For Paintings / Prints:

The frame dimensions:

height & width & depth ( includung the frame/stretcher )

Mixed Media / Light Boxes

The external dims, do we need to provide extra space for electrical plugs, adapters, wires etc

For Bronze / Sculpture:

The height, width and depth. Please measure to the furthest extremities, fingers, tails, extrusions etc. We also need an accurate weight. It is very helpful if you can email us an image too.

Antiques and alike:  

Accurate dimensions, height, width and depth and an idea of the weight. Again, if you can email us an image it's very helpful.

Once we have all the above we can quickly calculate the costs and transit times.

Also, it really helps us to know where or how you found us, so we know where to keep advertising etc. i.e. did a google search, yahoo, bing etc. or anyone of the various links and ads we place - Thanks very much
