Transportation and packaging of a single item, an entire exhibition or a complete collection: it is in our capable hands. Moreover, we conduct this specialist’s business in an efficient, climate controlled and sustainable manner. This enables us to save costs without compromising the quality of the execution.
Competent art handlers
All art handlers at De Wit Art Handling are severely selected professionals. They completed the professional training in Art Handling and can produce a VCA Safety Training certificate, as well as a Certificate of Conduct. Our handlers escort the transport of your valuables – from packing to unpacking; optimal service and maximal discretion.
De Wit Art Handling has a standard transport and storage insurance, if desired we can provide an appropriate additional insurance.
Quality and sustainability
De Wit Art Handling is certified according to both ISO 9001 (internationally acknowledged quality standard) and VCA (safety standard). Apart from quality and safety, sustainability is one of our key policies. This is why we applied for (and were granted) ISO 14001 (internationally acknowledged sustainability standard). Participating in environment projects (both nationally and internationally), De Wit Art Handling formally is CO2 neutral. In order to further reduce our carbon footprint, we advanced the renewal of our fleet and we purchase external services as ‘green’ as possible. We also use sustainable and recyclable materials.
Museum and gallery service
De Wit Art Handling is extensively experienced in preparing, organizing and executing a wide range of projects besides the art transportation, in which we proactively consult with our customers regarding timing, efficiency and cost control.
Cleaning of depots and objects
Registration of collections
The real ‘art’ of art transport lies in the packaging of the objects.
De Wit Art Handling assesses the optimal packaging per object for each art transport. Of course, De Wit Art Handling ensures the use of custom made ‘climate crates’ for the most vulnerable and most precious items. However, not all objects and paintings require this kind of solution. De Wit Art Handling also packs risk-free and without loss of quality in our specially designed reusable plastic packaging.
De Wit Art Handling uses a modern fleet of trucks and vans for the transportation of art by road. The cargo hold of every truck and van is climate controlled, air suspended and is equipped with the latest ’track-and-trace system’. If suitable transport is necessary due to the size of a work of art, we will organize special transport. We also take care of the necessary liaisons with police, security and other parties involved, to ensure a flawless transportation.
De Wit Art Handling is associated with a large, worldwide network of specialized art transporters. We provide secure, efficient and sustainable transportation of your art and antiques – to every destination thinkable. De Wit Art Handling can take care of all extra administration incorporated with transportation including customs formalities for transport across the border.
Storage of art & antiques
De Wit Art Handling has closely guarded storage depots available equipped with the right climate control systems for temporary and long-term storage of your art and antiques (collection).
