Shipping art safely and reliably

Artwork can be fragile, bulky, and extremely valuable, and that makes it tough to transport. TSI’s fine art shipping experts can help. We specialize in creating custom solutions for moving and shipping art, including paintings, prints, framed artwork, and sculpture. We can even help you pack your artwork so it stays safe in transit.

Are you an artist shipping original pieces to clients across the country? Work with a dedicated logistics specialist to coordinate all aspects of your art delivery, including recurring shipments.

Are you a collector? Our network of expert art shippers have the experience to relocate your collection from one home or business to another. We can also help with estate distributions.

First-rate protection for shipping paintings and sculpture

Professional packing TSI’s fine art shipping services include professional packing and custom crating, plus indoor pickup and delivery, for all your fragile and valuable pieces.

Insurance Every art shipment includes 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.

Access to specialty carriers TSI works with a nationwide network of licensed and approved carriers. We can secure space on a dedicated truck, as well as on trucks with air-ride suspension or climate controlled environments.

Shipping sculpture for Tom

Challenge accepted
Tom B., a philanthropist and education enthusiast, needed help shipping Tobey, a 1,400 lb solid bronze bear statue worth approximately $70,000 to a charter school in Cashiers, NC—in just six days.

Problem solved
TSI’s logistics specialists worked with Tom to create a shipping plan that would get Tobey to his new home safely and on time. Our 5-person moving team dismantled Tobey, packed him into a specially-built custom crate, and transported him to Cashiers on an air-ride suspension truck. Tobey arrived early, and the school has been enjoying his company ever since.

Fine art shipping for your whole collection

Paintings
From choosing the right box to properly protecting stretched canvas, carefully packaging your artwork is especially important when shipping paintings. Our professional art shippers will prepare your paintings for safe transit using only high-quality packing materials.

Prints, photos, and framed artwork
Glass and framed artwork is especially vulnerable to damage in transit. We can help you create a tailor-made plan for shipping prints, photos, and frames.

Sculpture
Proper packaging is essential when shipping sculpture. 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.
