Loomis Artcare will deliver professional packaging specifically designed for your artifact based on its size and requirements, and at a competitive price.

Drawing on our expensive experience, we can offer customers a broad range of packaging options:

  • Fast art boxes
  • Packaging boards

We also deliver specialized protective packaging for all climate zones. Our packaging complies with strict conservation and environmental regulations. We use quality packaging materials such as wood, cardboard, acid-free tissue paper, Tyvek, foam material, rubber seals, Styropor, Sagex, Polylam and Ethafoam. Our customized crates incorporate several layers of insulation and protective materials, which protect the artwork against temperature fluctuations, shocks and external influences.

If desired, we can tailor an insurance concept to your needs. This allows you to rest easy knowing that you are well protected, even if – despite proper handling – damage occurs.

You also profit from an attractive discount on bulk consignments. Warehousing is based on a written storage agreement, information about content, KWC, a list of values and a credit check.
