We recently arranged the transportation of some original artwork for the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. This involved transporting two paintings safely from the gallery in Northern England to the buyer in Toronto, Canada via our tried and trusted courier air freight service.
EXPORTING WORKS OF ARTWe understand the requirements when transporting unique works of art and how important it is to transport goods safely and efficiently. For the Biscuit Factory, we took care of insurance, arranged the air freight courier service and provided advice on customs procedures.
We ensured appropriate cargo insurance was in place for works of art prior to shipment.
Advice on customs procedures
We took the time to explain what customs procedures the customer could expect on arrival into Canada, and the approximate customs import costs they would face in order to correctly clear their purchased goods through customs.
