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.
Your museum, gallery, or art collection is carefully managed by curators and other highly skilled professionals. Who on your team should be spending their time understanding how to safely ship one-of-a-kind artwork, carefully create shipping paperwork, track shipments until final delivery, and be sure your artwork is insured before it ships?
Let Mercury’s shipping experts join your team, whether once a month or several times a day.
Your international shipping is complicated and you deserve individual attention and guidance to make this go as smoothly as possible. We help prepare the international documentation such as AES filings and provide advice around insurance.
Often your shipments need climate-controlled vehicles, tarmac security or attendants on board the flight and our team arranges this on your behalf.
Mercury specializes in the shipping of fine art domestically. Whether your shipment goes on a climate-controlled truck with real-time GPS tracking or on a flight with tarmac security and attendants on board, our team constantly monitors your shipments so you don't have to.

Expertise in art shipping
Mercury has helped us save labor costs and drive operational efficiencies as we scale our at-home COVID testing business.
Incredible customer service and highly responsive. I have never had a better team helping to ensure our critical materials make it exactly where we need them, internationally, in such a timely manner.
Mercury saves us money and is helpful in getting insight when major couriers' own tracking information does not provide answers. We also love our pick-up handler!
Arranging the shipment was easy and it was great to talk to the same people who understood my shipping requirements. The shipment was quickly delivered to Denmark and arrived frozen.
Prompt service and fair pricing.
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.
Incredible customer service - always going above and beyond to help my team succeed. We really appreciate your partnership in all things shipping!
