Some people believe that to ship fine art means to simply carefully pack and transport the valuable cargo to its destination. However, while proper packing and safe transportation are indeed essential for moving artwork, professional fine art shipping is a much more complicated process. If you have ever moved a collection of paintings, a heavy vintage piano, a large outdoor sculpture, or any other oversized artwork, you know what it means. The reality is that art packing and transportation services are not always enough. Sometimes you need a complex approach to the shipping problem, which can be offered by professional art moving companies only.
At Fine Art Shippers, we have been working with private and corporate collectors, galleries, museums, artists, and art dealers for more than 20 years, constantly improving and expanding our art shipping services in order to meet more diverse client needs. For today, we offer a full spectrum of services that may be required when moving art and antiques, including installation, custom crating, art shuttle, white glove courier, insurance, and, what is especially important, fine art storage.

Thereby, whether it comes to a traveling exhibition, a large art collection, or you simply need to store your valuables for some time before or after the move, we are sure to provide you with the best storage solution in almost any city.
