We would prefer that you reach out 2 – 4 weeks in advance, so that we have time to plan accordingly, and so that you have several options for transport. If you’d like to schedule a shipment, to be picked up and delivered a month or two (or more) in the future, we highly recommend that you pre-confirm with us. If you pre-confirm (supply us with all of the pertinent details about the shipment and express an interest in booking at a later time), you will be given priority once we begin to configure our schedules for that particular month.
No, the transportation cost is dependent upon the type of artwork, the size of the artwork, the amount of artwork, the distance that the artwork will be traveling, any limitations/restrictions involved, etc. The cost per piece decreases as the number of pieces increase. So, the more you ship, the better your rate.
