Helping the Tate Modern with shipping containers

Whilst shipping containers can be great for the storage of fine art and other high value items, we were proud to deliver our very first shipping containers to the Tate modern gallery in central London last Friday

Whilst many might be going for the art inside, we took a great deal of satisfaction taking a good look at these 2 beauties sat outside.Tate art shipping containers

We would add for anyone thinking to store art and very high value items, we’d recommend an insulated or in some cases refrigerated container that can keep goods at a regulated ambient temperate and also control humidity. This is on top of being very secure, very reasonably priced and anonymous. Of course please contact us if you wanted to try something like this.

Whilst we think these are more likely to contain building materials that being used to store fine art items or even become part of an instillation, we are seeing more and more examples of shipping containers in art, here’s a few examples we have come across recently
