Package your item very carefully and correctly in order to protect it from damage (e.g. weather, mechanical damage) during transportation. We recommend you package pictures using bubble wrap and edge protection as a minimum.
The important thing is: In order to protect your item sufficiently from the sort of bumps and scrapes you can expect during transportation, you should choose the quality of your packaging very precisely.
Please also take into account the condition of your item, for example, making sure any paint has dried thoroughly before transportation.
