Shipping & Transportation

Art Work FAS will handle all the details in transporting your artwork safely and securely to its destination. Shipping options include domestic and international commercial flight, shuttle, and exclusive delivery.

We’ll work with you to determine which methods best suit your needs by comparing time frames, price points, and handling considerations. We then streamline the process by facilitating any paperwork, including U.S. Customs and international forms as necessary, and will work directly with shippers to track the progress of your artwork from pickup to delivery.

 

Domestic & International Shipping

Whether you’re shipping domestically or internationally, we’ll get your artwork to its destination quickly, safely, and hassle-free. We partner with import/export agents around the country and around the globe to ensure that your items arrive in perfect condition and without delay. Let our customs team handle the details—you just tell us where you want your art to go and when. Additional airport services include tarmac or cargo-loading supervision and security escort.

Shuttle

The Art Work FAS West Coast shuttle route includes:

  • Seattle
  • Portland
  • San Francisco Bay Area

In addition to our regular bi-weekly and monthly west coast shuttle routes, we work with partner carriers (other art handling companies with warehouse and/or installation teams in the local area) to service the entire West Coast from Vancouver, BC to Los Angeles, CA. Our trusted partners can hold your items for you and deliver them when it’s convenient for your schedule. We also can provide logistics for any domestic or international fine art transport—see Domestic & International Shipping for more information.

Shuttle Schedule

Exclusive Delivery

Our true "white glove" service, Exclusive Delivery means that you have a truck or trucks dedicated to your artwork alone. This is often the best option if:

  • You have high-value work for which you desire private transport
  • You are bound by loan agreements or insurance requirements for museums or brokers that state artwork must be collected and delivered directly to the receiver with no other stops
  • You live in a rural area that is considered “off-route” for the shuttle
  • With Exclusive Delivery, handling is done only by the Art Work FAS team from collection to delivery. This reduces the risks involved in transferring between various carriers; for example, from a flight to a trucking company to a storage warehouse. This service is available anywhere in the continental United States.
