how to ship artwork with Roadie

The more affordable way to do artwork shipping

Shipping art with a traditional delivery platform can end up costing more than you paid in the first place, or how much you’re even selling it for. It can be a hassle to package up delicate things like framed canvas or pottery in layers of expensive and wasteful bubble wrap or packaging.

And guess what? Those specialty art portfolio boxes can add $150 or more to the cost of artwork transport. Roadie helps you save money on shipping art because we transport it in the vehicles of drivers who are already on their way to the place where your art needs to go.

Stories from the road

  • From Bogart to the Beach

    Anthony bought a lovely custom, wall-sized figurine of the legendary Marilyn Monroe, and needed to send her from Bogart, GA, to Panama City Beach. Shipping art the 360-mile trip would have been too expensive with a traditional carrier, so Anthony posted a Roadie Gig and was delighted to see it was only $100. Less than a week later, Anthony proudly hung Marilyn in a prominent spot on his wall.

  • Two Metal Sculptures Travel 1,650 Miles

    Mark owns a small studio in Silver Spring, MD, where he focuses on handcrafted sculptures, wall panels and furniture. Most of his artwork weighs too much to send with traditional shippers, so he often resorts to freight handlers. It can easily cost $1,000 to ship pieces long distances.

    Mark was searching for a more affordable artwork transport platform, and found Roadie. When a customer in Denver bought two metal sculptures, he posted a Gig. Arion was heading that way the following week, and safely delivered the pair of metal sculptures right to the buyer’s door.

  • Customer Returns Artwork in One Hour

    Martha is a self-taught artist who owns a small gallery in Oak Park, IL. Lately most of her oil and acrylic paintings have been focused on childhood dreams and conquered fears – which resonated with most, but not all, of her customers.

    One customer bought one of Martha’s painting for a friend, and the recipient didn’t think it worked quite right in his home and wanted to send it back. It was only 20 miles away, but it was going to be a hassle for the customer to make the trek. Martha posted a Gig around 6 p.m., and Jose happened to be heading toward her studio – he picked up and delivered the painting within an hour.
