“I work in the Museum & Exhibition Department, preparing estimates, sending customs instructions and arranging local and international shipments of artworks by road and air. We also communicate a lot with clients, case makers, government bodies and overseas agents.
The most challenging project I have been involved with was installing a large sculpture in the courtyard of a major gallery in London. The work itself was over 6 meters high, 3 meters wide, weighed 5 tons and was constructed from mirror-polished stainless steel. The operation was carried out in the middle of the night and all sorts of technical equipment was needed. With lots of planning and checks beforehand, it all went like clockwork. It was from there that I knew that the de-install 3 months later would all go well.
When it comes to the logistics of Art Shipping, Martinspeed is a very diverse company. Because we provide services for Galleries, Museums and Private Clients and Art Fairs, I would think we have most if not all areas covered. Our continual expansion of staff, vehicles and resources show that more and more new clients are coming to us, while we are still able to maintain a high level of service to our existing clients.”
