How our fine art storage works

A bespoke service for every client

Whether you are looking to store a single painting or a full collection, we always ensure that you get the same extraordinary level of service.

We ensure that every piece is digitally photographed and documented with a full condition report. Every piece of art is carefully stored inside a custom-built secure crate, made for that specific piece. Our professional and highly experienced art handlers manage the full collection process and your artwork is stored in a consistently ambient and/or temperature/humidity controlled environment.

We pride ourselves on the level of service that we deliver and the level of security that we provide our clients.

Maximum security with temperature & humidity control

Our 100,000 sq ft facility was purpose-built to be at the forefront of the industry in regards to safety and security.

Our steel containers are the ultimate in high-security storage. They are kept inside our purpose-built facility so do not suffer from changes in weather etc. They are fireproof and extremely secure as you can lock them with your own padlocks. We also stack them on top of one another within our warehouses meaning that even if an intruder bypassed the security systems we have in place, they still wouldn’t be able to get up to the container or inside.

We use a specialised range of temperature and humidity-controlled steel containers for fine art and atmospherically sensitive property that ensures your property is not only physically secure but completely safe.

Specialist handling staff & equipment

We have specialist fine art handling teams who are trained to the highest standard, have a wealth of experience and are well equipped to handle the most delicate and fragile of fine art removals and storage.

Our teams have completed projects for some of the most discerning collectors including priceless statues, oversized china elephants, modular horses and masterpiece paintings.
