How can I ship the arts to other countries?

I would like to send one of my artwork to the US. I wonder how do I transport this artwork safely. It is a framed oil painting on canvas, how could I send it to the US? Can I use courier services for this?

When i first started to paint ( a long time ago) i had the same question
and if it is me than you have two options
the first would be to get a solid box construction - and place the artwork inside and wrap it up so much !!
bubble paper and more bubble paper.... and more

- second is to take the canvas off the stretcher and ship that out...
the receiver can get it reframed...

i would go with the first option... and yes couriers can do this for you and some will even ship it with a box as needed..
courier will be safe /tracked and insured ...

good luck
