- Hugo Worthy, The Gallery DMU

“Van Haulin came recommended to us when we found ourselves in a fix with little time to collect 17 artworks all located in different locations from Newcastle to London.  Alex not only managed to collect all the works with very little notice but he helped us put together the complex timetable of collections.  He is an expert handler and experienced working with the peculiarities of art galleries and artists.  His fee was very reasonable and he will be our go to man with a van from now on.”
