Packing sculptures for shipping – Art packing part 4
Part four of our mini-series of packing art from start to finish involves packing large irregularly shaped items such as sculptures.
Shipping sculptures internationally and in the UK requires specialist preparation and planning to give them the best opportunity of arriving safely at their destination, and the correct method of packing plays a big part in this.
A wooden crate needs to be designed and built to exact dimensions incorporating struts and foam padding to keep the work upright and protected from impacts during its journey. The video above shows perfectly what is involved.
Over the weeks we have been sharing videos involving different types of art packing available from tri-wall cases to large plywood A-framed crates. Each video offers a guide for how each is prepared.
Robust and appropriate art packing is critical for insurance cover and the safety of your precious art investment – for more information on our packing services click HERE
