Major Types of Art Shipping Crates

Shipping artwork overseas is always a challenge, even if you have already done it before. Moreover, since every piece of art is unique in its shape, size, medium, and specifications, to use the same transportation method each time is a bad idea. The truth is shipping artwork internationally is a big chore that requires certain skills and knowledge, not to mention time for proper preparation and packaging. This is where Fine Art Shippers come into play!

From finding the right packing materials to choosing the most reliable mode of transport, our trained team of art handlers is always ready to help. However, when it comes to the safe transportation of oversized and very fragile items, the most important service we can offer is building durable art shipping crates. Whether you need to transport large sculptures, antique furniture, Old Master paintings, treasured family heirlooms, or anything in between, Fine Art Shippers can provide you with the best packing and crating solution that will meet all your needs and expectations. Moreover, we will do it within your budget, so no need to worry about any extra fees or charges!
