Whether you are moving one artwork or an entire exhibition or collection, our expert and knowledgeable team can manage the logistics process for Galleries from start to finish. We strive to achieve the most competitive price whilst maintaining a very high quality service.
Collection and Delivery – Adam Crease Shipping can collect artwork from anywhere in the world on your behalf and have it delivered safely to your chosen address. We use only trusted partners who we are confident are professional and can handle your precious artwork safely. For domestic transport we have our own fleet of bespoke vehicles that have climate control, air-ride suspension, tail lifts and tracking. All vehicles have a minimum of two crew.
Artwork Case Making and Packing – Each artwork is individually assessed to ensure it is handled correctly. It is packed using the latest materials for ultimate protection and cased in fumigated wooden crates that meet international standards. Various materials can be used inside the crate to keep the artwork safe from abrasion and shock.
Transatlantic Groupage – Adam Crease is one of only a few companies that offer specialist transatlatic groupage especially for art and antiques. Please see our groupage schedule for next loading dates.
Customs Procedures – Adam Crease can handle all the customs procedures for importing and exporting your artwork. We have a bonded warehouse and temporary admission facility and our staff have an extensive understanding of export licences and import/export CITES licences. We also have a direct link to HMRC.
Art Installation – Once the artwork is delivered it can be carefully decanted out of the crate/s and installed. We can also remove the additional packing/debris.
Liability – Cadogan Tate offers entirely flexible liability arrangements. You can self-insure; we can provide insured Full Value Protection for up to £100 million (or any higher amount at half a day’s notice). Talk to our surveyor or our sales team. They will arrange matters as you wish.Back
“Many thanks for sending the team to place the marble piece in our garden yesterday. They did an excellent job and worked extremely hard to get it into position safely.”
