We understand that moves such as these are links in a chain that hopefully extends several generations.

Experts in the art of moving art

Moving art takes more than dollies, trucks, crates and gloves. It takes a special expertise that few can claim. At A-1 First Class, our art movers have proven their expertise time and again in the relocation of fine art. Whether your concern is a single exhibition in New York City or a tour that spans multiple cities, we answer with the surety, safety, and care you demand.

Climate control for moving paintings and sensitive artifacts

Using trailers equipped with climate controls, we keep temperature levels within tolerances, important for moving paintings and other sensitive items. Super-insulated trailers ensure protection, even in extreme environments. Onboard sensors monitor conditions inside the trailer and keep a verifiable computer record.

Our Atlas Van Lines-designed trailers come with air-ride suspension to smooth out the ride. Power lift gates and specialized handling equipment provide for worry-free loading and unloading. In short, your A-1 First Class art movers maintain a fully equipped resource for moving art.

People who know what it takes

The moving team we assign to you is dedicated to your shipment from origin to destination; responsibility doesn’t change hands. Plus, the van operators we employ for moving art are among the best in any organization. Be assured the people entrusted to transport your artwork bring the professionalism you expect.

To keep our performance irreproachable, we never employ hub-and-spoke systems or distribution centers when moving art. You get direct pickup and direct delivery. If you request, we can provide “last-on, first-off” service. Through our affiliates in the fine arts community, we also offer consolidation and dispersal; specialized crating, packing, and installation; and climate-controlled storage wherever you may need.
