IMES is offering to conduct free appraisals of media assets, such as audio or video master recordings, that were damaged in the March 3rd tornadoes. If these appraisals are used for insurance purposes, once the claims have been processed, IMES can help coordinate and provide any remediation or restoration services necessary in its L.A. and New Jersey studio facilities. Additionally, IMES is offering free storage at its Nashville facility for up to 60 days for studio equipment, musical instruments, or media that have been displaced by the storms, while cleanup takes place.
Also, for anyone who has sustained damage to their fine art, IMES will work with its Crozier Fine Arts division to help access damage and offer advice on insurance claims, restoration, etc. The Crozier Fine Arts division is a storage, logistics and transportation firm for high-value paintings, photographs and other types of art belonging to individual collectors, galleries and art museums.
“Nashville is not only one of the most passionate music communities on the planet, but also it has the highest concentration of artists, engineers and producers in the world. The events of March 3rd affected the music community deeply,” stated Lance Podell, SVP and GM of Iron Mountain Entertainment Services. “Our goal is to help Nashville’s music community get back on its feet as quickly as possible, and we have a dedicated team of specialists on the ground to work with and advise those affected by this catastrophe in individualized ways.”
