UNIQUELY SKILLED TO HANDLE ARTWORK
Sculpture Shipping Services
We know you have choice when it comes to selecting a company for packaging and shipping sculptures. As you evaluate providers, it is important to keep in mind that 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 expertise 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.
