Understanding the Importance of Crating
If your art collection is composed of a diverse lineup of pieces, including paintings, sculptures, installations, and antiques, our team designs and constructs specialized crates tailored to the specific requirements of each item in your fine art collection, ensuring maximum safety during transit. Our clients can rest assured that our team employs high-quality materials and advanced techniques to ensure the preservation of your pieces.
The care and precision that artists put into their pieces deserve a team that will match that care when crafting their work. Our team of skilled professionals understands the nuances involved in building crates, and can work alongside you, creating a solution with a consideration of each individual piece in mind.
Your Partner to Transport Art Collections
Summer exhibitions are often defined by frequent shipping. Art professionals often juggle several temporary exhibitions in their museum or art gallery. Art professionals need a partner to take the stress out of the transportation process.
Our team of leading transportation experts ensures that your artwork is handled with the utmost care and attention throughout its journey. Professionals can rely on our high caliber of experience to handle with little need for oversight, freeing professionals from the stress of moving art collections on their own.
Installation for Summer Exhibitions
If you are needing to prepare your summer exhibition for viewing, our team comprises experienced professionals who understand the intricacies of properly positioning and displaying artwork. We collaborate closely with artists and galleries to ensure that their vision is realized, creating an immersive and captivating experience for viewers.
Our team takes pride in providing comprehensive solutions to artists and gallerists, end-to-end throughout the process. If you are moving art collections in and out relatively quickly, we can uninstall, recrate, reinstall, and return your collection to storage at the end of the summer exhibition season.
Trust us to handle your shipping artwork needs, art crating, and fine art shipping, allowing you to focus on what truly matters—the influence and beauty of the collection.
