The truth is shipping art and antiques is impossible without proper insurance coverage, so make sure your valuables are all properly insured before packing and moving them. At Fine Art Shippers, we offer a variety of art insurance options to suit any budget and need, including:
- limited liability insurance that covers lost;
- full coverage cargo based on the item’s declared value.
