Art storage is an integral component of art transportation and one of the most vital services that any reputable fine art shipping company has to provide. After all, if you need to ship fine art or antiques, you may need to store them first for some time to arrange the shipping process and to ensure that everything is properly packed and crated.
At Fine Art Shippers, we provide comprehensive art packing and crating services, so we naturally need some time for crating and ensuring that the items are ready for their further transportation. During that process, all art and antique pieces, be it a single oil painting or an entire collection of art, are stored in our secure storage unit in Brooklyn, NY, which is approved by our insurance company. Hence, you may rest assured that your property is stored safely under our responsibility.
Since we consider art insurance a vital aspect of storing and shipping fine art, we usually do not accept artworks for storage if they are not fully insured and covered by our company’s insurance policy. At Fine Art Shippers, we believe that all works of art are unique and precious cultural artifacts, no matter whether they are modern or antique, so the security of artworks in our storage is incomplete without insurance. In addition, our art storage facility is equipped with a modern and sophisticated security system and an active alarm system guarding our clients’ property 24 hours a day. Our artwork transport company provides services for gallery storage, fine furniture storage, and we can develop individually tailored solutions for any kind of art that our clients need to store.
A common situation with which our clients often have to deal is using an art storage facility upon collecting their new purchase from an auction house or gallery and preparing it for international transportation. The process of packing and crating before these works of art can be shipped is sometimes lengthy, so we have to keep the clients’ property at our storage to ensure that it is properly and efficiently prepared for its long travel. Other cases involve fine art shipping in large quantities by art dealers, galleries, and museums, which often requires proper filling of containers for their further shipment by sea. In such a situation, we provide art storage services while the items are crated and until a sufficient amount of artworks is accumulated to fill a sea transportation container for the cost-efficiency of the shipment. Such shipment options are highly suitable for art collectors and art dealers purchasing art in large quantities, as well as for clients who buy large-sized furniture or sculpture items. Besides, Fine Art Shippers arranges individual shipment solutions for clients who need regular shipments, and instead of making 4-5 shipments that will cost a large sum of money, we accumulate several shipments at our warehouse and make one shipment to save their money and time.
At Fine Art Shippers, we can provide affordable art storage options to meet the needs of any client. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or artwork shipping problems you have.
