Security for Priceless Objects
We operate a safe, top-of-the-range art storage facility in the heart of Berlin (in accordance with VDS security directives) with over 1500 m² of storage space for your art. Your art is recorded and catalogued in our digital system and issued with a bar code. Whether pictures, light boxes, installations or large sculptures, everything has its place in our store. All our dealings are subject to the utmost discretion.
With its two stores in the centre of Berlin (one on the Malzfabrik site), ARTSECO is well-placed at the heart of Berlin’s art scene. We chose this location to enable spontaneous customer visits. In addition to your convenience and peace of mind, it helps us to get to know you and your needs, thereby permitting us to provide the best possible service.
Our storage facilities are maintained at an average temperature of 18 – 20 °C in every season.
Security and Discretion
Satisfying the highest of insurance standards, we provide our customers not only with security, but the assurance of our complete discretion.
Different Storage Areas
We provide three different storage options:
- An open berth, a defined shelf which you can rent and manage use yourself.
- Picture shelves provide the most effective storage for large, flat works of art stored in padding.
- Free spaces provide the best solution for large sculptures and crates.
Date and Location
Our Bar Code System (BCS) documents the arrival of the art in our storage facility. After issuing a bar code, we can find out the location, state and movement history of any piece of art at any given time.
We are happy to provide a monthly inventory of all the objects which you have stored with us. You can see everything at a glance and remain up-to-date.
The BCS makes it easy to control the location of your art and provides an overview costs.
