Proper wrapping, packing and crating is the first line of defense for a work of art. SRI creates tailored packing solutions for works of art and their unique circumstances.

A significant benefit to working with SRI is our in-house crate shop, which ensures that works of art remain in our knowledgeable, secure, climate controlled care throughout the crating process.  We offer a full suite of custom crating services from museum crates to travel frames.  All of our closed crates are suitable for multiple shipments and long-term storage.
