Moving valuables and works of art

Moving valuables and works of art is a specialist task

Moving a work of art is always a delicate operation – the object in question can have high financial value. It therefore needs to be protected against any damage and be transported in a secure way. Furthermore, works of art are often very fragile because of their age or simply because of the materials they are made of. Particular care therefore needs to be taken: the service delivered needs to be appropriate for these challenges. This is why only specialists should be entrusted with moving works of art and objects of value.

Moving a work of art or a valuable object – a bespoke service

A work of art is often unique. Moving it needs to be as well. The preparation phase is therefore essential if the operation is to be completed successfully. A technical inspection is often vital so as to get the measure of the object to be moved (its dimensions, weight, centre of gravity, materials, areas of fragility, how it can be got hold of, etc.), determine the best route for transporting it based on how the initial and destination sites are set up (stair corridors, lifts, ceiling heights, etc.), determine how many people are needed, look into insurance issues and provide all the accessories, equipment and vehicles needed for the various phases of the operation.

PREPARATION, DISASSEMBLY (IF APPLICABLE), PROTECTION

Our teams work with finesse and precision. They use special packaging, appropriate protection and, if necessary, custom-made reinforcements to ensure that the items carried do not suffer any damage.

HANDLING

With its various logistics resources and its expertise in various handling techniques (using cranes, lifting, strap-carrying, passing items through windows, etc.), DMAX is able to handle any situation it encounters.

STOWING AND TRANSPORT

DMAX has a fleet of vehicles of all sizes (from 2 to 105 m3), all fitted with all the equipment required to guarantee the integrity of the items transported.
