Packing and shipping paintings

Works of art and paintings require special packaging. This is the only way to prevent damage during transportation. At Mail Boxes Etc. trained experts take care of a professional and safe packing of your objects.

The way we pack your art objects and paintings depends on the type of object, its dimensions and weight. Depending on the type of object, we use, for example, wooden frames, glassine and bubble wrap to prepare your art for shipping. This way, your paintings are well protected during shipping.

For loading valuable cargo, we use special lifting and conveying equipment when shipping art. Through them, the object is safely loaded into the transport vehicle and properly secured there. If required, vehicles with temperature control are of course used when shipping your art.
