- One of the things that makes the company different is that both owners are actively involved in the operational work, which means that we install, pack, ship, deliver, and drive. The other thing is that both owners come from extensive antique and art backgrounds. My father used to be an antique dealer and a prominent porcelain collector, so there is no one who knows how to pack porcelain better than him.
I started working in the antique market at the age of 15. Since 18, I have been doing different shows such as Miami Beach, JCK Show, jewelry expositions, watch presentations, and other events with expensive antiques, jewels, and artworks that needed extensive packing. That's how I know how to flawlessly pack every single piece so that it gets delivered super safely. This is very important.
Furthermore, some of our other guys are superb carpenters. These are people who come from the wood trade and know how to make crates like nobody else.
At Fine Art Shippers, we have known each other for many years. As you said, we are a small company, and we do position ourselves as a small boutique company. The thing is that we don't want to be huge. Being a small family-owned company that caters to individual projects is our niche. At the same time, there is no project of any magnitude that we cannot do. Sure, we don't take on as many projects at a time as big companies do, but we are also very flexible and have no delays. In other words, we are very customizable, and we like it. A lot of our customers like it too because they like the individual approach and the feeling that they are involved with one of the owners who is going to supervise their projects. It gives them confidence.
