Art Box: Thinking outside the box

4 Apr 2019

At Maurice Ward Art Handling, our principal interest is the safe and secure transport of your artworks. Since 2012, our logistics experts and art technicians set about finding an effective art packing solution for situations where a fine art service was not appropriate. Art Box is the result of this endeavour.

Over the last 7 years, Art Boxes have been used by over 350 clients among artists, individuals, galleries and art centres and shipped to over 29 countries around the globe. Art Box is a unique solution for sending relatively small, flat, inexpensive artworks from your home, gallery or office to anywhere in the world. We have designed Art Box to withstand the rigours of international transport and keep your art safe. By giving you everything you need in one box, we make your job easier, and save you time and money.

Nothing says you care about an artwork being shipped across the globe, then a well presented and designed package. Art Box’s presentation and easy to use system is streamlined and seamless, making packing your work quick and hassle free. It’s triple-wall box construction provides structural integrity and crush resistance while in transit. It also displays your work in a clear and professional manner, ready to present on arrival at its destination.

Art Box is great for:

– Framed flat works
– Prints
– Photographs
– Works on paper

For one price, you get:

– The box
– Professional packing materials
– How to, instructional information

We’ve recently secured a new manufacturer for Art Box which means better prices for our clients. Order your Art Boxes from and we will deliver them to your door.

In addition to the cost for each Art Box, please note there is an Administration & Coordination fee of €15 (ex VAT) per order.
