The range of works of art and their insurance is as diverse as art itself and the people who love art. Our extensive network within the art world and our experienced support team take all this into consideration - individually and proactive.
Our cooperation with specialized art insurance brokers provides you with insurance coverage for any kind of art - at special and advantageous terms and conditions.
The experience of both the world's leading specialized insurance company concerning art and collectors' items and the Kunsttrans offer unique terms and conditions of risk coverage. Whether for private collectors, corporations, museums, commercial galleries or auction houses, B & P provides coverage of any kind.
We assure that every work of art is optimally insured upon request. Therefore, we exclusively work together with selected and professionally competent insurance companies that are familiar with our high safety standards with regard to packaging, transport and storage.
Our insurance partners honour our commitment with particularly attractive terms and conditions, which we will gladly pass on to you – including maximum obligingness and quick, unbureaucratic handling of all insurance issues.
What does Kunsttrans need to know in order to tell me if a shipment is possible and how much it will cost?
In order to provide an estimate we require amount and size, and possibly weight of objects and accurate pick-up and delivery addresses. It is of equal importance that we know the time frame of the pick-up and delivery!
What is direct shipment?
Direct shipment means that your works of art are transported by a truck exclusively reserved for your objects. In addition, couriers may accompany the works of art on board. Depending on the length and distance of the shipment there is also the possibility to park the truck at a secure site of one of our partners overnight. The transport is carried out according to your schedule.
What is additional cargo?
Additional cargo means that your works of art are transported together with others in the same truck. Several loading and unloading are possible. The period of time from pick-up to delivery can be up to 15 working days. The advantage of additional cargo compared to direct shipment is a much lower price.
Can Kunsttrans pack?
Yes, of course. The packaging of works of art is one of our core competences and services. From lightweight packaging to optimized transport crates each option is possible.
An essential part of our logistics services is the perfect packaging, an individual and customized packaging solution for each individual piece of art. Art itself is unique, as well are our solutions of packaging. We are continuously developing and improving solutions for packaging, constantly testing them and thereby we follow the latest technical possibilities.
In our own development & joinery center in Bratislava, we manufacture object-specific packaging systems. Our packers are specialists, and our special packaging solutions for special works of art are based on know-how and years of experience.
We pack according to the requirements of the artwork and the restorers. Our packaging systems range from packing blankets to simple transport packaging solutions with tissue paper or crates up to climate crates and art containers.
Only high-quality and scientifically tested materials are used. The usage of a special rental packing crate system not only reduces the use of natural resources, but simultaneously reduces your exhibition budget.
In addition to custom-made packaging solutions we offer - on a rental basis – the following standard packaging for transport:
Climate painting-crates, climate-slot crates, painting crates, slot crates, object crates, transport frames and cases, classic shipping-cardboard boxes and carry-on suitcases.
