Transport of Works of Art: the FERCAM Fine Art sector

Transferring works of art is an extremely delicate and complex task. For this reason, a great deal of experience, professional ethics and passion for our sector are essential.

Specialised domestic and international transport and storage service for works of art

The cultural and human value of the Artistic Heritage we deal with is often far greater than its commercial value. We offer our customers an attentive and specialised service in Italy and abroad, which is the result of a solid combination of years of experience and innovative techniques. FERCAM's Fine Art service is customised according to the needs of our clients, whether they are museums, galleries, auction houses, artists or private collectors. The service includes the option of an All-Risks guarantee on transport and handling, based on the value of the works of art transported.

The transport of works of art, historically offered by Gondrand, is now managed by FERCAM. However, the care for the works of art and the quality of the service remain the same.

Trasporto opere d'arte FERCAM

What do we offer?

High-quality packaging
Custom-designed packaging for each work of art
Specialised carpentry for high-quality packaging.
Each work of art is a unique item, requiring specific care and attention. That is why, within our specialised carpentry, we produce packaging tailored to the works of art. Special packaging, designed and built ad hoc, air-conditioned and fireproof to ensure safe transport. The packaging operation is in fact essential to preserve the special value of unique works by also controlling temperature and humidity.

On request, we can prepare custom-made travel frames: air-conditioned and water-repellent fireproof boxes for every type and size of work of art.

Technical characteristics of crates and packaging

The FERCAM boxes are made of multilayer poplar wood recommended by the American Alliance of Museums for low formaldehyde emissions in accordance with EN 1084. Multilayer wood, unlike solid wood, offers a higher mechanical resistance of the product, due to the arrangement of the layers with crossed fibres. It also does not require fumigation for non-EU air shipments.
The boxes are made to measure in our carpentry and according to customer instructions, by master craftsmen experienced in works of art.
Warehouses, vaults and security
Warehouses and dedicated vehicles for the safety of works of art
We guarantee the highest security measures
FERCAM warehouses for storing works of art are equipped with shelves, fixed boxes and vaults. All the warehouses are equipped with the most sophisticated security systems, such as fire barriers and intrusion alarms connected to a security service. All this, enclosed in a private space, is insured and walled. The protection and management of the secret life of Works of Art for FERCAM is a story that began as early as the beginning of last century, which continues to tirelessly be told, with care and passion, ensuring the highest level of services in the Fine Art sector.
  • FERCAM has innovative equipment to ensure the safe transport of your works of art.
  • We have airconditioned cars, vans and trucks of different sizes and capacities, cranes, isothermal boxes, side bars to stop loads, ratchet belts to anchor the boxes, air conditioners, shores lifts, air suspensions and satellite anti-theft devices.
Design, consultancy and special services for works of art
We offer a complete service, from consulting to positioning. To complete FERCAM's Fine Art service, we provide architectural consultancy at the design stage, as well as the operations of hanging, positioning and installation of the works within walled facilities, with showcase tessellation and the supply of supports for the positioning and enhancement of the works.
