Packing & Shipping Services for Artists
PACK & SEND’s expertise in the packing and international shipping or domestic delivery of artworks, sculptures and ceramic works make us an ideal choice for artists. Whether you have sold a single piece directly to a customer and need to ensure safe collection, professional packing and shipment to your customer or have a requirement to pack and ship multiple pieces to an exhibition we can help.
We work directly with hundreds of artists and sculptors and have helped to ensure the secure and safe collection, packing and international shipment of the works over many years.
We can arrange for all international deliveries to be delivered directly to your customer’s door and can provide full customs clearance services. All shipments require a signature upon delivery in order that you know when it was delivered and who it was who received it.
For exhibitions we can collect multiple works from multiple locations and arrange for the entire collection to be professionally packed by our packers and then shipped to the exhibition – we handle a large number of major international exhibitions every year.
For large collections being shipped internationally for exhibitions we can ship the works on our international air services or, for greater economy, on our international sea freight service.
At the end of the exhibition we can arrange for the works to be collected and then imported to the UK and delivered to you.
No matter how fragile or valuable your work our expert packers and knowledge of international shipping along with our broad range of international shipping solutions means we will be able to put a solution together for you.
Our unique foam cushioning product is ideal for the shipment of highly fragile and delicate works such as fine glass, ceramics or porcelain and our crating is all to ISPM 15 standards providing extra external protection.
For that extra piece of mind we can put in place cover against the unlikely loss or damage of any work or collection of any value for international shipping or domestic delivery.
Here is just some of the artists for whom we have handled international shipments
