FR Review:
TK Art Services is one of a select group of companies in South Florida trusted by top galleries and prestigious collectors to handle their art work. Founded by current president Tyler Townsend in 1995, the firm has since grown into a trusted resource for a host of services including installation, de-installation, museum-quality packing, local moves and long-distance shipping. Townsend and Co. are also equipped to handle more unorthodox projects; TK keeps a certified rigging expert on staff for large pieces, and the firm offers a hurricane threat program, by which clients can sign up to have their collection immediately packed and stored in the company's weather-safe warehouse if a serious hurricane warning is issued. TK generally specializes in projects involving modern and contemporary art, but it has handled a fair volume of antiques over the years, and sources say the firm is capable of dealing with objects both new and old. Indeed, TK's CV indicates an impressive range of projects, everything from rigging and shipping monumental iron sculptures to hanging 96 individual butterflies in an 80-foot mall atrium.

Among the firm's assets are a staff of twelve (all individually trained by Townsend), a small fleet of trucks, and the aforementioned warehouse, which features 5,800 square feet of climate-controlled storage and round-the-clock security. Sources are quick to praise the team at TK, listing qualities such as timeliness, expertise, and a "friendly, professional attitude that sets them apart from a generic moving and handling company." They also point out that the staff will often go out of its way to advise clients on the placement of paintings, pointing out risks (like a watercolor near a window, or a painting near a hot lamp) and collaborating on design elements if need be. TK's prices are commensurate with the high level of service offered, which may make this firm out of reach for those with inexpensive or small collections, though trusted sources praise the firm for treating small projects with care.

Representative Client Comments:
"I've recommended this firm to literally dozens of people over the years, and they've all had great experiences." "Most people in the Florida art world have TK on their short list." "They can do anything you want (in fact, they've probably already done it!)" "Great expertise and a very friendly staff. And using them doesn't break the bank. I simply can't think of a single negative thing to say."
