Let Roadie show you how to ship artwork effortlessly
Skip the headaches of traditional shipping and send artwork with Roadie locally or nationwide. No matter whether your art needs to travel across town or hundreds of miles across the country, Roadie has Drivers in all 50 states. And one of them is already planning a trip to the place where your artwork also needs to go. Putting items in the extra space in cars already on the road is how to ship a painting or other art the more efficient, greener way.
Fragile? We invented fragile
Forget about the idea of some stranger tossing your delicate painting or artwork onto conveyor belts zooming around a dusty distribution warehouse, then onto a truck. And then onto another truck until finally reaching your front porch. With Roadie, only your selected Driver will handle your valuable art pieces and drive it directly from one door to the other. That’s how to ship art with confidence.
How to ship a painting for just a little coin
We know your treasures are, well, treasures. When you decide to get that beloved family heirloom portrait of your great-great-great-grandmother professionally framed, and need to find a way to get the painting to the framer and back home without draining your bank account, let Roadie show you how to ship a painting for just a little coin.
How to ship art if it’s heavy
Beautiful things can be big. And heavy. Roadie Drivers have all sorts of large, spacious vehicles like SUVs and pickup trucks to ensure your heavy artwork is safely delivered. The details in your Gig will tell us what sort of vehicle can accommodate your big beautiful masterpiece. Because Roadies aren’t movers, you may need to ask a friend to help load and unload the item if your artwork is heavy.
Pro tip: clear obstacles and open doors, and talk through how and where you’re going to carry it before you start moving. Have both people get a firm but gentle grip of the item, and coordinate your movements to get that art safely in the vehicle.
