Fine Art Packing

Your artworks will be packed exclusively by TFA London technicians. Our knowledgeable and skilled team are all passionate about what we do and how well we do it.

Your artwork, handled only by experts

We will take time to understand your exact requirements, ensuring your goods are packed correctly for safe and secure transit from door to door. Your shipment can be packed on-site at a gallery, exhibition or private residence, or at one of our warehouses in London or Surrey.

If required, for instance when working at an exhibition alongside other trades, or working at height or with specialist lifting equipment, we can carry out risk assessments and provide method statements to ensure your health and safety responsibilities are met at the highest levels.

Prior to packing your artworks into crates, our teams will soft pack your items before carefully loading them into their bespoke container. We do this using various high-quality materials specific to the item being packed, including Tyvek, tissue paper, Glassine, polythene, blue edging and a range of foams. We pick the best materials for each individual item.
