Jive uses two primary methods for the safe shipping of artwork around Australia, Specialist Art Couriers and Standard Couriers.
Specialist art couriers operate with people expert in moving and protecting valuable art and offer door to door service with minimal handling from pick up to delivery. Works shipped by art couriers require only minimal packing for dust and fingerprint protection. For glass art, larger paintings, framed works and works deemed collectible we offer only Specialist Art Courier service where it is available. Larger works are generally those 150 cm or greater in any dimension.
Specialist art couriers generally operate up and down the East coast of Australia including ACT, but are not available to SA, NT, TAS at this time. For WA, we work with a specialist furniture removal company enabling us to ship large works safely and securely generally on a monthly basis.
Standard Couriers. For smaller works and where the Specialist Art Service is not available, we use National courier services such as Fedex (formerly TNT). Your work will be professionally and securely packed, insured and shipped directly to your home or office.
Free Shipping. Periodically, we are able to offer free shipping. During this time, Jive Art will select the best means for shipping your artwork to you safely and quickly. We will advise you of the courier or carrier on shipping and send you tracking information when available.
Outside Australia.International Shipping - New Zealand. We offer fully insured shipping via Fedex (formerly TNT International) or Australia Post for small works. The GST is displayed on all prices on the Jive Art website, however on entering your NZ address the Australian GST will be automatically deducted and your shipping rates will be displayed.
All other International Shipping. Jive Art has shipped work around the world since 2006 using the safest and best rates possible. Please use the Enquire Button on the page of the work you are interested in for a specific quote by providing your city, post code and country. Prices on the Jive Art website include Australian Goods and Services tax of 10% which we are not required to collect GST on works shipped outside of Australia. We will advise the reduced artwork price when we return the shipping quote to so you have an accurate total price.
