Antiques & Fine Art
Move with care
We offer specialist collection and delivery services for collectors, auction houses and galleries. Where antiques or fine art pieces are included in a relocation, these will of course be handled with the highest degree of care.
The techniques required for each item are different of course. Some furniture can be export wrapped using the gold-standard Jiffy furnisoft materials, whereas other antiques and works of art need purpose-built crates. Pianos are typical examples, particularly when they are moving overseas. Below you can see one of the many we have moved – this Bosendorfer piano was crated and moved to a Greek island. We can custom-build crates to each item as required, and we have created many unique examples in the past, from crates that allow a barometer to sit at exactly 45 degrees throughout transport, to crates for 10′ high statues.
We can also provide dedicated express shipments if time is of the essence. Want a single piece of art transported to Mykonos in time for a party? No problem, we can help (this is an actual real-life example). If you need a dedicated vehicle for a shipment to anywhere in Europe, it is no problem for us.
Art and antiques are not the only valuable things we move of course – universities trust us with valuable books and laboratories trust us to move highly sensitive and valuable equipment, such as this recent move of almost £700,000 worth of scientific equipment.
Please don’t hesitate to ask us for a quotation, we would be happy to help.
