The unique nature of our work requires that we utilize a variety of shipping methods. For many pieces, UPS is sufficient; other work may require crating and insurance. In all cases, we try to strike a balance between cost to the customer and safe arrival of our work. Generally, we will use our preferred shipper and the charges for transport and insurance will be detailed on your invoice. Alternatively, we can work with your shipper/insurer, and only our packaging/crating costs will appear on your invoice. Upon delivery, please thoroughly inspect your purchase, taking careful note of how it was packed. If there is a problem, please contact us for instructions. All packing materials should be retained.
