Fine Art Storage

Helutrans provides a combined 300,000 sqft of art storage facilities across our stations.

All our facilities adhere to high standards of fine art storage with the following features:

  • Climate controlled environment
  • 24-hour security monitoring
  • Video surveillance
  • Fire detection and suppression system

Our storage facilities are managed by registrar teams who ensure movement and inventories are constantly updated.

In addition, our Singapore facilities are under bonded status, where tax is suspended as long as artworks are stored within the premises approved by Singapore Customs.

Viewing Rooms

Private viewing rooms are available at each of our facilities.

We can assist with logistical and technical arrangements for setting up private views according to clients’ needs, including providing short-term storage and onward transfer for artworks under consideration and/or in transit.

Our viewing rooms are ideal for trade clients who do not have a brick-and-mortar presence and wish to transact in a private gallery setting within our storage premises. Trade clients can store their inventory with us and arrange private views for potential clients at their convenience or even remotely, managed by our professional art handlers.

ArtSpace @ Singapore

Artspace@Helutrans is housed in a bustling warehouse that serves the neighboring container port but is only 3 minutes by taxi from the Central Business District.

The white cube concept of a large, versatile open space and high ceilings within an industrial setting fits the image of being part of an avant-garde art hub.

Artspace@Helutrans has become a highly sought after venue for our collectors to display their art collections and for all sorts of events such as exhibitions, auctions, product launches and fashion shows.
