Fine Art Services > Crate & Pack
Art Work Fine Art Services offers a complete range of Packing & Crating options designed to ensure the security and protection of your valued objects.
From slat-crating a single painting for a domestic move, to constructing multi-venue traveling exhibition crates for international travel, we cater to your specific shipping and handling requirements with the safety of your objects as our top priority.
All our crates are custom built to precisely fit your objects. Constructed entirely of high quality plywood, our crates are clearly stenciled with handling and orientation instructions. We utilize archival materials where needed and offer a range of custom options.
Standard ONE-WAY Crates
Most economical option for shipping. Good for both land and air travel both domestically and internationally. Many customizable options to meet the specific needs of objects being shipped.
Travel Frame/Slat Crates
Appropriate for art shuttle transport and storage. Lean and efficient, our T-frames are strong, lightweight, and finished with polyethylene sheeting to protect your art from dust.
Custom designed to be reused for the life of a traveling exhibition. Museum crates are Tyvek-lined and have sealed exteriors to minimize exposure to moisture. Options for crates include neoprene gaskets, bolt-and-plate closure, or cam-lock closure lids.
From soft wrapping for shuttle transport, to preparing your collection for a cross-country move, Art Work understands the unique requirements for handling fine art and antiques. We offer on-site consultation to determine the best packing and crating options, and we provide on-site packing and soft-wrapping using the latest archival material to ensure the safe and stable transport of your pieces.
Art Work Fine Art Services cares about our environment. We donate our wood waste and scrap ethafoam to area recyclers. We use reusable and recycled wrapping and packing products whenever possible.
