Art Shipping FAQs

How much does it cost to ship artwork?

The total cost to ship artwork with a professional shipping company like TSI depends on how many pieces you have to move, how far they will travel, and any special considerations your shipping partner will need to keep in mind.

We highly recommend adding insurance to any artwork shipment at an additional cost of $6 per $100 of value.

How do I ship framed artwork safely?

The safest way to pack paintings, including stretched canvas or framed paintings, is in a properly sized crate. Professional shipping providers like TSI will offer special crating services for all of your fragile and expensive pieces of art. For detailed instructions on how to properly pack artwork yourself, read our “How Do I Ship Paintings?” guide.

How do I ship a sculpture?

There are many ways to ship a sculpture. The best method depends on the size and value of the piece, as well as any special considerations unique to your sculpture. Learn more about your options for shipping sculpture in our “How Do I Ship Sculpture?” guide. 

Regardless of which shipping method you choose, the most challenging aspect of shipping sculpture is packing it properly. TSI’s sculpture shipping service includes professional packing and crating, as well as indoor pickup and delivery to ensure your heavy, bulky, or fragile pieces arrive safely and in one piece.


Is extra insurance available for shipping art?

Yes, extra insurance is available for fine art shipments, including paintings and sculptures. All art shipments transported by TSI include federally mandated limited liability coverage, which pays out at 60 cents per pound. For high-value, one-of-a-kind, original, or highly sentimental artwork, we strongly recommend purchasing supplemental insurance.
