FR Review:
Gander and White is a pedigreed fine art shipping and handling firm that provides its clients with white glove service (quite frequently, actual white gloves are used) at five international locations. Founded in 1933, the firm has earned a considerable reputation over the course of its history, handling art for some of the most prestigious galleries and museums in the world. Sources say that the key to Gander and White's longevity and success is its staff of well-rounded experts, noting that its employees are just as likely to know the proper method for framing a watercolor as they are to understand international shipping laws and currency conversions. High-maintenance shipping is the firm's meat and potatoes; the firm will handle all aspects of the move, from packing to temperature-controlled storage to final installation, all protected by a large umbrella of insurance. More recently, the firm has been adding additional services, which include art handling training courses and interior design services.

Though the Palm Beach office is comparatively small (five or six employees, roughly half the size of the New York home base), local sources assert that the firm, with its international resources, is nevertheless one of the safest bets for large, complicated projects. Gander and White's Florida clientele includes a number of top decorators, who lavish praise on the courteous, careful staff and recommend the company to their clients as "the pinnacle of service." Of course, that level of service can be expensive, and it would be hard to find a client who thinks of Gander and White's prices as a bargain. It is equally difficult, however, to find a client who feels the expense was not justified. For many, Gander and White is simply the only choice.

Representative Client Comments:
"A favorite firm for museums, galleries and institutions." "Their estimate came in miles above other companies, but you get what you pay for." "The planning and execution were perfect. No stone was left unturned. They're one of the most professional companies I've ever worked with, of any kind."
