OPTIMAL PROTECTION FOR PRICELESS ASSETS
Crating, Packaging, and Shipping Services for Museum Valuables in Chicago
We provide traveling exhibit packing and crating services for museums around the country. With nearly three decades of experience in conservation handling, preparation, and packaging of items such as paintings, paper, stone, plaster, furniture, wood objects, and textiles, we know how to meet museum and conservation standards, and protect items during storage, handling, and transportation.
Expert Exhibit Packing & Crating
Every crating solution we design provides exceptional cushioning and optimal stability to ensure items can tolerate any mode of transportation. Our crates are also designed for repeated use. In building them, we consider the type of item, its age and condition, climate, humidity and temperature conditions at origin, during transport, and at the destination. We also account for shock and vibration during handling, storage, and transportation.
