Protecting Your Art During Transportation

Pall Mall Art Advisors featured an article from us with tips on services, transportation, and insurance.  

At Atelier, we have seen it all! Plastic stuck to the face of an important Andy Warhol screen print, a heavy marble sculpture packed in a scrap-wood crate with only hay acting as a cushion, a crate arriving with only duct tape holding the lid on. In all of these cases, the short-cuts were misguided efforts to save a little money. But conservation costs, insurance coordination, and re-tracing where things went wrong results in the loss of even more time and resources.

Atelier's Founder Interviewed on The Whitney Move

April 29, 2014

The New York Times interviewed Hal Jones, Atelier Art Services & Storage Founder, For the Whitney’s Move, Boxes and Burly Men Just Won’t Do.

The company [Atelier Art Services & Storage] spent six months creating the packaging for the Barnes move. Crates were packed inside of crates. Art was insulated with specialized foam, which was customized, based on the weight of each object.

The art traveled in Atelier’s climate-controlled trucks, which are equipped with a cushioning suspension system. Not all the art went over at once, to avoid attracting attention and snarling traffic. - Robin Pogrebin for The New York Times
