No matter how you describe the precious items you transport, Atlas understands your absolute necessity for care that is without question. Whether you are responsible for a multi-city tour or a one-time exhibition…an entire collection or a single masterpiece…count on Atlas to usher your shipment with unfailing attention to integrity, safety and security.
We even control the climate around your treasure.
Using precision climate systems, we control temperature within specified tolerances for the optimal well-being of your sensitive items during transit. Super-insulated trailers combined with powerful climate-control units provide unfailing protection, even in extreme environments. Atlas-designed trailers with air-ride suspension, power lift gates and a host of specialized equipment help enable worry-free loading, transport and unloading.
You get specific attention from the best.
Your Atlas fine arts team consists of specifically-assigned van operators, so your shipment is always in the same hands. Our fine arts van operators are hand-picked from among the best performers in our organization. They average 16 years of experience in specialized transportation. Rest assured your Atlas van operators are of the highest professional rank.
There are some things we won’t do…
Our exceptional service to shippers of fine arts and antiquities is proven with a claims ratio of less than one third of one percent — among the lowest in the industry. To keep our performance above reproach, we minimize handling and don’t employ hub-and-spoke systems or distribution centers when transporting fine art shipments. We prefer direct pickup and direct delivery. And, when specified, we are pleased to provide “last-on, first-off” service.
Of course, value-added services are available.
Atlas can help you with complete logistics planning to save you time and expense. Through affiliates in the fine arts community, we also offer consolidation and dispersal; specialized crating, packing, and installation; and nationwide climate-controlled storage. And, of course, courier services are always welcome.
