The packing and international shipping of art and antiques has been core to PACK & SEND’s business for over 20 years. Our highly trained staff are experts in packing and shipping fine art, antiques and collectables both for international art shipping and for shipping art domestically and we have packed and shipped art from individual pieces through to whole collections. Last year alone our customers entrusted us with shipping art worth over $25m.
Our art shipping expertise means we have many repeat customers and we are proud of our high levels of personalised service when shipping fine art for our many customers. With daily collections from the auction houses and dealers of London and across the UK, we can collect the item or items requiring art shipping at a time convenient to you.
Art shipping with total peace of mind is possible with PACK & SEND. We can offer that extra peace of mind when shipping fine art through the loss or damage cover provided on our Marine Transit policy which is underwritten by one of the world’s most established antiques and art shipping underwriters. Cover can be provided to any value regardless of whether you are shipping art internationally or domestically.

I rang Mark & Anita in a panic when the shipping company I had ordered a crate from let me down at the last minute. I wish I'd just gone to them in the first place. They are professional, thorough, careful and also very lovely people to deal with. I have already passed on their details to two people, and I will certainly be using them again. I wish I could give them six stars... Click box for more
