As a safety precaution, we are currently limiting the number of shipping vendors allowed in our dock at any given time. As such, all collections must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance; contact our property department at to schedule an appointment. 

All shipping is handled by third-party vendors. You are welcome to use a vendor of your choice or we can provide a referral. While Wright does not provide shipping services in-house, we are happy to assist you in making arrangements. Below, we have outlined steps to make finding a shipper as easy as possible. 

1. Determine Service Needed

Factors to consider as you look for a shipper are destination, size of the item(s) and the fragility. 

2. Select Shipper / Get Quotes

We have several preferred vendors that service all parts of the globe and we are happy to provide introductions.

3. Submit Shipping Authorization Form

Once you have coordinated with a shipper of your choice, please let us know by submitting a shipper authorization form.

Service Types

Blanket Wrap

Blanket wrap shippers individually wrap your pieces to protect the surfaces during transport. They provide door-to-door service, from scheduling a pick-up with us at the gallery to delivering it to you at your convenience. Cost varies and is determined by the size of your shipment and your location. Payment for these services may be required in advance.

This service is best for medium to large furniture. Blanket wrap is only available via ground service within the contiguous United States.

Pack & Ship

The shipper professionally packs the items and arranges transport via freight service. They provide door-to-door service, though you are responsible for unpacking your purchase and often for the disposal of the packaging materials. Cost varies and is determined by the size and location. Typically, payment for these services is required in advance. This is the preferred method for international shipments.

This service is best for small to medium sized items (both furniture and objects) and these shippers transport via ground, air, and sea, providing both international and domestic service.

Fine Art Handling

Fine Art shippers provide the safest, most customizable service of all our vendors, but this may come at a premium. They specialize in custom crating, boxing, and wrapping, and are especially experienced with fragile items that cannot be packed and shipped via freight (i.e. high value works of art, glass, etc.). These vendors can provide white glove service both internationally and domestically.

This service caters to fragile, high value works of art and design. Each vendor will offer a customized and specialized delivery plan depending on specific need.
