Our team of logistics experts have significant experience of working with private clients and collectors, as well as galleries, museums, auction houses and dealers.

Cadogan Tate Fine Art has specialist art storage facilities in London, Paris, the Côte d'Azur, New York and Los Angeles.
We offer the following scheduled art transportation services
When it comes to shipping works of art, the right method will depend on the piece in question, but in all cases the items will need to be carefully wrapped and packaged.
For fine art shipments within the UK, we offer the Around Britain delivery and collection service. A satellite-tracked lorry with air-ride suspension that travels the country, stopping at each destination to either pick up or drop off consignments as required.
Shipping artwork around Europe is carried out in a similar way, with daily delivery and collection shuttles to locations around Paris. Groupage service can be arranged to locations around the continent, while trips to London, Geneva, Zurich and the Côte d'Azur are scheduled on a weekly basis.
In addition, shipping paintings overseas can be achieved with the help of consolidated air and sea containers - and if you're looking to move works of art around the US, a variety of local and coast-to-coast services are available.
Depending on where the piece is going, our fine art shipping service can include advice about importing and exporting high-value goods, as well as the information about the customs regulations of each region. We also offer an inventory service and if you need to store items for any length of time, we can help with that too.
Cadogan Tate has been purchasing fine art moving insurance for over 30 years and can arrange competitive cover on excellent terms for amounts that are significantly higher than most competitors. Cadogan Tate Insurance Services is regulated and authorised by the FSA (Financial Services Authority). We can immediately arrange insurance cover for values of up to £15 million with cover to any amount at an hour's notice.
It doesn't matter how large, small or fragile your work of art is, or where it needs to go, Cadogan Tate's specialist fine art shippers can help.
Over the years, we have worked on projects ranging from moving single items through to large collections, as well as priceless items covered by government indemnity.
