TRANSPORT & SHIPPING

With a fleet of 5 trucks and van, there is no job too big that we cannot transport. Our fleet are of the highest art spec. They are all climate controlled, GPS tracked, have air suspension and alarmed for the maximum safety of your pieces.

All drivers have full licences and carry out routine checks every day to make sure every van/truck is safe and road-worthy. When in transit you can choose to also have your pieces wrapped in softcloth wrapping or bubble-wrap. Every item is insured from nail to nail for the utmost safety.

For all customs requirement on international shipments we work with Liam in WPD.

If you have a query regarding an international shipment please do not hesitate to contact us with the details and we will work out the best road ahead for your shipment.

CRATING

Our crates are custom-built here at Irish Art Services and are unique to your requirements. All crates are built for minimum amount of movement of the item, ensuring that they are safe and secure.

On request our crates can be insulated, this may be more suitable for long haul, international journeys. All crates are based on the museum- standard crate to ensure they are of the highest quality.

INSTALLATION

For installation, our team of 6 professionally trained art handlers are more than qualified to do the job. We have partnered with the top health and safety practitioners in the country to ensure our technicians are working in the safest possible manner.

Through this we can also provide risk assessments and safety statements for any concerned clients.
We are also equipped with the required qualifications for completing high- installs, our techs have carried out the SOLAS “Working with Heights” course which allows them to work with scaffolding, ladders and ‘cherry picker’ lift equipment. We also carry equipment which can allow for more secure installs, such as ryman fixings and various other tools.

STORAGE

With climate- controlled stores in both Munster and in Dublin we can accomodate for over 8,000 square feet of storage. Our storage is monitored by security.

It is ideal for anyone carrying out renovations, or perhaps storing pieces which may not be needed for quite a while. We can cater for all needs, items big or small, for long term or short term.
