Wonder how a painting can get to you? My first daunting delivery
Read how you can benefit from free shipping and my super framing deal which sort of came about from trying to get my head around this rather dull subject - shipping and delivery.
Being a painter involves a lot more than I could have ever imagined and it seems as if the to do list is endless and shipping was usually relegated to the bottom of my long list until a commission for a large painting came in from a client - in Germany. Not only was this the first painting I had to arrange shipping for but it was also a big painting. What are the options?
Pick up from Exhibitions for all paintings
I have sold a lot of paintings over the years, just a few of them you can see in the sold section here Most are sold at exhibitions where clients pick up the painting and take it with them. Payment is taken by card before the painting is released. I also deliver within Sussex, free of charge. I enjoy delivering paintings whenever I can as I get to see where the painting will go and this for me is such a pleasure. You can also pick up from my studio where there is always a welcome chat and coffee to got with it.
Ordering a Limited Edition Print Online
You can order a limited edition print here online, pay for it and it will be sent directly to you by the printing company. It arrives beautifully packaged and of course unframed. The Framing offer does not apply to this purchase.
Having a canvas painting delivered
So my company of choice to have a painting delivered would be Pack and Send or FedEx. All of the packing has to be carefully chosen and times for delivery agreed. Paper work is sent and agreed and all work is sent when payment has arrived and cleared.
Having works on paper delivered and framed to your choice
I do not sent framed works on paper, glass breaks! I send the painting in a large tube, carefully packed with glassine paper and sent by Royal Mail recorded delivery. You can take advantage of my super Framing offer (get your painting framed at your local framer and the costs will be paid for your choice of frame). Documentation is sent to you upon payment clearing.
Free delivery on all paintings within the U.K. even at sales times
The price of the paintings shown here on my website includes delivery within the UK. This does not affect you as a consumer and your rights and you can read all of my latest terms and conditions below at the foot of the page which is also sent out with a painting order.
So the painting that was shipped to Germany, was 'Summer Table' 1m x 150cm - lovely large painting that found its way to a beautiful German dining room and a lovely lovely lady. It was packed and handled superbly by Pack and Send. I was naturally concerned but had no reason to; it arrived as perfect as it was shipped and the client was very happy indeed
