Fine Art

Whether you’re moving an individual piece locally or shipping to a museum overseas with tarmac security and attendants on board, our team consistently provides the needed expertise as your single point of contact to ensure an on-time and smooth delivery.

Since the early 2000’s Mercury has been carefully shipping some of the most highly valued, prestigious artwork in the world. We have shipped everything from Norman Rockwell paintings sent to France for the Caen Memorial for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings to Rembrandt paintings and Galileo’s original telescope.

Guided by our core value of ownership, our expert team provides the same individual attention, high-level monitoring, focus on detail, and follow-through that ensures both a bone marrow sample arrives safely at a testing lab and a precious painting is delivered to a museum in Paris.

Anytime a package is late or cannot be delivered, Mercury contacts me and they will reroute a package if the address was incorrect. I don’t get that from anyone else.
