In some instances, a custom made corrugated container will provide outstanding protection, while high value, antique or fragile paintings may require a custom designed wood crate

Sculptures

Packaging, Crating, & Shipping Sculptures

We know you have choice when it comes to selecting a company for packaging and shipping sculptures. Transporting valuable, fragile, oversized or awkward  artwork. Many internet based and retail pack and ship centers don't have the knowledge or expertise to handle one-of-a-kind items that require special knowledge and attention. In fact, many shipping agencies use prefabricated boxes and if your item fits, it ships! This method may work for everyday items, but not an original artwork such as a glass or hand-carved statue.
