Fine art professionals, including museum and art gallery curators, know the dangers the winter climate of the Pacific Northwest pose to fine artwork during art delivery and transportation. Extreme changes in temperatures can cause frames, canvases, and sculptures to expand and shrink, potentially compromising the integrity of your fine art pieces. Even the smallest amounts of moisture can cause noticeable damage to valuable pieces, leading to bleeding, fading, and stretching. The finest art logistics experts for your needs will be one that takes every precaution to protect your investment.
The expert team at Art Work Fine Art Services offers white glove, Exclusive Delivery services that go above and beyond our art handling services. We offer peace of mind to art professionals, whether they are shipping a single piece or an entire collection.
How Exclusive Art Transportation Protects Your Art from the Pacific Northwest Weather
Shared art transport from other carriers often makes several stops, inviting potential danger with repeated door openings. This could invite moisture or temperature dangers to your work. White glove service and delivery means that Art Work Fine Art Services will dedicate a truck and team focused on your shipment exclusively.
Exclusive delivery, available anywhere in the continental U.S., reduces risk to the shipment because every part of the shipment is handled by the Art Work FAS team without stops during transportation. Because there are no stops, the doors are only opened twice: during pick-up and during delivery, meaning that your pieces have the protection they need from the harsh winter or any other elements that may crop up.
Those who hire Art Work Fine Art Services for exclusive delivery enjoy:
- Controlled climate throughout the entire transportation trip
- A direct path from point A to B, meaning that your work stays away from the warehouse for the shortest amount of time possible
- A team of the highest caliber, professionally-trained individuals with an exclusive focus on your shipment performing the loading and unloading of your pieces
Why Dedicated Art Delivery May be the Best Option for You
The importance of bespoke fine art solutions for transportation cannot be overstated when it comes to valuable artwork and antiques. This allows the team to create customized solutions designed to meet the specific needs of your transportation project. Exclusive Delivery may be the best option for you if:
- You desire the highest caliber of attention dedicated to your high-value collection
- Loan agreements or insurance requirements for museums or brokers state that artwork must be collected and delivered directly to the receiver without stops
- You wish to collect or deliver to or from remote or rural locations
