Insurance of fine art is an indispensable element of every stage of such valuable objects’ transportation. Based on our prior experience and professional guidelines of the industry, we do not only recommend, but literally consider it mandatory for our clients to use insurance for their art works during transportation. It is true that air and sea transportation modes are highly safe and secure, but there are many unforeseen circumstances that you should consider as potentially possible before you make insurance-related decisions. From our side, we offer the whole scope of insurance consulting and assistance services to simplify your art appraisal and fine arts insurance procedures. We also advise the best insurance packages suiting specifically your situation, so that you could act in an informed way and save money on redundant services. Our partnering companies provide specialized insurance services for the sector of fine art, meeting specific demands for security of art works, and taking care of the customer’s most sophisticated needs and expectations. The most widespread insurance types protect fine art works from burglary, fire, flood, loss, and a disastrous impact of natural disasters and other natural contingencies.
As soon as it comes to selection of insurance options for your art collections, there are many aspects and factors for you to consider before making the final moves. First, you should take into account the price of your artwork, its size, weight, and material of which it is made, which affects its fragility. As a culture connoisseur, you should understand that the value of many art works is not their factual price, but their rarity and cultural legacy value associated with them. Therefore, close collaboration with an art insurance company throughout the process of transportation may become a wise decision that will help you secure your property and preserve cultural artifacts of the humanity. Second, you should keep in mind whether your transportation requires national or international shipping so that Fine Art Shippers can advise the proper route.
We organize the whole package of insurance for international shipping of any objects, including art insurance, gallery insurance, museum insurance, or painting insurance. Fine Art Shippers help with the process of acquiring insurance for artwork that our workers pick up from their initial point and until its delivery to the company’s warehouse. Storage of your art items in our warehouse is also subject to full insurance coverage guaranteeing protection from theft or damage, and you may be assured about their safety until their delivery to the sea port or airport, and their departure from the country in case of international shipping. After your works of art leave the country of their departure, we recommend our clients to acquire the third-party insurance type and assist in provision of umbrella or third-party insurance during the cargo’s transit. Such measures that we undertake for each item’s transportation may save you money and unnecessary headache, so that you rest assured that your property is fully secure at any point of its transportation process.
