Artwork Packing & Shipping Salida

Custom Crating of Fine Art, Paintings, & Sculptures

Fine Art Shipping, Fine Artwork Shipping Salida

Need to send art or artwork? Pak Mail Salida has served artists, galleries, museums and auction houses throughout the High Rockies since 1999. We provide personal service including custom packaging, crating, and shipping these items with special care.

We know that family heirlooms and works of art are precious and deserve the most attention for the safest delivery. We spare no packing material or technique, because we understand what packages endure during the shipping process, and we photograph the artwork BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER packing in order to protect our customers.

Our packaging technique for framed or unframed art and artwork involves several steps.  First, any item containing glass, such as framed art and pictures, receives a layer of glass mask--a plastic covering that leaves no residue, but protects the glass from breaking, or, if breakage does occur, holds the glass away from the artwork.

For furniture or other wooden items, we apply furniture wrap, a combination of thick tissue and paper, to prevent abrasion and scratching of fine wood and critical-finish surfaces.

Next, a layer of styrofoam board is sized and applied using stretch film around the piece to withstand any mishandling event that might occur. The piece is surrounded with a double-walled corrugated container or a crate.

We stock picture boxes for the most common artwork sizes, but we can custom-build any size double-walled corrugated container or crate necessary.

Lastly, the space left between the carefully wrapped artwork and container is filled using packing peanuts, because nothing should be loose when shipped.

Our packaging is exceptional for protecting against damage.  However, in the unlikely event of damage or loss, Pak Mail has coverage available for the value of the artwork. The Salida Pak Mail is supported by our franchisor in addition to any coverage the carrier may offer.

Before shipping highly valuable pieces, we ask our customers to:

  • Keep purchase receipts or appraisals as evidence of value.
  • If there is no evidence indicating value, seek to have it documented in some fashion such as a quotation for similar item, publication or appraisal.
  • Take several pictures of the item to document its condition.
