SARASOTA, Fla., Jan 10, 2024 -- Navis Pack & Ship, a nationally recognized shipping company, has experienced a significant surge in demand for their specialty packing and shipping services from art galleries, auction houses, and renowned sculptors in and around Sarasota, Fort Myers, Naples, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach.

Florida has long been known as a top destination for beach lovers, with its picturesque coastlines and warm weather. However, if you thought that the Sunshine State was only for sun-seeking tourists, think again. Florida is also home to a thriving art scene, with museums, galleries, and districts that showcase a diverse range of artistic expressions.

"We are thrilled to see an increase in demand for specialty shipping services from the art community in Florida,” said Andy Ahrens, owner of Navis Pack & Ship of Sarasota & South Florida. “Our team takes great pride in handling artwork, antiques, sculptures, and valuable items with the utmost care, ensuring safe delivery to their destination. We recognize the significance of these precious items to our esteemed clients, and our unwavering commitment lies in delivering the finest shipping experience." 

From the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach to the Duncan McClellan Gallery in St. Petersburg and the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, the Sunshine State has a wealth of cultural institutions that cater to all ages and interests. But it's not just these places in Florida that have a vibrant art scene. Flourishing cultural areas like the Naples Art District in Southwest Florida and the Art and Design District in West Palm Beach are also attracting an influx of art enthusiasts, collectors, and tourists for their unique galleries, studios, and events. These areas provide a platform for local artists to showcase their work and attract visitors from all over the world.

One of the premier fine art auction houses and art galleries that Navis Pack & Ship proudly works with is Helmuth Stone Gallery. Located in the heart of Sarasota, Helmuth Stone Gallery is a renowned establishment that showcases a collection of exquisite fine art pieces. From stunning paintings to intricate sculptures, the Helmuth Stone Gallery is a haven for art lovers and collectors seeking to immerse themselves in the beauty of various artistic styles. 

“We are truly grateful to collaborate with expert shipping providers in South Florida like Navis Pack & Ship, who ensure a seamless and reliable shipping process for our customers, both nationally and worldwide,” said Brandon Stone, co-owner of Helmuth Stone Gallery.

Navis Pack & Ship has established itself as the leading provider of reliable and secure transportation for valuable artwork, sculptures, antiques, and fragile items. With their expertise in handling large, bulky, and high-value items, the company has become the go-to choice for domestic and international shipping of fine art, antiques, furniture, and sculptures.

Ahrens and his team at Navis recently completed a remarkable delivery of large Batman sculptures by renowned artist Bo Causey to a collector in Spain. “The challenge was to safely transport these life-sized and delicate sculptures across the Atlantic Ocean,” said Causey. This is where Navis Pack & Ship stepped in, utilizing their specialized packing techniques to ensure the sculptures arrived at their destination in perfect condition.

"We are honored to have been chosen by Bo Causey to transport his amazing lifelike Batman sculptures to a collector in Spain. Our team takes great pride in handling and shipping delicate and valuable items, and this international air freight delivery is a testament to our expertise and commitment to customer satisfaction," stated Ahrens.
