Crating & Packing

Lawrence Fine Arts is known worldwide for our crating and packing experience and expertise.

LFA's in-house crating staff evaluates every art object, considering size, weight, sensitivity, and conditions to which it will be exposed. A customized crate is then designed to ensure the safe travel of each valued piece. Since our research and training is on-going, the crating and packing methods and materials we use are the most current, appropriate and of the highest quality.

We provide a full range of museum standard crating and packing services, including:

  • On-site wrapping and packing
  • One-way crates
  • Round-trip crates
  • Travel frames
  • Multiple-use traveling exhibition crates

One-Way Crate
