Transportation & Freight

 

The traditional method of freight transportation in the Middle East is open top trucks with leaf spring suspension. Crown bucks this trend with a European-sourced vehicle equipped with air-ride suspension and full air-conditioning. Its additional height combined with a 1.5 tonne tail lift, enables us to lift heavy and complex sculptures. This offers a museum-standard method of transport for your artwork. In addition, we are able to offer all types of air and sea freight to any international destination.

Packing & Crating

 

The perception of packing in the Middle East is mixed. We pride ourselves in our European standard packing. Most of our materials used are sourced from the European market as they are still unavailable in the Middle East. Our dedicated Fine Art crew hail mostly from the Philippines and are all extensively trained in our fine art handling mindset, which sets them apart from alternative service providers in the region. Our in-house crating operation enables us to construct custom made cases to time sensitive deadlines.

Middle East - Storage

 

In the Middle East, temperatures during July and August can exceed 50°C in the shade, with relative humidity ranging widely from 26% (dry) to 92% (very humid) over the course of the year. It is therefore vital that artworks sensitive to such conditions are well protected.

Our facility in Dubai offers a temperature and humidity controlled environment, specifically designed to provide the ideal conditions for works of art. Our unique AirLok™ for vehicles ensures continuity of climate from collection point in the city to its final destination in our facility.

Total Art Services

 

In a new city like Dubai, skilled conservators and restorers are hard to come by. Over the years, Crown Dubai has built up a network of contacts who can facilitate such technicalities behind any artwork. Various restorations have been undertaken in our facility.

In addition, we find ourselves needing to move or install difficult, awkward and heavy sculptures.

Technical Sculpture Installations

 

Construction is Dubai’s number one industry and economic driving force. New public buildings are often adorned with large sculptures, especially commission for the project. Crown is the acknowledged expert in monumental and large sculptural or art work installations in the Dubai area.
