Works of Art

With Affiliated, you can recognize the master's touch!

Once sedentary, works of art now travel more than ever. The works of the great masters become more accessible to the delight of the layman and connoisseur alike thanks to Affiliated and its network of international forwarding agents. From the most delicate work to large-scale exhibitions, works of art can benefit from Affiliated's specialized services. Whether your destination is a neighbouring museum or a distant land, Affiliated has extensive experience which can assist you through the whole project.

A display of artistic discipline

Affiliated pays tribute to artists through competence, experience and innovation. With respect for a tradition that is constantly evolving, each individual piece is stored, packed and handled in accordance with the highest quality standards of the artistic and museum communities. Few companies can lay claim to the superior quality of services offered by Affiliated. Our expertise, acquired in collaboration with Montreal's largest museums for over 15 years, is now at your service. We have developed a global logistics network capable of effectively coordinating the movement of merchandise and information at the service of the arts.


Museums, large and small, as well as art galleries and private artists trust us, not only for our services as Customs Brokers and International Freight Forwarders, but also for the logistics involved in door-to-door transport:

  • Price search
  • In-house evaluation
  • Manufacture of containers and packing material
  • Pick-up and delivery by specialized truck (air ride suspension, hydraulic tailgate service and temperature controlled)
  • Supervision, loading and unloading of containers and aircraft pallets
  • Escort of the courier who accompanies the cargo
  • Reservation of plane tickets and hotel accommodations
  • Affiliated also takes care of all customs procedures required for import and export, to enable our clients to benefit from duty exemptions applicable to antique, contemporary and "mixed media" works.

A specialized network

The swift forwarding of works of great value from point A to point B requires very rigorous coordination: that is why we have set up special agreements with customs and airport authorities. Furthermore, Affiliated maintains privileged relations with security agencies. We can forward your packages anywhere in the world, on land, sea and air, thanks to our network of specialized agents. We offer services of an exceptional quality to win over our clients' trust.

We make sure that all of our projects are well thought out and executed by a highly motivated team, capable of anticipating and avoiding potential problems. The knowledge and application of these principles have allowed us to acquire the master's touch and to build an enviable reputation in the process.
