Shipping art

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend shipping companies for one piece of art (a framed artist print). I don't think that the value warrants a specialist art shipping firm, but I think it may be better to ship it independently to our movecube so that the shipping company is responsible for packing it properly etc.

What’s the worst that could happen? The glass breaks. Probably cheaper to replace the glass than send it separately

Sorry mistype it is an artist print not a photo and the print could be damaged which isn't low cost to replace or the made to measure frame could be damaged.

I packed a few prints and some original art for my son. Wrapped in bubble wrap and then boxed (I made a box to fit from a TV box ). They went in a move cube with the rest of his things.  We made sure it was packed tight and filled gaps with pillows and towels so nothing could move.  Everything arrived just fine.

Would be keen to know if anyone has used specialist print/art moving companies?? We have some art (boxed canvas paintings, and framed glass prints) that will need to be packed/shipped carefully.
