Our rich and invaluable experience in the field of fine art shipping has earned us a good reputation among art galleries, and we help our clients to organize shipping of artwork quickly, efficiently, and safely. We ship all kinds of art, and know how to work with fragile and exclusive items’ shipping. Hence, our flawless reputation and positive reviews of clients make us your ideal art transportation and inventory management company to which you can entrust your precious fine art.
The story of our business began with a Gallery in the Chelsea Antique Center in 1995, specializing in sales of primarily European art and antiques, Decorative items, and exclusive art deco porcelain items of all sizes. Our services further expanded to include decorative art and paintings, and soon included logistics and shipping for several Art Deco furniture decorators. Through this period, we have been providing excellent art shipping and expedite services, collecting satisfied reviews, and developing smart management solutions for all shipping art requests, be it a home collection, an art store, or an entire gallery.
Our clients are private collectors – individuals, art dealers, and art galleries – that purchase from art galleries and auction houses like Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Doyle, Bonhams, Philips, Shapiro Auctions, etc. Anyone who buys works of fine art directly from auction houses and requires their delivery to any place within the United States or to another country can turn to us for timely, safe, and professional art shipping services. We also work with art galleries (Show Place Antiques, David Ashville Galleries) and offer services to their buyers of fine art and antiques. We help modern artists in moving their expositions within one country or internationally, and had a fruitful partnership with Shimon Okshteyn on packing, delivering and unpacking his exposition during its international tour. Other clients that we service include galleries, private art collectors, antique centers, antique shows such as the Miami beach antique and jewelry show, and cultural exchanges that require assistance with moving, packing, and unpacking their expositions.
Fine art shipping is a field of work requiring individualized solutions and high-quality shipment services; sometimes the fine art items are so precious and fragile that they need conservation and delicate handling throughout the whole shipping process.
Hence, we have designed a simple and effective logistics process involving the personal pick up of art and antique items from galleries and antique houses, careful packing and crating thereof, and its timely delivery to its place of destination. This process requires much professionalism and attention to detail, so we hired a team of skilled, experienced craftsmen who produce our crates according to all standards of engineering and safe construction, and professionally trained art handlers and delivery workers. We are constantly present during the whole transportation process and we guarantee that your works of art are handled by our permanent professionally certified staff, and are not outsourced to some other transportation service providers.
The critical factor of our success as art movers and fine art shippers across the USA and globally is that we take care of all the insurance, declaration papers, and documentation for you, and we declare your fine art items with the international insurance companies and customs brokers. International transportation of art is also a bothersome process, but we take all responsibility for shipping your art to the airport and shipping it out through our partnering freight forwarders who offer express and smart solutions for fine art transportation. However, if your work of art is a small-size item, we may ship it to you through FedEx.
Being a small business and a family-oriented company, and working on everything ourselves, we are able to offer very competitive pricing of any other big companies who usually charge a huge amount of overhead costs from their clients, and who outsource transportation processes to third-party personnel. Hence, as you may make sure, our company is unique in approach to clients and the art shipping process overall. We differ from other art shipping companies by having professional and safe art transport, providing the whole scope of transport services, and taking care of all critical issues that may occur during the process of transportation. Moreover, we are 100% confident in our ability to provide the lowest shipping rates in the entire USA and globally, so turning to us will undoubtedly be a wise decision for everyone looking for high quality, customized approach, and best pricing guaranteed.
