The Art of Moving Art: How We Ensure Safe Transport for Your Valuables

For many, art is more than just a decorative element; it’s a cherished possession, a window into the soul, and a source of emotional connection. The thought of entrusting your precious artwork to movers can be nerve-wracking. Here at Advantage Moving, we understand the emotional and financial value attached to your art collection, and that’s why we take the “art” of moving art very seriously.

Beyond Boxes and Bubble Wrap: Specialized Techniques

Moving artwork requires a specialized approach that goes far beyond standard packing methods. Our team of experienced and certified art movers utilizes a combination of industry best practices and advanced techniques to ensure the safe transport of your valuables:

  • Art Assessment and Consultation: Prior to your move, we offer a free in-home consultation to evaluate your artwork and determine the most appropriate packing and transportation methods. This includes considering the size, value, fragility, and material of each piece.
  • Custom Crating: Standard cardboard boxes simply won’t do for artwork. Our team builds custom crates tailored to the specific dimensions of each piece, providing a secure and stable environment during transport. These crates are constructed from high-quality archival materials that offer superior protection against bumps, vibrations, and temperature fluctuations.
  • Climate-Controlled Transportation: Extreme temperatures and humidity swings can damage artwork. That’s why we offer climate-controlled vehicles to ensure a consistent environment throughout the move. This minimizes the risk of warping, cracking, or fading of your precious pieces.
  • Specialized Packing Materials: Beyond custom crates, we use a variety of specialized packing materials, including acid-free tissue paper, museum-grade foam padding, and climate-controlled art blankets, to provide additional cushioning and protection during transport.
  • Art Handling Expertise: Our movers are extensively trained in the proper handling of artwork. They understand the delicate nature of different materials and employ specialized lifting and carrying techniques to prevent damage.

Moving Beyond the Canvas: Protecting All Your Collectibles

Our expertise extends beyond just paintings and sculptures. We can also handle the safe transport of a variety of additional collectibles, including:

  1. Antiques and heirlooms: Family heirlooms and antique furniture pieces require meticulous care. Our team utilizes specialized techniques to ensure their safe arrival at your new destination.
  2. Rare books and documents: These cherished items are particularly susceptible to damage from humidity and temperature fluctuations. Our climate-controlled transportation and specialized packing materials safeguard their condition.
  3. Musical instruments: Whether it’s a delicate violin or a grand piano, our experienced movers possess the expertise to handle your musical instruments with the utmost care.
