Transport

Delivering your artwork worldwide

Coupled with our facility in Scotland, we provide a variety of transport options. Whether by road, air or sea, your objects will arrive at their destination safely and securely.

Our established relationship with companies throughout the world means we can transport your works nationwide, with comprehensive insurance if required.

ROAD FREIGHT

We offer dedicated sole-use vehicles, part-load or consolidated options, depending on your requirements.

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.

Not only are our staff experienced in dealing with courier-accompanied shipments, but we offer training for those accompanying works by road or air. As a comprehensive guide, we also provide ‘The Art of Couriering’ brochure on request.

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