Godson & Coles

“Hemisphere are proactive, highly professional and helpful, meaning that they can navigate or advise on any challenges that we might have, which lifts the stress when selling to international clients. Moreover, the integrated service means that we can eliminate the complexity of using multiple shippers. They offer competitive rates and a vastly superior service. I would definitely recommend Hemisphere to art galleries looking for a partner that they can trust.”
