Bespoke on-site stretching

Our Bespoke Service

Bird & Davis Limited offers a bespoke service where will will attend at your property and remove and re-stretch any piece of artwork on to either your existing frame or a brand new stretcher frame.

We have carried out some of the most specialist work for private individuals, hotels, galleries, art movers, and universities.

We hand make bespoke wooden crates so that your artwork can be transported without damage either across the country or around the world.

Your stretched art work is suspended within the crate using our specialist system to ensure no damage will come to your artwork. once transported to its new destination, we will unpack the artwork, if required and re-stretch it on site.

Alternatively, if your artwork is “over-sized” we can arrange for the art to be removed from its existing frame, rolled and then crated to its new destination. Again, the rolled artwork is suspended within a handmade wooden crate to ensure safety and quality at all times.
