Handling art, museum objects and other unique objects requires something special. Not only is the object unique and therefore irreplaceable, it may also have special requirements.
Wide range of services
MTAB has long experience of handling many different types of art. We offer many different types of art handling services. In addition to worldwide transportation, our specially designed art storage facilities and our own packing technology department, we also offer conservator services, an exhibition service and services for project management and customs clearance. We look forward to helping you with your works of art!
Our art handling services
When works of art are to be transported, naturally there is a need for specially adapted vehicles with constant climate and temperature control. Our fleet also includes vehicles with extra high cargo area and vehicles with double courier seats, security systems and extra long tail lift to enable transportation of particularly heavy and/or large objects.
Handling art involves much more than basic storage. We meet all climate, security and temperature requirements, and we can also offer many other services.
By offering conservator services, MTAB can provide additional support and security to customers with sensitive and valuable items. We can e.g. offer advice on how your item should be packed, handled or installed. We can also assist with condition reports and sewing of works before lending and exhibitions as well as during installation and project management.
Producing an exhibition involves a lot of planning. Our employees’ long experience of handling, and assembling, art and museum objects means a great understanding of the special needs that exist in the exhibition sector.
Hanging and installing works of art requires accuracy, precision and knowledge. MTAB’s staff have experience of hanging works of art individually and at many exhibitions, and you can rest assured that the work will be performed with the highest quality when you hire MTAB.
We have our own packing technology department where we produce special packaging for all types of objects. Our staff have long experience of transporting works of art and museum objects, and they build different types of crates and transport frames on a daily basis.

Other services we offer
When you need to move sensitive and valuable objects, you can rest assured that MTAB is the right partner for the job. For us, transportation is not simply a matter of moving an item from A to B; the key is HOW the transportation is performed.
Storage and Warehousing
We store particularly sensitive objects in climate-controlled and temperature-controlled facilities with extra high security. Although the physical facilities provide the basic conditions for good storage, we know that it is the handling process that makes the greatest difference. We have storage facilities in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, Copenhagen, Horsens, Oslo and Helsinki.
With more than 50 years of experience in the field of logistics for sensitive and valuable objects, MTAB has built up a solid knowledge bank with regard to various challenges and solutions. By utilising MTAB’s long experience, you create conditions for accessing the skills and knowledge you need, when you need them.
We produce all types of packaging and crates for the transportation and storage of works of art, as well as display stands and other exhibition materials.
A logistics partner all the way
We plan, structure, produce packaging materials and manage logistics flows. We perform function testing and configure and pack items for safe transportation.
With specially designed vehicles and qualified personnel, we transport sensitive goods throughout the Nordic region and the rest of the world.
We ensure that your objects arrive safely and ready for use, with post-transport services such as unpacking, installation and positioning. We also offer removal and recycling of packaging materials.
