Toronto -- A Toronto franchise location of Navis Pack & Ship was selected to provide fine art packaging and delivery services for the 14th Annual Art With Heart, one of Canada's highest grossing charity art auctions. The Oct. 16th event raised a record $406,250 for Casey House, a supportive care organization for people suffering from AIDS and HIV.
Navis Pack & Ship delivered more than half of this year's collection, which featured works by prominent Canadian contemporary artists such as Edward Burtynsky, Darren Cerkownyk, Douglas Coupland, Ken Danby, Greg Girard, Attila Richard Lukacs, Charles Pachter and Harold Town. Navis also handled a featured work by artist James Lahey, which sold for the evening's highest price tag, $27,000.
Ritchies Auctioneers, which conducted the auction, recommended Navis Pack & Ship to the Art With Heart organization. This Navis franchise location regularly provides packaging, shipping and delivery services for fine art and antiques to Ritchies' clients.

Navis Logistics Network has been franchising since 1984 with a retail entity, Handle With Care Packaging Store, which was founded in 1980. We specialize in packaging and shipping Fragile, Large, Awkward and Valuable items - what we call FLAV. We established Navis Pack and Ship Centers in 2001 and began to seriously franchise this concept in 2002. Navis has the same FLAV emphasis as The Packaging Store, but focuses instead on the business-to-business market. This is an uncrowded, $34 billion market expected to grow to more that $50 billion in the next four to five years. Our business model focuses on (but is not limited to) 100-200 pound items with total logistics solutions: door-to-door delivery, packaging, and full insurance coverage. It includes small residential and commercial moves. Potential customers need cost -efficient ways to ship manufactured technical, scientific, and medical equipment; computers; antiques, and fine art.
