Art and Antique Packing and Crating

No task is too small for us. We’ve built a reputation around providing high quality workmanship  in crating and packing. Our in-house staff are certified in art handling and apply their “white glove” approach to boxing up your high value possessions.

The process begins with each piece carefully evaluated. A crate is designed and crafted specifically to the weight and size using the highest quality materials we can find. It’s constructed by hand, benefitting from the long-standing experience of our craters and advanced technology. We realize it’s an arduous process. But we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Our services include:

  • Premium wrapping and packing materials for one-way shipping
  • Durable quality one-way and round-trip crates, meeting museum quality standards as requested
  • Sturdy travel frames that exceed industry standards
  • Multiple use traveling exhibition crate
