Case Study:Art Shipping and Handling

Leif Ritchey, Pearls, 2014, Acrylic on canvas, 86.5 x 94 inches

James at our Atwater store recently got a call from one of our customers, to see if we could work with a local gallery and ship a 86 1/2" x 94" painting by Leif Ritchey the client had bought to the UK.

This is a quote James received from the gallery for shipping the painting from Los Angeles to London that they had gotten from C------ & T---, a well known International Art Shipper.

We looked at the quote, responded with our own quote, and wound up shipping the piece. If you look at the figures, you'll know why.

Keith Haring

UPS requires that all shippers of wine be licensed and approved under UPS Agreement for Approved Wine Shippers as well as adhere to to their guidelines for packaging. Many shippers skirt this and simply ship "don't ask, don't tell"..not very ethical and this can cause problems if something happens and you need to file a claim.

At, we do it right. You can rest assured when you ship with us. Our shipments are licensed and approved for shipment to 46 states and 80 foreign countries.

From a musician friend ...

From a musician friend ... "I recently sold an amplifier on eBay and since I didn't have the original box, I needed to have it packaged and shipped. I knew this was going to eat into the profits of the sale but at 46 pounds the amplifier was a heavy one and I did not want anything to go wrong while in transit. With no reference on shipping an item this large and heavy I decided to go for it. It set me back about $100.00 but in the end it was well worth it.
