Protecting your fine art during storage and transportation is crucial. That’s why many artists, collectors, and museums use a professional facility. As you’re preparing your pieces for transport, discover the benefits of utilizing a fine art storage facility instead of a personal storage space.
Benefits of a Fine Art Storage Facility
Fine art storage facilities, like those at Art Work FAS, are ideal for storing pieces for any length of time. They offer a multitude of benefits including secure locations, protection from all-weather elements, and even restoration and conservation fine art services.
Safety and Security
These spaces are located in secure locations to keep your art pieces protected from all elements, including criminal ones. All of our fine art storage facilities meet the standards of fine art insurers. With restricted access onsite and layers of security within the building, you can be confident in our security. All facilities are covered by CCTV surveillance, remote access and security management by our staff, and 24/7 alarm system monitored by a UL-listed Central Monitoring Station. This system ensures that we are adhering to the industry’s highest safety and quality standards and your art is secure at all times.
We understand how detrimental extreme temperatures can be to your art. That’s why all of our facilities are climate-controlled with 24-hour monitoring. We also maintain a constant temperature and humidity level, but the security doesn’t end there. In case of an emergency, we have an advanced system for moisture detection, as well as fire suppression systems to prevent the spread and damage of any environmental events. You can rest assured that your artwork is always protected.
Restoration and Conservation
While in storage, your collection or piece of art can get a little TLC during its stay. Our network of conservationists specializes in a wide variety of mediums and can restore your art while in our facility. We can also assist in the identification of the ideal conservator, negotiate secure transportation of your piece to their studio, or coordinate restoration on-site at one of our facilities.
At Art Work FAS, our storage facilities use the most advanced technology and high-quality fine art services to ensure the safety and security of your art.
