If you are new to shipping fine art overseas, most likely you will start with learning some tips on how to transport artwork safely and securely. There are many guidelines and much useful information on this matter online, so it won’t be a big problem to get the answers to all your questions. What you will find out is that proper packaging is the most important thing to pay attention to. Another obvious truth is that it is always better to ship multiple paintings separately in different boxes. Unfortunately, the latter is not always possible. Due to the cost of such shipment, not every artist or collector can afford this method of art transportation even if it is the safest one. So what is the way out? We have a solution for you!
How to Ship Multiple Paintings Overseas?
At Fine Art Shippers, we have been serving artists and collectors for many years, and over this time, we have developed a whole range of different packing techniques to satisfy any need and budget. If you need to ship multiple paintings overseas but have a limited budget, the best way to do it right is to ship them together in a custom wooden crate. Such a crate should be built in full accordance with the shipping requirements of the artworks being transported and reinforced with foam inside. Besides, it should be built using special wood that is allowed for air transportation.
Another important thing here is that every single painting should be properly packed first and only then placed in a crate. Keep in mind that this method will work only if you are shipping paintings of the same size. Also, it is not suitable for shipping large artworks. Oversized paintings require individual crates, as they are more susceptible to damage.
If you are looking for the safest and yet cost-effective way to ship multiple paintings overseas, do not hesitate to contact Fine Art Shippers. We will find the right solution to suit both your needs and your budget!
