Black Rock Galleries generally does not provide packing/crating nor shipping services for most items, with the exception of jewelry, coins and select single small items (shipped via U.S.P.S. Flat Rate post).
Over the years, we have come to work with several reputable shipping agencies that provide these services for our customers. You are free to use any third party shipping service you choose, but as a courtesy, we recommend any of the following...
FOR JEWELRY, COINS & SINGLE SMALL ITEMS:
Please contact BRG directly at 203-335-0000 for a shipping quote on single small items including jewelry and coins. BRG will only ship via the United States Postal Service’s (U.S.P.S.) flat rate shipping service.
FOR SMALL & MEDIUM SIZED ITEMS:
Black Rock Galleries recommends local UPS stores in both Bridgeport and Greenwich, CT to assist with the shipping of your items. These locations will come to BRG, pick-up your lot(s), pack, and ship the items. Please contact them directly for estimates and to arrange final shipping details within five days of purchasing items.

Our customers have used and we can recommend the following services for their fine art shipping:

Size and weight are often the biggest factor in pricing and sourcing the right shipping agency to carefully handle your newly purchased items. For larger items, our customers have used (and we can recommend) the following for their freight and large-item shipping services throughout the country:
