Crating is the process of putting your artwork in wooden crates for that extra layer of protection from breaking. Therefore, the best art handlers will construct custom crates to fit your precious artwork and ensure it’s fitting and not too loose. You don’t want your art crashing around in its crate! Especially if you’re preparing for a long journey, or need to put your art in storage. This is why a proper crate is worth its weight in gold, though you won’t pay its weight in it. If you’re constantly on the move, reusable crates are an option. Although your primary concern should be for the safety of your art, if you’re short on cash experts can discuss economic crating options with you.

What kind of art can benefit from art crating?

Anything that needs to be moved! A custom ordered crate will fit your artwork and will be far sturdier than a simple cardboard box. Of course, sculptures and installations are an obvious candidate for crating, but paintings hugely benefit from the crate treatment too. Even if you’re just shipping it via plane or boat, a wooden crate will stand out and so people will treat it more carefully. A quality, sturdy crate, will help your art immensely. Especially if you order a custom-made crate! While you could do it yourself and just purchase wooden boxes, it’s absolutely a useless endeavor without an expert’s touch. You might be the art expert, but we’re the moving experts.

Why is art crating important?

Plus, they will construct the crates so the artwork isn’t damaged by any vibration or won’t get any unseemly marks. Real professionals will make sure your art isn’t damaged by water either!
