Since 1978, Terry Dowd, Inc. has been handling fine art, artifacts, and antiques; objects that are high in value, fragile and irreplaceable. TDI, Inc., is perhaps best known among museums for its superior packing and crating services and its innovative adaptation of commercially available materials that meet conservation standards. Our crating methods have been informed by the research of the Canadian Conservation Institute, and in turn our standards have served as a guide for many institutions.
Our clients, including many of the most prestigious museums, private collectors and corporations in the world, regularly contract us for the collection, crating, storage and transport of individual loans or entire exhibits.
TDI maintains full service facilities in both Chicago and Denver, that offer fully climate controlled storage with state of the art security, a fleet of air-ride, climate controlled vehicles and a project management staff that formulates packing and installation decisions based on years of experience. Whether it’s installing a simple flatwork, rigging an over-sized sculpture into a residence or evacuating an entire collection from a disaster type situation, Terry Dowd, Inc. has the resources to accommodate.
We strive to guarantee a perfect transfer, for one piece of art, or an entire collection.
