Crates and Shipping


We offer custom crate building for local, national, and international shipping. On-site and on-demand soft packing services are available for purposes ranging from local storage to packaging suitable for long term storage or fine art shipping. 

From slat-crating a single painting for a domestic move, to constructing multi-venue traveling exhibition crates for international travel, we cater to your specific shipping and handling requirements with the safety of your objects as our top priority.    

All our crates are custom built to precisely fit your objects. Constructed entirely of high quality plywood, our crates are clearly stenciled with handling and orientation instructions. We utilize archival materials where needed and offer a range of custom options.    


From soft wrapping for shuttle transport, to preparing your collection for a cross-country move, Strand Fine Art Services understands the unique requirements for handling fine art and antiques. We offer on-site consultation to determine the best packing and crating options, and we provide on-site packing and soft-wrapping using the latest archival material to ensure the safe and stable transport of your pieces.

Strand Fine Art Services cares about our environment. We recycle our wood and packing scraps, and use reusable and recycled wrapping and packing products whenever possible.
