Art Shippers

Art Fairs and Protecting Art in Transit

Underwriting the transportation of fine art can be tricky. Using an experienced, trusted agent is important to protect yourself from the pitfalls.

 

Artists, Art Dealers, Collectors and Institutions use art transport services regularly, but insurance in particular, is a gray area in which most losses occur. Shippers charge high rates with high deductibles and with hidden exclusions. Pay close attention to the bill of lading and understanding the fine print. The standard form limits the exposure of a claim on the art to weight, not value. Our policies are written either as a schedule or market value less a percentage. Either way your art will be protected while in transport, in storage and while exhibited.

Whether buying or selling at Art Fairs be sure that your work or investment has the maximum coverage with minimal headaches by using the Trusted One Stop Art Insurance for the Art Community since 1949, Bernard Fleischer & Sons Inc. www.artinsurancenow.com or call 800-921-1008 Ask for William Fleischer, CIC.  so he can help you with all your Art Insurance requirements.
