SHIPPING YOUR PAINTING TO THE GALLERY

By Ted Fraser

FCA Gallery Technician

The gallery acccepts shipments from all the major couriers. With the exception of Canada Post and Greyhound Courier (see below), all shipments from the major couriers (FedEx, Purolator and UPS) MUST have pre-arranged return shipment in place.  Federation Gallery will not act on behalf of the artist in any way other than to re-pack your artwork and request a pickup once the exhibition is over.

 

If you arrange for shipping online, you can generate a return waybill within the form:

 

  • For FedEx, click ‘include return label’ in the package and shipment details portion of the form.
  • For Purolator, go to ‘ship and track’, then to create return shipment.
  • For UPS, click create return shipment on the home page.

 

Canada Post

Federation Gallery is again accepting shipments from Canada Post. The gallery will contact you for your credit card information and generate a waybill with it. The gallery does not keep credit card information on file so you are contacted each time a painting is to be returned.

 

 

Greyhound Courier

Greyhound doesn’t require credit card pre-payment. They will call you when your package is at the depot closest to you and you pay for the shipment when you pick it up. You can have them deliver to your door but they don’t go everywhere and of course, it’s more costly.

RETURNING YOUR PAINTINGS

If you ship your painting to the gallery, every effort will be made to return it as soon as possible after the exhibition has ended. Please be aware that while the gallery office is open 5 days a week, shipments from the gallery take place only 3 days out of the week and returns can take 2 weeks or more from the end of an exhibition. Should you need to have your painting returned by a certain date, please contact the gallery at fcashipping@artists.ca or call 604.681.8534.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to email Ted Fraser at fcashipping@artists.ca or call the gallery at 604.681.8534.
