Premier Fine Art Shipping
Whether you are completing a fine art sale or moving an entire art exhibit, Museum Choice Crating and Shipping offers logistics solutions customized to meet your unique needs. Your personal shipping consultant will meet with you to assess your artwork, including value, environmental considerations, packaging details, and pick-up and delivery factors. We will map out the optimal means of transportation (via air, ground or ocean), and the best route to get your art to its final destination safely and on-time. Museum Choice Crating and Shipping offers a patented “smart” shipping system – The Floating Crate – which provides a level of protection and security that no other art shipper can offer. Each crate will be engineered and constructed specifically for your artwork.
Your dedicated team of fine art movers will individually package each piece of art, providing you with digital documentation. We will transport your masterwork in a climate controlled vehicle, and if your fine art requires added security, we offer air courier accompaniment. At its final destination, we will perform white glove delivery and expert installation – a full-service experience unparalleled in the art world.
