Local art transportation

TV Box

While we recommend our clients to use custom built wooden crates when shipping luxury items, it is not always necessary for the local transportation of art. For example, if you need to move a framed painting within New York Metro Area (NY-NJ-PA), you can take a reliable TV Box. Yes, you heard it right: the same TV Box used for moving HD Plasma and LCD televisions. After all, if such boxes are good for fragile television sets, they are durable enough for moving most framed paintings. However, keep in mind that your painting should still be properly packed for the transportation with the use of double cardboard, special blankets, and glass tape, while the box itself should be custom fitted to provide the required cushioning. If you do everything right, such a packaging will be virtually like the wooden crate.

Please note that this method is not suitable for shipping art and antiques internationally. In such a case, a custom built wooden crate is still the best way to provide the required level of protection in transit. The same applies to the situations when you need to move unique, expensive, rare, and valuable items. For this purpose, always hire trustworthy New York art movers who offer professional packing and crating services. From marble sculptures to Old Master paintings, we will deliver any of your possessions safe and sound!
