Emergency Services

Terry Dowd, Inc. brings over 30 years of trusted art handling experience and takes pride in being part of the Midwest’s best first response team for art world disasters.

We already know what we’re up against BEFORE we get to the scene; thusly lessening the odds of further damage and lessening the time on site.  Getting the artwork out correctly and efficiently will save money in both the evacuation and restoration processes. 

Each plan consists of a report containing: piece inventory, condition report, location sheet, evacuation route, building specifications, packing materials list and packing instructions which is filed at our office. For items that require crating, those crates can be prefabricated and stored for a very nominal fee or produced fairly quickly after the disaster.  If indeed a disaster occurs, where most responders are surveying the scene to figure out the next step, we’re coming with all the facts and everything in hand: equipment, materials, crating, and man power to get the job done safely; without guess work.

In addition to the planning aspect, we have conservators for both artwork and furniture, climate controlled storage facilities and consultation services to deal with the aftermath.  TDI is an excellent choice to call for any art world disaster; large or small.  Our experienced eye will lend in getting the evacuation done quickly and our reputation insures it will be done correctly.  TDI simply has the best resources in the business, all under one roof, to help you restore a treasured part of your life to normalcy.
