While it may not be a big hassle to ship and crate small paintings, prints, and photos, at least for those who have already done it before, to ship large and heavy art pieces is always a challenge. First of all, large crates are difficult to build and hard to carry. Secondly, even though oversized artworks seem strong and durable, they are usually highly vulnerable to damage. So the question is, how to ship and crate large art pieces so that they arrive at the destination intact? There is only one right answer to this question: you need to hire experienced art shippers for this job!
