PACKING AND SHIPPING ART
OUR EXPERIENCED BROKERS WILL HELP WITH SHIPPING. WE USE UPS, FEDEX, DHL, CRATERS & FREIGHTERS, AND OTHER BONDED ART SHIPPERS.
Art Brokerage insists that your artwork is packed by a professional. Proper packaging is very important and must be done to avoid any damage during the shipping process. If the art is not packed sufficiently and arrives damaged, it will be returned at your expense and the buyer will be refunded in full. We welcome international buyers & sellers and have decades of experience conducting transactions worldwide. Our experienced brokers will assist you at every step of the way to making a successful sale. Use this Packing & Shipping checklist to simplify the process and help keep you on track!
