TRANSPORT AND INSURANCE

We understand the vulnerability of art in transit and work closely with each client to identify individual transportation challenges.

As G4Si we have one of the largest and most secure networks of air, land and sea support in the world resulting in the rapid and cost-effective transportation of your precious items to even the most remote locales.  Operating in over 120 countries, our experienced team of fine art logistics experts are in tune with the sensitivities of art in transit.

We work closely with each client to establish their unique requirements and implement cost-efficient solutions that lead standards of safety and quality. Our comprehensive services include the preparation of customs formalities, hand-carry and courier services, as well as Nail-to-Nail insurance cover. Leveraging the reach of our mother company G4S PLC - the world's largest security provider - we have the advantage of advanced security services including tarmac supervisions, security escorts, on-board couriers, and guarding.

BY LAND

Our fine art vehicles protect even the most sensitive artworks with climate control, air suspension, GPS tracking and alarm systems built-in as standard. Each vehicle is manned by two technicians, both qualified drivers and trained art handlers, that remain on-site to undertake packing and unpacking as required.

BY SEA

Temperature-controlled and protected. From sole-use containers ideal for large-scale artworks and extensive collections to consolidated consignments, our sea freight options adapt to the irregular and unpredictable forms, fragility and weight brackets associated with fine art.

BY AIR

Expertly efficient, our airfreight teams work closely with carriers and airport authorities to ensure the safe and controlled execution of shipment. We ensure that your cargo is packed, marked and securely handed over to the airline whilst taking care of all customs and inspection formalities. Operating from most major airports, our team provides the option of tarmac and palettization supervision, courier services and hand-carry arrangements.
