We are delighted to announce that our Royal Warrant for Fine Art Services to HM The Queen has been renewed for a further five years. The continued possession of this badge of honor acknowledges our ongoing art logistical services provided to the Royal Household and the Royal Collection. Gander & White is one of fewer than 700 companies that currently hold a Royal Warrant for services provided to HM The Queen.

The Royal Household Warrants Committee initially granted the warrant on behalf of HM The Queen in 2017 for a period of three years. Having gone through the reapplication process in Spring and Summer of 2018 the warrant has now been awarded to us for the maximum of five years, until March 2025. Our non-executive director Francelle White, the named ‘Grantee’ of the Warrant, says “for over 85 years we have endeavored to offer the highest quality service. We are thrilled to be honored in this way for our work provided to the Royal Household”.

Oliver Howell, our European Managing Director, says: “I’m immensely proud to have had this warrant renewed. I’ve seen Gander & White grow greatly in the 25 years since I started here and the renewal of our appointment is a real testament to the level of service we always strive to provide.”

All our vehicles can continue displaying the royal arms and legend indicating the reason for the appointment. All vehicles in the UK, France and the US can display this crest, making us the only fine art shipper with a Royal Warrant with facilities in France and the US.

Paul Cannon, Managing Director of US operations, says, “we are proud to be the only fine art shipper in the US to hold a Royal Warrant. It’s an instant marker of quality that we know our clients will appreciate.”

The current end of tenure for our Warrant is now 31 March 2025.
