Specialists in fine art transportation
We have more than 40 branches across Australia and New Zealand and an extensive international partner network. From handling single artworks to large, complex touring exhibitions, we are your best choice for highly specialised local, interstate and international art and antique relocation services, all tailored to your unique needs.
Precisely tailored to your needs
Our experienced team successfully coordinate the transport and handling of high-risk and fragile items, such as museum exhibits and valuable artefacts. No matter what the size, shape, value or destination, we can customise a logistic solution to meet your needs.
Packed with care and respect
Unlike many household removals companies, we understand art as a unique asset class with highly particular handling and documentation requirements. Our fine art handlers are dedicated specialists accustomed to working within gallery environments. Our experts are familiar with sensitive artwork surfaces and structures and are able to specify and supply a range of archival packing and wrapping materials.
Attention to detail is everything
In addition to high-quality packing materials, we can also design and construct custom foam lined museum standard transit and travel crates for every transport or storage requirement. Our impressive fleet of air ride, climate controlled vehicles are engineered to ensure everything arrives in the same condition we collected it.
Tracked every step of the way
We securely manage your items from beginning to end via our electronic asset management system. This allows us to always track your collection by utilising barcoding technology, motion sensors to monitor adverse movement during transit, and electronic consignment tracking.
