Trusted Hands, Global Reach
Most art transportation is local; it begins and ends with two art handlers and an air-ride climate control truck. The ICEFAT network insures that as an artwork moves from New York to London to Paris to Dubai, there is an ICEFAT member at each location to assure that the artwork is handled, inspected, documented and transported professionally and in accord with local laws.
Contact your local ICEFAT agent for an estimate to transport your artwork around the corner or around the world.
