Once you have coordinated with a shipper of your choice, please let us know by submitting a shipper authorization form.

Service Types

Blanket Wrap

Blanket wrap shippers individually wrap your pieces to protect the surfaces during transport. They provide door-to-door service, from scheduling a pick-up with us at the gallery to delivering it to you at your convenience. Cost varies and is determined by the size of your shipment and your location. Payment for these services may be required in advance.

This service is best for medium to large furniture. Blanket wrap is only available via ground service within the contiguous United States.

Pack & Ship

The shipper professionally packs the items and arranges transport via freight service. They provide door-to-door service, though you are responsible for unpacking your purchase and often for the disposal of the packaging materials. Cost varies and is determined by the size and location. Typically, payment for these services is required in advance. This is the preferred method for international shipments.

This service is best for small to medium sized items (both furniture and objects) and these shippers transport via ground, air, and sea, providing both international and domestic service.

Fine Art Handling

Fine art shippers provide the safest, most customizable service of all our vendors, but this may come at a premium. They specialize in custom crating, boxing, and wrapping, and are especially experienced with fragile items that cannot be packed and shipped via freight (i.e. high value works of art, glass, etc.). These vendors can provide white glove service both domestically and internationally.

This service caters to fragile, high value works of art and design. Each vendor will offer a customized and specialized delivery plan depending on specific need.
