Expertly managing your fine art transport for individual works of art or complete art collections throughout the UK and to destinations around the world.

Museum quality transport

Our team knows exactly how to transport your entire art collection or individual artwork to any location around the world. We use only our trusted overseas partners and we will design and designate the most cost effective and efficient method of shipping via land, sea or air for our valued clients.

Tuplin Fine Art will manage the transport and shipping of your valuable artworks keeping you updated every step of the way.

We are flexible in our approach and will arrange direct, dedicated or consolidated shipments according to our client’s priorities.

Shipping art by air freight

We offer transport via air on both passenger and freighter aircraft to destinations around the world. For direct shipments we fly through major hubs such as New York, Los Angeles, Dubai, Shanghai and Seoul.

When required we will arrange for tarmac supervision and witness-loading to make sure that your precious artwork is handled properly at all times and flies as booked.

We can hand-deliver your artwork, using experienced artwork handlers ensuring the safety of the work at all times.

We have the simple aim of getting your precious shipment to where it needs to be on time, securely and with as little time in transit as possible.

Shipping art by road

We have a fleet of specialist high specification art transportation vehicles suitable for the collection and onward movement of all types of fine art, sculpture and antiquities of any shape, weight and size.

All of our trucks have climate control to maintain temperature and humidity even during severe conditions, summer or winter. Their air suspension provides a smooth journey for the most delicate of works and remote track-and-trace and alarm systems are built-in for complete security.

Tuplin Fine Art provide consolidated trucking to destinations throughout Europe and into Switzerland. Our drivers’ technical expertise and experience means that when they reach their destination they can also install the artwork for your convenience.

Shipping art by sea

For larger shipments of whole collections or exhibitions, Full Container Load (dedicated) sea freight can be the most cost effective form of transport. We can manage the entire operation for you from door to door, including the unpacking and installation services at destination.

We use our excellent relationships with our international partners to make sure your shipment is handled smoothly and quickly, however it has been transported.
