What Exactly is the White Glove Courier Service?

When it comes to delivery, transportation, and logistics, you may often come across the term “white glove courier service.” What does this mean? Why specifically “white glove”? How does such service differ from a conventional shipping company? What range and standard of services should you expect from such an organization? Let’s discuss all this in detail to see how Fine Art Shippers fits the term and goes above and beyond in the sphere of shipping, handling, and courier delivery.

When we speak about a white glove courier service, the first thing coming to mind is a perfectly trained and tidy butler or a waiter in some VIP restaurant. Representatives of these professions traditionally wear perfectly white gloves as a sign of their utmost care for ideal execution of clients’ orders. By the same analogy, an art courier service of the highest standard is referred to as a white glove delivery service – the one in which handlers and shippers always walk the extra mile to leave customers satisfied.

Fine Art Shippers is a company proud to refer to itself as a white glove courier service because of the unchangeably high level of customer service quality, meticulous attention to detail, and fully individualized approach to each client’s situation and needs. We always conduct a preliminary appraisal of artworks and check out pick-up and delivery locations to develop an optimal route and artwork handling techniques. Our professional courier services in New York enjoy high demand among art collectors, museums, and auctions paying close attention to how their property is moved and shipped.
