Here at Nationwide Courier Service, we provide the much-needed service of art couriering for galleries and artists in Nottingham and throughout the East Midlands. Not only do we have the best drivers but our vehicles have the right insurance to ensure that your masterpiece, however big, small or delicate gets from A to B in perfect condition.

Being the only courier service in the East Midlands that specialises in art transportation has its advantages. For you, the artist or gallery curator it means you no longer have to rely on expensive couriers who are usually based in London. Our drivers are experienced in handling some of the most obscure and fragile pieces of art, so your valuable work is in good hands!

We work closely with Nottingham Trent University and we were responsible for the safe transportation and delivery of nearly all the artwork for their recent exhibitions celebrating 170 years of art and design at the university.

As you can imagine, the past 170 years at NTU have generated quite a few paintings, sculptures and installations so for the weeks leading up to the exhibitions we were regulars at the Bonington Gallery in Nottingham city centre. We covered all aspects of their art transportation, from local pick-ups to long distance and multi-faceted deliveries and more often than not, very fragile and highly valuable artworks and artefacts.

Geoff Litherland, the manager of Bonington Gallery, said: “Nationwide Courier Service have provided us with an excellent service over the past year. Their prompt and courteous driver treat the transportation of valuable artworks as if their lives depended on them!”

Steven is one of those drivers! He is very proud to be the only courier not to cause damage to a particularly delicate piece of work by Sarah Turner. Sarah Turner created a large eco-friendly piece made up of recycled bottles which has been exhibited all over the country. Unfortunately, she was dissatisfied with the courier service she was getting elsewhere because she would have to go along to each gallery to repair the damage caused to her sculpture during transportation.

“I was nervous about taking this piece because I was determined to be the first driver that hadn’t broken this piece of art. I’ve had some weird stuff in the back of my van over the years so I know how to handle peculiar pieces of artwork. Sarah turner was really impressed and I think a little bit shocked when, for the first time ever, her masterpiece arrived in one piece.” Sarah Turner only uses us now to transport her collection.

We are highly recommended by the Bonington Gallery and leading artists in the East Midlands and further afield. Think about us for the next time you have a piece of art you need to get from Paris to the Peak District, because Nationwide Courier Service is on hand.
