‘Shipping fragile artworks around the globe takes a lot of care and paperwork! We were happy to find PACK & SEND who provide a personalised and effective service to get artworks to my clients with minimal effort from myself.’
PACK & SEND ship work for many respected and recognised artists, including several high-profile names, but perhaps one that has presented us with the biggest challenges is Luke Jerram; for whom PACK & SEND have been working for years.
Luke Jerram is possibly best known for Museum of the Moon – his giant moon installation – which PACK & SEND helped ship around the world for his global exhibitions and Glass Microbiology – a series of sculptures whose media is glass and whose predominant theme is the beauty and complexity of viruses at a microscopic level. To describe Luke’s works as fragile would be an understatement.
PACK & SEND’s care, attention to detail and expertise in packing and shipping particularly fragile items of high value have allowed us to ensure that Luke’s works have arrived undamaged to destinations around the world.
What made you choose PACK & SEND?
Shipping fragile artwork around the globe takes a lot of care and paperwork! We were happy to find PACK & SEND who provide a personalised and effective service to get artwork to my clients with minimal effort from myself. The larger courier companies just can’t be relied on for eliminating the worry which comes with shipping fragile artworks.
What is the best aspect of the work they did/do?
Going for the Warranty Service package means we don’t have to worry should anything go wrong. Given the fragile nature of the artworks we have inevitably had breakage of a glass sculpture during transit in the past, but PACK & SEND sorted out all of the insurance paperwork swiftly and effectively so that we could send out a replacement to the client without too much inconvenience.
How would you describe their work and culture?
Always a helpful, personalised and reliable service.
