Transport of
art works and
valuable objects

During a transfer in France or abroad, the transport stage is always the most risky for a work. During the move, the work may suffer material damage but also risks of theft or loss, with irreparable consequences.

This is why our specialised teams carefully study the most suitable means of transport for each situation. They support you from the preparation of the crates and their loading, to transport in a dedicated and geolocated vehicle and then to unloading.

Throughout your project, a project coordination unit will support you and keep you informed of the progress of the transport to the final destination for complete peace of mind.
