As you know, Fine Art Shippers works with many private art collectors, reputable museums, galleries, auction houses, and public institutions, shipping luxury items across the US and internationally. Not so long ago, our team was chosen to ship fine art sold at Christie’s New York 19th Century European Art Sale on October 31. In particular, Fine Art Shippers was entrusted to pick up, pack, crate, and ship out an important painting by a famous 19th-century Russian painter Aleksey Danilovich Kivshenko. Estimated at $30,000 – 50,000, the masterwork titled “At the Kennel” was sold for an impressive $187,500, which made our task more challenging and enjoyable at the same time. Moreover, at the request of our very special client, we had to complete the job the same day. As always, everything was done on time and at the highest level of professionalism possible. After all, secure art shipping is not only our business but our passion too, and we always do our best to meet and even exceed our clients’ expectations.
Secure art packing of a valuable painting
When it comes to moving luxury art, it is of utmost importance to ensure that the item is properly packed, with the use of only high-quality materials. From wrapping to crating, every step is essential and should be treated with care, attention, and seriousness. For example, for packing the mentioned above Aleksey Kivshenko’s painting, we used special wrapping, moving blankets, and cardboard. Plus, we built a secure wooden crate for it, designed to protect the masterwork during the entire process of transportation. As a result, such a packaging could literally withstand a drop from the 3rd floor, which is very important, taking in account that many air cargo carriers treat fine art items with disregard for their value and rarity.
In general, if the job is done right, there is no reason to worry about the safety of even a multi-million painting. So if you want to ensure that your valuable acquisitions are delivered to their destination intact, to hire a professional fine art shipping company like Fine Art Shippers is a wise decision. As for our team, we are looking forward to further working with auction houses and shipping luxury items to our clients throughout the world.
