A Safe Pair of Hands With Pack and Send

Art is valuable in differing ways. Some pieces of work can have a high monetary value, other pieces, even though they might not be costly, can be pricelessly valuable to people, to their families, or to their businesses. And an artwork, such as a painting, ceramics or jewellery, is unique – large or small, new or old, there is nothing else like it in the world. So when it has to make a journey from one place to another, it has to be delivered safe and sound, and the sender should be assured that it will arrive safely.

Art is also global: PACK & SEND has service centres and offices across the UK including Edinburgh and Glasgow, Dunfermline and Perth, and its aim is always to deliver valuables safely and securely to over 220 countries in the world, and will take on the heavy responsibility of ensuring any package in its hands is given top-notch protection.

They are experts at sending the fragile, large, awkward and valuable – known in the industry as FLAV – and the company prides itself on being able to send anything, anywhere.

Shipping art and antiques is a speciality for PACK & SEND, which often involves picking up from auction houses or galleries before packaging and despatch. In addition to artworks, almost anything from cameras and computers to musical equipment can be sent and delivered with confidence, thanks to the quality of the company’s packaging materials, which include customised crates that are perfect for the job. If proof were needed that PACK & SEND is no stranger to the art world, it even has its own Art of the Week competition feature, running on its FacebookInstagramTwitterLinkedIn, and Pinterest social media pages.

View PACK & SEND’s website to find out how to send precious or unique artefacts with confidence; if your business is an art gallery, you might be especially interested in the customer case study of Byard Art contemporary gallery in Cambridge, in which the gallery discusses the importance of having trust in PACK & SEND’s friendly and reliable service for its framing service and two and three-dimensional artworks: ‘We have had many very happy clients upon seeing how respectfully and carefully their artwork has been handled and wrapped’.

Their service includes a wide range of freight services by air, sea and road, and its expert knowledge of moving items all over the globe means you can be assured that your package will be delivered within your desired timescale, at a competitive rate. With the company’s UK freight services, next-day delivery can be arranged, as well as cover against loss and damage.
