ARTUAE LOGISTICS & STORAGE
A complete exhibitions service
This is the foundation of our business at ARTUAE Fine Art – packing and transporting valuable works of art anywhere in the world.Our range of experience in support of museums includes every aspect of planning exhibitions or logistics, from single art works to entire collections.Where possible, we use Crown Fine Art specialist operations in the country of origin as well as the exhibition location. This makes planning and execution more efficient, as it reduces the coordination effort, the paperwork, and the possible risk associated with more supplier handovers.
We organise the entire process, including skilled packing, customised crating, careful collection, transportation to destination, delicate unpacking, installation and hanging.We will normally coordinate couriers and all transportation details including tickets, hotels, and customs formalities – making it a seamless service.With a detailed and precisely timed plan, we can guarantee that art works are always where you expect them to be.
We offer short- and long-term fine art storage options, from climate-controlled art storage to discrete areas for individual collections.
The customs bonded warehouse status, with a designated temporary storage area for items in transit, allows our clients to see and examine artworks before customs duties are paid.
Additionally, two dedicated viewing areas provide space for photography, viewing and condition reporting.

Our state-of-the-art, secure warehouse, built to our exacting specifications in 2010, is continuously monitored, and equipped with intruder alarms and fire protection systems. It is approved by leading international insurance companies, and meets the stringent requirements of the UK Government Indemnity Scheme, and the Arts Council’s National Museum Security Adviser.
We recognise the need for complete client confidentiality while managing the physical security of the art works through structured risk management procedures. On-going specialised security awareness training is provided for all staff to ensure procedures are constantly monitored and improved.
- packing crates, from standard commercial cases to full museum specification. To ensure your works of art receive the best possible level of protection our experts assess a number of criteria including the type of artwork, its condition, and the mode of transport. This allows us to select the most appropriate packaging solution ensuring that the packed objects are safe from any environmental, manual or mechanical hazards.
As we constantly strive for innovative solutions, we are often called upon to design and fabricate bespoke elements to support and protect artwork in transit, during installation or storage.
