Fine Art Courier
What are fine art couriers?
Fine art couriers is a term given to people who deliver parcels associated with the arts and craft industries. No matter what your parcel, it should always be a top priority of the courier company, however when someone is dealing with fine art, extra care and skill is needed because of the (often) fragile and expensive nature of these items.
When most people think of fine art, images of expensive paintings often come to mind. Whilst it is true that fine art does cover a lot of these situations, it is more than just paintings. Fine art can be extended to be associated with sculptures, ceramics, frames, antiques and even textiles, making fine art couriers a broad area of service.
What is different about transporting fine art?
As mentioned above, fine art is often very fragile, so the way it is packaged and transported will need to be different to that of other goods. The customer can aid this by ensuring plenty of cushioning and wrapping of the goods is adhered to. However, the courier company also plays a valuable role, and the level of care and skill used when transporting fine art can be the biggest important factor.
When would you need to use the services of a fine art courier? Here are situations where Rock Solid Deliveries have a wealth of experience in:
Artwork which is sold by companies or organisations and needs to be delivered to customers.
Transportation of artwork to exhibitions or shows, including art galleries, auction houses or museums.
For larger or bulky pieces of artwork – often traditional methods of sending parcels are not suitable for valuable and delicate items like fine art.
For time purposes. The longer pieces of fine art are in the transportation process the greater the risk of damage occurring. If art pieces move from ‘A’ to ‘B’ fast, they spend less time in a vulnerable stage.
