Artwork Crating & Shipping

p1150980Need to send art or artwork? Pak Mail of Traverse City regularly offers our services to artists, galleries, museums, and auctions. We provide personal service to our clients 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.

Our packaging is exceptional for protecting against damage. But in the unlikely event of damage or loss, Pak Mail has declared value coverage available to its customers to cover the value of the artwork. We have the support of our Pak Mail corporate declared value coverage in addition to any coverage the shipping service may offer. A few things we ask our customers to do before shipping highly valuable pieces:

  • 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.
