I need to ship a pastel piece to Israel. I use specially designed and lined shipment cartons to send framed work, under glass, to clients domestically. Never had a problem with damage or broken glass using one of these cartons.
But the long haul and expense to Israel is a whole different ballgame. If you have experience in shipping overseas, would you recommend that I ship it unframed, without the glass? My client really liked the frame with the piece, so I could send that separately.
And I normally use FedEx. But I don't think they'll be able to insure the work for its full retail value. Is there a different carrier that I could use?
Any advice would be appreciated.
