All our vehicles also come with a loading platform to make deliveries easier, regardless of location. Our fine art transport services are available locally across Quebec and Canada, as well as in the United States.
An experienced team of dedicated artwork shippers
Whether you decide on a one-time or turnkey service, our staff will treat your artworks with the utmost care every step of the way.
Throughout the process, our team of professionals handles each piece of art with delicacy and attention to detail. Moreover, our dedicated staff comprises experienced drivers, technicians with a degree in museology and artists with the knowledge and skills needed to handle, pack, install, crate and transport paintings and other pieces of art. In total, our field team has over a century of collective expertise.
Given that each piece is unique, and that creativity knows no bounds, we can also look after artworks in non-standard formats. No matter the size, shape, medium or monetary value of the art to be transported, we always adopt the highest concern for precision and safety, both for your works of art and for our personnel.
