Freight Shipping

Artwork with dimensions exceeding FedEx Ground’s max size limitations are crated and shipped via freight carrier.  This includes collages 46” x 56” and larger as well as many of our sculptural works.

We partner with a local, specialty packing and shipping company which specializes in the transport of high-value goods: All Points Pack & Ship. The artwork is crated in a hand-built wood frame, typically an A-frame crate to prevent tipping in transit (view sample crate photo). Upon departure from Denver, you will receive an email either from us or All Points Pack & Ship with the PRO (tracking number) and the freight carrier’s website to track the crate. Upon pick-up from our studio, average turnaround time for crating is 3-5 business days.

DELIVERY OPTIONS
We will quote two options for delivery:

+Curbside -  The freight carrier calls to schedule a delivery window. Upon arrival, the crate is lowered to ground level in the street. Delivery appointments at a set time (versus window of time) are available for an additional fee. The average quote for crating, freight, and curbside residential delivery with delivery window is $675-$900. Please keep in mind: these crates are about 200 lb in weight and about 36"-48" wide with the A-frame construction.

+White Glove Service – The crate will be delivered by the freight carrier to another entity (like Craters and Freighters) that offers white-glove service. The crate will typically be unpacked and artwork inspected at the white glove carrier’s receiving facility. On occasion, the white-glove carrier will leave the artwork crated until delivery at your home. Following receipt, the white glove carrier will call to schedule a delivery appointment. The artwork is then packaged in moving blanket (or comparable) for in-town transit via smaller truck. Upon arrival, the white glove carrier will bring the artwork inside and haul away all packing materials. The average quote for crating, freight, and white glove delivery is $875-$1025.

INSURANCE
On average, insurance is $.04 per $1.00 of coverage (As an example, insurance would cost $400 to insure a work of art up to $10K). However, we carry a fine art policy which covers artwork in transit at its full retail value. We extend this coverage at no additional cost to our collectors. Purchasers do not pay an additional fee to insurance the artwork in transit.


INSPECTION UPON DELIVERY
We have a great track record with shipping over-sized artwork, but mistakes do happen in the world of freight despite our best efforts. Upon receipt, please thoroughly inspect the crate for any sign of damage. If there is any sign of damage, please note on the delivery paperwork prior to signing and please take photos of the damage before the crate is opened. Then please notify us immediately.


INSTALLATION
White glove service does not include installation. We are happy to help research professional art installers in your delivery area. Please contact us for assistance.
