Art, Furniture & Antiques
Shipping Is An Art In Itself
Shipping Shack specializes in packing, crating, and shipping fine art. Whether you’re shipping priceless museum art or a single, sentimental piece – our custom pack and ship services will ensure that your fine art collection, antiques, and other valuables will be packed, crated, and transported safely to any location in the US, Canada, or around the world.
We offer a wide range of pickup and delivery, packing, shipping, and declared value coverage options specific to your needs, time schedule, and budget.
Pickup and Delivery for Shipping Art
Our job ends only when the artwork arrives at its destination safely, NOT when it leaves our facility.
Whether it’s a heavy sculpture, fine porcelain, antique paintings, or precious family heirlooms, we can help. The artwork packaging experts at Shipping Shack will pick up, pack, and transport your artwork to and from museums, art and antique galleries, auction houses, restorers, private residences, offices, or warehouses.
Specialty Art Packaging
The difference between “damaged” and “damage free” lies in the specialized packing services Shipping Shack provides.
Our shipping crates and transport crates are designed from the ground up and built to address the specific needs of the specific piece of artwork.
Shipping Shack provides art packing and shipping for items like these:
- Framed & unframed paintings, drawings and photographs
- Small to large sculptures of marble, wood, metal, stone, or glass
- Ceramics & pottery
- Art glass
- Architectural models
- Figurines & collectibles
- Antiques and movie props
- Museum exhibitions
- Gallery exhibitions
- Historic artifacts of any size
Everything but the kitchen sink… (OK, we’ll ship that, too!)
Whether it’s an antique chair, a roomful of contemporary furniture, or a large office credenza, it needs special packaging to ensure damage-free furniture shipping.
At The Shipping Shack, we have over 25 years of furniture packing and moving experience. Across North America or around the globe, the professional furniture shippers at Shipping Shack offer time-definite deliveries, superior packaging, the option of declared value coverage, and personalized tracking for smooth and safe deliveries.
Why residential customers, interior designers, furniture stores and antique dealers choose Shipping Shack for their furniture moving needs:

International Furniture Shipping
Shipping furniture internationally requires special handling, knowledge of overseas shipping requirements, and expert packaging to ensure it can withstand the rigors of air or overseas freight. Unless you are shipping enough furniture overseas to take up a full container load, (known as FCL), Shipping Shack will consolidate your international furniture shipment with other shipments going to the same destination (known as LCL or less than a container load) to save you money.
Going once, going twice… Delivered!
We specialize in custom packing, art and trade show crating, packing, and transport of antiques as well as furniture shipping services to buyers and sellers on eBay, Dovebid, and local auction houses.
Auction sellers: Increase sales with better packaging and shipping
Shipping Shack is a packing and shipping company. We understand that buyers are more likely to purchase again when the seller demonstrates care and professionalism in making sure items are packaged for pristine delivery.
Simplify: We’re your single source for pickup, packing, international shipping and small moves as well as full service delivery. Need to ship multiple items to multiple locations? No problem!
Sell difficult items: Are there items you haven’t sold because of the packaging and shipping hassle? We can ship even the largest and most fragile or valuable items.
