Moving art abroad

Moving art to a new destination

Moving art abroad requires a lot of care and attention, especially when you are moving high-value art pieces. Transport poses a risk because your items are handled by several people and machines. This means your goods should be transported by experts. Transpack ensures that it is the case!

Moving art safely

Transpack works with experienced packers and logistics companies to make sure your goods are safely transported across the globe.

Prior to the move, we always schedule a video inspection in order to make a good estimate of the art items and take careful note of what needs extra attention. We can also pay you a visit to conduct a survey in person. The results of the survey will be discussed in detail with the packers so they are also aware of all the ins and outs of your move.

Using the correct packaging materials

Transporting art requires correct usage of packing materials. Transpack uses all sorts of materials so you can be sure that every kind of art, big or small can be packed safely. It is also possible to have a custom-made crate for any object. A crate ensures that the art object is safe in the container and prevents any danger of it being bumped into. A crate can be made to measure for statues, antique clocks or paintings. In a custom-made crate, you can place several paintings which will remain separated from each other in the crate.

Transpack can advise you on the best option for the safe transport of your art.  Of course, you can also insure your artwork with Transpack.
