Specialist Art Transporters
“Transart has been our art carrier of choice since we opened for business in 1998. Its principal, Matt Foster, is a consummate professional who thrives under pressure and has met any logistical challenge which we’ve placed in his path. The safe transportation of paintings and sculpture requires a delicate blend of energy, organisation and finesse which Matt demonstrates on an almost daily basis in the service of our organisation. I have no hesitation in recommending him to private, commercial and institutional clients.”
- Cameron Menzies, Managing Director & Auctioneer at Menzies Art Brands
Transart operates within Melbourne and regional Victoria servicing many prominent commercial and independent galleries, museums, auction houses, private and corporate collectors as well as artists, photographers, framers and restorers.
Our vehicles are carpeted, contain padded railing and are fully insulated. As well as being exceptionally well-maintained, for security reasons they are unmarked and utilised for art transport purposes only. We use premium grade bubble-wrap, padded blankets, foam dividers and high-strength nylon fasteners to ensure all artworks are absolutely secure during transit.
Whilst artworks are entirely safe to travel unwrapped in our vehicles, upon request we do offer a wrapping service for individual or multiple pieces.
“Matt Foster and I have a shared circumstance that is from a very early age we grew up listening to talk of the art world. Through his learnt respect for works of art and his natural integrity he handles work in his care with the utmost responsibility. He was a success from day one and has earned a reputation as a man who can be totally depended upon. It is no surprise to me that Transart was born and that Matt would become the most capable and reliable transporter of art in Victoria. Most importantly Matt knows the rules, no giving out any information, no gossip. When a booking is made he promptly turns up or informs you of any delay. All of our dealings with Transart since 1998 have left us very confident that a work in Matt’s hands is a work safely delivered.”
