Art Transportation

IMG_0741ICA – Art Conservation offers comprehensive object/exhibition travel logistics beginning with object assessment and conservation recommendations for safe handling and transport of client artwork. Available services include condition reporting, deinstallation, packing/crating, transport, courier service, and reinstallation of artwork, including everything from mounted artifacts to outdoor sculpture, as needed.

ICA is able to arrange fine art ground transportation solutions throughout the United States. Within our network of providers, ICA can arrange the safe transport of your art work or exhibition. We can assist with fine art shuttle and exclusive use transport services.

All vehicles are dual driver, equipped with air-ride, climate controls, lift-gates, and GPS tracking. In addition to straight trucks, tractor trailers, and high cubes, ICA can arrange for specialty flatbed equipment including Conestoga, drop deck, and roll-back flatbeds as well.

The ICA recommends the use of courier services for transporting high value and/or fragile pieces, particularly when the handling of the object requires special supervision and guidance.  We offer “door to door” fine art courier services in which a conservator or registrar travels with an object at all times. ICA couriers can also oversee installation and de-installation of artwork. Condition checking—prior to departure and upon arrival—can be supplied as needed.

Please contact ICA’s Art Transport Manager/Preparator, Charles Eiben, for additional information, or to arrange transportation services.
