Wyecliffe Benefits - Our 12 Point Checklist

Trading for over 30 years, we have made art our passion. Therefore we have developed a strict set of standards for the safe storage and dispatch of our precious works to our collectors.

Our meticulous 12-point checklist ensures each and every work upholds our exacting quality standards, when dispatching one of our artworks.

Researching new technologies in safe storage and packaging of our work - and utilising our combined knowledge of art to custom package distinct types of painting and sculpture - we safely dispatch the most delicate of artworks internationally.

  • The Painting is thoroughly examined to ensure pristine condition.
  • Any specks of dust are removed with a compressed air system.
  • The frame is inspected for a flawless finish.
  • The glass and frame are given a final polish with an anti-static microfibre art cloth.
  • We triple-check the client's shipping details.
  • All hanging fittings, such as wire, hooks and straps are thoroughly inspected for accuracy and secure installation.
  • Any applicable provenance (certificates of authenticity etc.) and sales invoices are attached.
  • Our dispatch experts assess the work to determine any custom packing methods that may be required.
  • The piece is wrapped for safety and security, including the following methods, depending on the medium of the art:
    • custom expanded-rubber edges.
    • reinforced glass seal if required.
    • acid-free paper if required.
    • custom crating is assembled if required.
  • Painting encased in reinforced shipping-box, suspended with large expanded-rubber molded corners.
  • A Wyecliffe gift-box of exclusive content is enclosed.
  • The piece is handed over to one of our entrusted courier companies and tracked during transit.

Once these conditions are met: the works are painstakingly recorded in our state-of-the-art database system (including advanced location tracking) and extensively photographed by Lucy and the image processing team. With extensive ‘macro’ detail shots utilising the Canon EOS 5DS camera: these shots not only form the basis for internet and print promotions: but form a visual record of the work at ultra-high resolution.

Finally; the works that aren’t immediately selected for the gallery walls (or better still, immediately dispatched to a lucky collector) are archived in our temperature controlled ‘vault’. Stored upright, fully surrounded in custom high-impact expanded rubber: the securely stored paintings are routinely checked and rotated onto gallery displays to ensure they remain in mint condition.
