Art storage is an integral component of art transportation and one of the most vital services that any reputable fine art logistics company has to provide. After all, if you need to ship fine art prints, paintings, or antiques, you may need to store them for some time to arrange the shipping process and 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, from a single oil painting to an entire collection of art, are stored in our secure storage facility in Upper Manhattan. In collaboration with Arcis, we offer professional art storage services in a state-of-the-art facility in New York City. Our art storage was designed together with specialists from the Van Gogh Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art. It is engineered to museum-level specifications to maintain optimal temperature and humidity. Hence, you may rest assured that your property is stored safely under our responsibility.

Fine Art Shippers’ art storage facility in Upper Manhattan is a stronghold designed for the safekeeping of art. It is outfitted with early-warning smoke detection, burglary, and fire alarm systems and is protected against bacterial growth and mineral dust accumulation.

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. At Fine Art Shippers, we believe that all works of art are unique and precious cultural artifacts, no matter whether they are contemporary or antique, so the security of artworks in our storage is incomplete without insurance.

Fine Art Shippers provides professional art storage services to private collectors, galleries, museums, auction houses, and art organizations and can develop individually tailored solutions for any kind of art that our clients need to store.

A common situation with which art collectors often have to deal is using an art storage facility upon collecting their newly acquired pieces from an auction house or gallery and preparing them for overseas transportation. To properly pack and crate works of art is sometimes a lengthy process, which requires time to ensure that all items are prepared for a long journey with care and attention to detail. Art dealers, galleries, and museums also often need art storage services when shipping fine art in large quantities. In such a situation, our cutting-edge storage facility is the best choice in Manhattan to keep artworks until everything is ready for international shipment. Such services are also highly suitable for art collectors purchasing bulky furniture or sculptural pieces. Besides, Fine Art Shippers arranges individual shipping 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 storage facility and make one shipment to save their money and time.

At Fine Art Shippers, we provide cost-effective art storage options to meet the needs of any client. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or art shipping inquiries you might have.
