Logistics made simple

ArtRunners is an online comparison and contracting service striving to be the new benchmark in specialized art logistics services such as crating, packing, transport and installation, anywhere in the world. It is our obsession to give other art lovers, collectors and art professionals a simple and efficient solution, enabling them to choose from a diversity of service providers and make informed decisions. We tackle the complexity of art logistics through our proprietary technology so our users can save time.

… so you can focus on your passion

User reviews

Quotations from our service providers come with user reviews and service provider background information, so our users can make informed choices that go beyond mere pricing.

Trust is Good. Experience is Better.

Proprietary vetting methodology

Honesty and integrity are core values for us. This means we screen every single shipper thoroughly and independently to identify their value and contribution to our network. Some may specialize in a specific medium or geographic area, others may be able to handle an especially complex artwork or are especially experienced with handling the shipping of large single collections.

We live logistics so you don’t have to

“With a network of 12 galleries and countless art fairs to service, ArtRunners will simplify our complex logistics, enable our global expansion, reduce our costs and save us precious time. Who would say no to that?

Gilles Dyan,

“Despite the vast bandwidth of our services and long term experience we sometimes meet requests that need a different range of services and skills. Our current solution is to give these clients the best advice possible – even if it means recommending a competitor. In a way this is the idea behind ArtRunners – so we are confident that market transparency will also promote and publicize our own abilities and qualities. In the end we can’t but win.”

Klaus Hillmann,
Director at TANDEM

“We support ArtRunners as we have a first hand understanding of how lacking the art world is of such a platform.
