Delivering a world class service

We offer every method of transport, both nationally and globally. Whether by road, air or sea, you can be sure it will get to its destination as safely and as cost-effectively as possible. Our relationship with companies throughout the world allows us to transport your works internationally at a competitive price and with comprehensive coverage and nail-to nail insurance, if required.

Road, sea & air

Coupled with our facility in Edinburgh, we can cover the entire United Kingdom and beyond, offering dedicated, sole-use vehicles or competitive part-load or consolidated options, depending on which best meets your needs.

Our fleet of specialist vehicles is fully alarmed and equipped with GPS tracking systems, climate (environmental) control and air-ride suspension. Our tracking system is monitored by us and not by a third-party.

Having full airside tarmac access at UK Airports enables us to offer the highest level of security and safety for your objects. We retain full-security air-side passes for access at UK airports, including the primary hubs of London’s Heathrow and Gatwick Airports and Glasgow’s Prestwick Airport.

Should you wish to send your consignments by sea, we have staff trained in all methods of sea freight shipment, providing you with a more cost-effective method of transportation.

Care every step of the way

Not only are our staff fully prepared and experienced in dealing with courier-accompanied shipments but we offer training for those accompanying works by road or air. ‘The Art of Couriering’ brochure is available on request.

We handle couriers with as much care as objects and have a team of airport representatives to supervise the shipments under our protection. All arrangements, including travel and subsistence, are arranged in-house with a system designed to enable a full overview of the courier’s requirements. Personal travel insurance for couriers is also available.

We’ve got it all wrapped up

One size doesn’t fit all, which is why when it comes to packing and case-making, our skilled craftsmen offer bespoke solutions that work, with safety and security as paramount concerns.

Whether you are transporting an entire exhibition or a miniature portrait, we can provide quality, high-grade crating, all of which is constructed to ISPM-15 regulations.

Our packing follows museum best practice as specified by the Tate and the National Gallery. Any conventional and sometimes unconventional means of packing and crating can be undertaken, with a quality finish built to your standard.
