About Us

Fine Art Shippers is a New York-based family-owned company with a rich experience in the field of fine art shipping and a good reputation among the art community. We are proficient in shipping fine art of any kind and know exactly how to work with fragile and exclusive items, no matter their size and weight. Aimed at providing the highest quality artwork shipping services in the fastest and most efficient manner possible, Fine Art Shippers is the best option if you want your precious possessions to arrive at their destination safe and sound!

The story of our business began with a gallery in the Chelsea Antique Center in 1995. At that time, our small team of art shippers was specializing in moving European art and antiques, various decorative objects, and exclusive Art Deco porcelain and ceramic items. Our local fine art moving services further expanded to include large paintings, sculptures, and antique furniture pieces, which allowed our team to work with many reputable interior designers and decorators. For today, Fine Art Shippers is a reliable art transportation company providing a whole range of smart moving solutions, ranging from affordable art shuttles circulating across the United States every single week to antique furniture and piano moving to the international transportation of art and antiques.

Fine Art Shippers works with many art dealers and private collectors purchasing art from Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Doyle, Bonhams, Philips, and other reputable places. In fact, anyone who buys works of art directly from auction houses and requires their safe delivery to any destination within the United States or to another country can turn to us for timely and professional fine art shipping services. We also work with many art galleries (e.g., Impact Art Gallery, Peanut Gallery, Agora Gallery, David Ashville Galleries) and auction houses (e.g., Shapiro Auctions, Jackson’s, Roland Auctions, iGavel Auctions, Clarke Auction Gallery), offering their buyers white glove art courier services and affordable same day delivery options within the Tri-State Area.

In addition to our gallery and auction services, we also work with many talented contemporary artists, moving their artworks and whole expositions within the country and internationally. Besides, Fine Art Shippers is proficient in organizing various art exhibitions and shows, providing exhibitors and visitors with moving, packing, art installation, and many other art-related services. We also take part in such big and important annual events as the Original Miami Antique Show and the New York Architectural Digest Design Show.

Fine art shipping is a delicate job that often demands customized solutions and individual approach. Sometimes, fine art items are so precious and fragile that they need conservation and careful handling throughout the whole shipping process. For this reason, we have established a comprehensive and very effective approach to artwork shipping, involving the personal pick up of art and antique items, careful packing and crating, and their timely delivery to the destination. Since this process requires much professionalism and attention to detail, we work with only experienced art shippers and skilled craftsmen who can design and build custom wooden crates according to all standards of engineering and safe construction. What is no less important, we are constantly present during the whole process of art moving and never outsource our work to other fine art transport providers.

One more critical factor of our success as fine art shippers is that we take care of the art insurance, declaration papers, and documentation, providing our clients with the best artwork shipping experience ever. Besides, we take all responsibility for shipping fine art and antiques to the seaport or airport, as well as shipping them out through our partnering freight forwarders who offer express and smart solutions for any type of the art shipment.

Being a small business and a family-oriented art moving company working on everything ourselves, we are able to offer very competitive pricing, making our services cost-effective and affordable. As it becomes clear, Fine Art Shippers is indeed unique in approach to clients and the fine art shipping process overall. We differ from other companies by offering professional and safe artwork transport solutions, providing the whole scope of art moving, art packing, and art storage 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. In other words, turning to us is undoubtedly a wise decision for everyone looking for high-quality yet affordable fine art shipping services and customized approach to clients.
