UNIQUELY SKILLED TO HANDLE ARTWORK
Sculpture Shipping Services
We know you have choice when it comes to selecting a company for packaging and shipping sculptures. As you evaluate providers, it is important to keep in mind that many internet-based and retail pack and ship centers don’t have the knowledge or expertise to handle one-of-a-kind items that require special expertise and attention. In fact, many shipping agencies use prefabricated boxes and if your item fits, it ships! This method may work for everyday items, but not an original artwork such as a glass or hand-carved statue. Read here how we build wooden crates for shipping art.
Don’t trust shipping a sculpture to just anyone. Call the experts!
We don’t just place your artwork in a box or provide you with do-it-yourself packaging materials and a shipping label. Craters & Freighters provides services that are tailored to your item’s specific needs to ensure safe and secure packaging and shipping.
How to Ship a Sculpture
The value, pickup, delivery, insurance requirements, and your budget will determine what type of container is used. In some instances, a custom-made corrugated container will provide sufficient protection, while high-value, antique, or fragile sculptures may require a custom-designed wood crate.
When you call one of our 65+ nationwide locations for a quote, you can anticipate the following questions:
- What are the sculpture’s dimensions and weight?
- What is the sculpture’s medium (wood, bronze, glass etc.)?
- Is the sculpture uniquely fragile or ornate?
- What is the sculpture’s value?
- Where is the sculpture being picked up?
- What is the sculpture’s final destination?
- Where will it be delivered? A residence or business?
- Does the sculpture require insurance?
- When does the sculpture need to be picked up and delivered?
