Frequently Asked Fine Art Shipping Questions

To help ensure the safe transit of your sculpture or painting, custom packaging and crating are highly advisable. Utilize materials such as bubble wrap, cardboard, foam, packaging tape, and acid-free paper for optimal protection. However, exercise caution when using bubble wrap directly on a painting's surface, as it may transfer onto the artwork.

When shipping artwork internationally, meticulous planning is essential. An international art shipping company can assist with transportation methods, packaging, insurance, customs, and documentation.

Before packaging, evaluate and document the current condition of your artwork or sculpture, including photographs. These will serve as references in case of damage during transit. Additionally, create a packaging list detailing descriptions, values, materials, and use fragile labels on your packaging for added protection.

The HS Code for paintings is generally 9701 and the HS Code for sculptures is generally 9703.
