Ship Smart Shipping Art Announces Gains in Worldwide Art Transport Industry Niche

Ship Smart announces a growing presence and reputation for excellent service in the fine art shipping industry. Specializing in both small moves and high value items, ShipSmart provides secure, professional art crating, packing and shipping across the country and around the globe.

For more than a decade, Ship Smart has been shipping art across the country and overseas for well-known art dealers, museums, and leading auction houses. The art transportation company announces growing success with its services and reputation as it gains a strong foothold in this industry niche, shipping fine art, statues, paintings, and other high-value items safely, reliably, and at competitive rates.

Shipping paintings and statues is a service that is perfected over time,” says John Kessler, the owner of Ship Smart who has specialized in moving high value items and fine art for more than two decades. “We provide training to our more than 300 shipping professionals, ensuring that they provide premium artwork shipping services. No matter if the art is priced in the millions or is priceless to the owners, our fine artwork packing, crating, and shipping services are affordable and available to anyone.”

Kessler points out that because Ship Smart specializes in small moves worldwide—whether high-value electronic equipment, family heirlooms, or fine art; their shipping services are available at lower rates. ShipSmart spends millions of dollars with their shipping and crating companies and are given deep discounts on all their shipments. Customers share in these volume discounts, making premium services from expert craters and shippers more economical. Live help from well-trained experts and online estimates for shipping fine art make it easier to manage art logistics.

Licensed, bonded, insured, and listed with the Better Business Bureau, Ship Smart offers both onsite and offsite fine art packing, crating, and shipping services. Maintaining the highest quality packaging standards, ShipSmart employs the latest technology in crating and foam injection for reliable and safe art shipments. With full-replacement insurance coverage, a personal tracking service, and live customer service, Ship Smart is the intelligent choice for shipping art.

“We like to say that we make an art of packing sculptures and paintings: Crates are not just wooden boxes with your items inside; ours are premium crates from industry experts who are thoroughly trained and tested to do it right. We take our packing and transport seriously as we work on behalf of our customers; we realize that a company is only as good as its reputation,” says Kessler.

And the Ship Smart reputation is faring well. They’ve handled such high-value shipments as Oscar statues for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Les Paul Guitars valued at more than one million dollars each, and fine art pieces for museums, auction houses and individuals. Ship Smart even packed and shipped high end electronics for the linear accelerator on behalf of Stanford University employees.
