Do I Need Insurance When Shipping Paintings And Antiques?

Yes. We strongly advise that you seek independent insurance advice before shipping paintings and antiques. Or get in touch with our team for help organising insurance cover.

At Aardvark Art Services, we have Goods in Transit cover, subject to the Road Haulage Association terms and conditions 1998. However, we recommend that you ensure your fine art and precious pieces are insured before you hand them over to a transportation company.

Your fine art and antiques should always be insured. Whether they are in your home, tucked away in storage or on display at an auction house etc., your pieces should be covered with insurance. Especially if they are fragile, as most fine art and antiques are. Insurance provides cover against a range of factors including damage, theft and losses –  whilst giving you peace of mind.

Insurance is particularly important when shipping paintings and antiques – as transportation can have risks. If you’re unsure where to start when it comes to insurance, you don’t have to worry! Here at Aardvark Art Services, we can organise insurance cover for you!
