April 13, 2007, Newsletter Issue #59: Choosing an Art Shipping Agent

Tip of the Week

Sometimes, you may need to ship a work of art that has significant importance, size, or value. If you don't trust such a work to your standard shipping methods, it may be worth hiring a company that specializes in shipping art.

Get several quotes for this work -- it is expensive enough to merit shopping around, but the lowest price may not provide the best protection for your art. An experienced art shipper will be able to answer all your questions about crating, packing, climate control, and communication during transit.

It may be especially useful to consider an agent for shipping art internationally. A reputable art shipping company will be able to meet other countries' requirements for customs, crating, and paperwork.
