Art Crating

Correct packing of a work of art begins with an understanding of the inherent nature its material and how it was made. By applying appropriate and cost-effective solutions, we create an optimal protective envelope around the work to ensure its stable and safe transit. Managing for shock and vibration, thermal and moisture variance are balanced with simple solutions for unpacking and repacking of the object while considering the reusability and biodegradability of the materials used.

Through innovative design we have developed a full range of art packaging services, from simple, quick plywood shipping boxes, to traditional crates, to high-tech cases, all built for the safe and economical transport of art objects.
