SHUTTLE

PACART offers a network of shuttles across Canada and into the USA. From coast to coast we stop in all major cities with the ability to travel off route into outlying areas.

PACART provides transportation into the USA with regular shuttles to New York City, Chicago, and Seattle. In providing this service, our knowledgeable staff can assist with all customs formalities.

Need to go further?
PACART will work with you to facilitate transportation anywhere your shipment needs to go, with the ability to extend our shuttle range throughout North America.
When it may be more cost-effective, PACART can work in conjunction with one of our carefully selected strategic business partners who are dedicated to the field of fine art shipping and logistics.

Please feel free to request a quote or contact any one of our North American Ground Transportation Team to help you with your shipment.

LOCAL SERVICES

PACART has three locations across Canada: our flagship office in Toronto, our Montreal office, and our newest office in Vancouver. Local transportation is offered daily within these cities and the surrounding areas.

INSTALLATION SERVICES

PACART also offers installation as part of our local services. From single works to an entire collection, we have the experience and technical equipment to complete smaller projects to larger scale placements. Our specially trained and bonded technical staff provide their expertise with wall installations, no matter if it is a simple two-dimensional framed item or large three-dimensional piece. We provide secure solutions, and stairwells are our specialty. Sculpture installations cover every size and shape of the artwork, and our team can assist with the management of indoor and outdoor installations, including those that require specialized equipment such as gantries, cranes, or rigging.

SPECIALIZED TRANSPORTATION

PACART offers charter, dedicated, and exclusive services for shipments that require special attention. Depending on your needs, we can provide vehicles with either single or dual driver, courier service, and security. Within Canada or across the border, we can customize your transport to fit your project needs.

OUR FLEET

Our fleet sets the standard for fine art shipping!

PACART vehicles are custom designed to accommodate fine art and exhibition transportation. Our entire fleet is equipped with air ride suspension, temperature-controlled cargo spaces, satellite tracking with two-way communication, and full track systems to safely secure your cargo. Essential to our service, each vehicle is equipped with a lift gate, for ground level loading and unloading.

PACART offers three types of vehicles, depending on the nature of the shipment. 

LOCAL / CITY TRUCKS are utilized primarily for our local service within Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, in addition to shorter regional and shuttle runs. The lower height and shorter box makes it easier to travel busy city streets, where parking and dock space are often at a premium.

STRAIGHT / 5 TON TRUCKS are a larger version of our local / city trucks, with a few additional features to accommodate long-distance shipping. These highway vehicles are equipped with longer and higher cargo space and are used for some of our cross-border shuttles, as well as dedicated and exclusive shipping. Equipped with a sleeper cab, they can be used for courier-accompanied shipments, and also allow for continuous driving for dual-driver requests.

TRACTOR TRAILERS are the longest trucks in our fleet and travel all over North America. Used regularly for our cross country shuttle between Toronto and Vancouver, the load capacity on these vehicles is much greater. Our tractors include all of the benefits of our 5 ton trucks, including a sleeper cab for couriers and dual-driver requests. Our trailers can accommodate a height of up to 120” through the door. These vehicles can be chartered for dedicated and exclusive shipping, great for both exhibition transport and moving oversized pieces.
