How to move antiques from 7 countries for an exhibition and then move it back.

For the South East Asia Buddhist Festival, the challenge for Writer Relocations was to move precious artifacts and antiques from 7 countries into India

The ensemble was priceless. Many of the items were fragile and demanded the utmost care and attention while packing, transporting, unpacking, and re-assembling at the exhibition.

Writer Relocations carried out this end-to-end art and antique shifting with aplomb. The moves were spread across 7 countries - India, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Hong Kong, and China.

What this art shift entailed

  • manage pre-shipment documentation
  • procure import licenses
  • process documents with customs
  • assess duties
  • organise inspection by customs and clearance
  • store the precious articles at our warehouse
  • install the antiques at the site

The important compliance we had to agree was to re-export each of the antiques back to where it originated.

With 63 years of experience in moving art and antiques, Writer Relocations succeeded in pulling of the move with flair.

"Writer Relocations has been affiliated with the Piramal Art Foundation and has never failed to deliver their promise.

Their meticulous and highly professional services enabled us to embark upon an ambitious project, which has just being concluded. Writer Relocations were our packaging and transportation company for an exhibition Pages of a Mind, Raja Rajiv Varma: Life and Expressions. This exhibition involved collection and delivery of highly valuable works of art. The entire procedure was carried out to our great satisfaction and we hope to continue the relationship that has been established."
