Here at ITRANSPORT4U, we pride ourselves on superior customer service. Our business is client-based. Pickup and delivery schedules are built to meet the needs of our clients. We will go where you want, when you want with proper planning. We have pricing structures for all type shipments, ie retail sales, gallery transfers, exhibitions, art fairs and “return to artists” type shipments. We provide van/shipment tracking on our website. We are a soft-pack company, which is much simpler, and more cost-effective than crating! In addition to transportation, we also offer packing and installation services. We accept a wide variety of payment methods. We are also active on social media, seeking meaningful communication with those in the art world.
Bob and Jodie Sorrentino opened three Mailboxes Etc locations some 20 plus years ago here in the Coachella Valley. Bob discovered a niche in the industry - fine art transportation. Galleries and artists in the area had been reaching out to him with specific transportation needs that he felt he could accommodate. That’s when he decided that he could do it better than the national carriers, and ITRANSPORT4U was born. We’ve been catering to artists, galleries, museums & private collectors across the entire continental U.S. ever sense. We sincerely believe that fine art must be handled with care, as opposed to just being thrown into the back of a box truck and neglected. ITRANSPORT4U genuinely cares about each and every piece of art that we transport - we care if it arrives safely and in a timely manner - it matters to us. Our satisfied clients are the foundation of our business and we are dedicated to providing them with impeccable customer service and transportation!
