Packing & Shipping Services for Auction Houses

With a growing number of international customers who are regular buyers of art and antiques from the UK, PACK & SEND are proving more and more to be the ideal option for the collection of high value art and antiques from UK auction houses.


Our expertise in the high quality export packing of art and antiques along with our broad range of international shipping options means we can provide a solution for buyers and auction houses alike for their international packing and shipping requirements – whether that be for a single work of art or antique or whether it be for an entire collection that requires consolidating, professional packing and then shipping.

Our knowledge of international customs clearance processes and in particular our expertise in areas such as CITES controlled items or antique weapons means that we can manage even the most complex of shipments.

PACK & SEND’s professional packers have years of experience in handling even the most delicate and fragile of items including fine porcelain and clays, glassware, plaster and highly ornate figurines and statues. All our export crates are made to ISPM 15 standard and for the more delicate items are lined with our unique aerated foam cushioning product.

For those items of high value and antiquity PACK & SEND can put in place cover against loss or damage whilst in transit for any value – either for a single item or a whole collection – prior to their international shipment.

We make regular collections from many auction houses including Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Bonhams as well as regional auctioneers such as Woolley & Wallis, Dreweatts, Mallams, The Cotswold Auction Company, and Morphets to name but a few.

Packing & Shipping for Private Art & Antique Collectors

PACK & SEND can make the packing and shipping of art or antiques easy and simple for private individuals and collectors. You do not need to have an account with us and can take advantage of the years of experience that have made us the choice of artists, dealers and auction houses for the collection, packing and international shipment of even the most valuable or fragile works.

You may be a collector who is wishing to send artwork overseas for exhibition or sale or an international buyer who has purchased an item or entire collection and wishes to have it collected, professionally packed and international shipped.

As your one point of contact PACK & SEND will organise the collection of the works, export packing and international shipment for you and, should you wish for that extra peace of mind, can put in place cover against loss or damage for any item no matter how fragile or valuable.
