Fine Art & Antiques Shipping

From the world’s finest painting to your family’s 200-year old heirloom, Crate Pros is your trusted provider to protect each piece in a unique custom curated crate, with protective packaging that will ensure your one of a kind keepsake arrives in the same condition when we picked it up.

The following information about your artwork or antique will allow us to design and estimate the packaging necessary for professional packing, crating, shipping, insurance, and delivery: photos, dimensions, weight, artwork medium (acrylic on canvas, photograph under glass), insurance value, temperature or humidity requirements, and destination delivery instructions.

Crate Pros verifies dimensions once the item is received in our facility, and by inputting this data into our state of the art crate design and estimation software, our highly skilled craftsmen are able to use the exact cushioning, padding, and crate materials needed to securely pack your one-of-a-kind treasure, whether it is a painting, sculpture, pie safe, antique dining table, or any other fragile, delicate, high-value item that you want to ensure arrives at its destination safely.

In order to provide you piece of mind in your journey with Crate Pros, it is important to mention that your artwork or antiques are fully insured from the time of pick-up through their delivery at the destination. Crate Pros offers industry-leading full-value shipper’s interest cargo insurance that protects your property once it departs our custom crating facility.

Whether we are working with a museum, gallery, auction house, or individual art collector, Crate Pros provides industry-leading customer service and communication throughout the entire process that keeps the customer informed through photos, emails, texts, shipment tracking number updates, and proof of delivery.

Project Spotlight

Custom Oversized Wood Inlayed Art Crating & Shipping to California

Crate Pros regularly works with art galleries and interior designers to help connect them with their clientele worldwide. By allowing us to provide turnkey logistic services from their gallery or studio all the way to the delivery of the art to their customer, the artists, designers, and galleries can focus their time on their art and customers. In the project shown below, we crated this oversized piece that was 9 feet long and 4 feet wide. By designing a crate that can be shipped upright on its edge, we minimized the stress on the piece. In addition, by using the A-Frame to keep it upright, we also prevented any heavy items being placed on top of the crate during transit. This art was expertly packed with 1″ foam on all sides, which helps cushion the art while helping to absorb shock and bumps in its journey to the customer. Lastly, our crates are sealed with the customer in mind. We create easy access to the piece by using screws on all crate portions that need to be removed to in order to access the artwork.
