Transfer of Artworks

One of the functions of museums and also of culture lovers is to spread art. For this reason, on many occasions we are forced to carry out the transfer of paintings, sculptures, etc. to other cities and countries. These are works of great economic value and incalculable artistic value.

It is here that our company plays an important role, first understanding the importance of preserving the work and then proposing the lines of action that allow this transit to be safe. With specific training, the appropriate means and the necessary experience in the transport of delicate goods, we can propose a customized project for the transfer of paintings, sculptures and other artistic goods.
