AD&CO Logistics brought to you by The Antiques Diva Touring Company

TOMA HAINES is The Antiques Diva & Co and owner of AD&CO LOGISTICS.  Toma is a larger then life, exhuberant character whom it's been my pleasure to meet and I can't speak highly enough of Toma or her businesses.  She is very friendly and approachable and well known throughout the world as Europe's largest Antique touring company and it a reputation well earnt, and well deserved.  Her representatives cover 8 countries in Europe and 6 in Asia.

To compliment these services AD&CO LOGISTICS was created to serve and provide high quality antique and fine art shipping services from Europe to destinations around the globe.  With Toma and her team's experience over many years of dealing in antiques and art, there is literally no-one better placed to ensure you receive your items in the manner you would expect.  To this end, AD&CO have partnered with an international shipping company and together they provide a white glove service, second to none, with first class packing of all items and objects.
