About CV Fine Art Services

TRANSPORTATION

CV Fine Art Services offers fine art shipping throughout the United States. Our shuttle runs the Eastern seaboard bi-monthly and the southern route to Florida during the alternate weeks. The shuttle trucks are air-ride and are staffed with two service representatives/art handlers.

The service representatives responsible for the shuttle runs have experience handling every type of fragile object. They have extensive knowledge of various packing and/or crating methodologies as well as vast experience with art installation or de-installation.

When CV FAS shuttle services do not adequately meet the needs of our clients, we will, with your permission, contract with another specialized fine art shipper to provide service. We have strong relationships with various fine art service companies that have proven to be capable of providing the quality of service that our clients have learned to expect when contracting with CV FAS.

CV Fine Art Services has the capability to provide Exclusive Use and Last On First Off service when requested. Our tractor-trailer and straight trucks have been scheduled for various projects throughout the United States on an Exclusive Use basis.

LOCAL SERVICES

Our experienced art handlers offer museum quality services including packing, crating, installation, and de-installation throughout the Metro Atlanta area. You will find personnel qualifications of the art handlers below; they have over 40 years of combined experience in the museum quality service field.

Our newly designed crate shop contains state of the art equipment. CV Fine Art Services is one of a very few professional craters in Atlanta to have the capacity to provide EU compliant crates for international shipments.

Our crating department discusses specifications and needs with clients whenever possible to produce the design that best suits each individual project. Our experience has included building crates for the return of Ramesses I to Egypt, a crate to ship the masthead from the Andrea Doria to a museum in Milan, and crates to expedite an exhibition of over 100 mixed media pieces by a renowned folk artist to a museum show in Texas.

PERSONNEL

The CV Fine Art Services personnel constitute the most professional team possible and have over forty (40) years of cumulative experience with all aspects of art handling.
