First off, this is my first thread. I just sold a large painting and wanted to feel out the community on what carrier they use to ship large paintings securely and economically. I asked UPS in my rural Vermont area, and they charge $80 to package, and another $200 to ship a 3’ x4’ painting from VT to NC. The online FedEx chat claimed to pack and send it for $70, but when I got to the center they said to go to, the employee claimed they don’t package paintings, or anything else there. FedEx customer service on the phone, and in person was awful. So, any advice from other artists shipping large paintings? I’ll most likely package the painting myself to save on some of the $80.
