Transporting Artwork for The Biscuit Factory, Newcastle

05th December 2016

We recently arranged the transportation of some original artwork for the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. This involved transporting two paintings safely from the gallery in Northern England to the buyer in Toronto, Canada via our tried and trusted courier air freight service.

We understand the requirements when transporting unique works of art and how important it is to transport goods safely and efficiently. For the Biscuit Factory, we took care of insurance, arranged the air freight courier service and provided advice on customs procedures.

Cargo insurance


We ensured appropriate cargo insurance was in place for works of art prior to shipment. 

Advice on customs procedures

We took the time to explain what customs procedures the customer could expect on arrival into Canada, and the approximate customs import costs they would face in order to correctly clear their purchased goods through customs.

Safe arrival

Taking care of these details ensured the goods arrived at the customer’s door in a matter of days, without issue. The paintings were delivered to their new owner on 1st November. The Biscuit Factory have kindly let us feature the wonderful paintings here:The Bird Family by local artist Peter Hallam and Second Sea Change by Steven Lindsay.

About the Biscuit Factory

The Biscuit Factory is the largest commercial art, craft & design gallery in the UK. Set in a former Victorian warehouse, its gallery space is housed over two floors, offering ‘a range of exciting contemporary fine art, sculpture, original prints and jewellery, quality craftsmanship and design led homewares.’  

The Biscuit Factory holds four exhibitions each year, and they are keen to assist anyone who buys the artwork, offering advice and the Own Art purchase scheme. They regularly transport art to buyers around the world, and were delighted with our service:

“We look forward to doing more business with T.Ward in the future. I would also like to mention how helpful you were during the whole process. Thankyou Callum.”

The Biscuit Factory’s Winter Exhibition opened earlier this month, and features work from over 200 artists, including Scottish painter Phil McLoughlin. They are also hosting a series of Festive weekends throughout December where Christmas shopping can be combined with seasonal food and a pop-up hot chocolate lounge. Sounds much better than braving the crowds on the High Street!

We specialise in art transportation, exporting and importing to and from Scotland and the rest of the UK. Find out more on our website
