2 Reasons To Work With A Fine Art Moving Company


If you have a fine art collection and you are moving, then you need to make sure that you can get your art moved safely. You don't want to leave anything up to chance, because damage to your art can reduce your enjoyment of the piece, and it can reduce the value of the art as well. That's why you may want to consider professional fine art delivery services to move your collection for you. There are several reasons for this. 


One reason to hire a moving company that handles fine art is that they are going to make sure that all of their employees are trained to be able to handle various kinds of fine arts. A fine arts moving company may have teams that are broken down by kinds of art. For example, they may have one team that specializes in moving paintings while another team is in charge of moving sculptures. That training should let the employees move the art with a much lower risk of damage. Depending on the size and type of art, there is a non-zero chance of risk, but the more experience and training the moving crew has, the smaller that chance is. 


Moving fine art requires different kinds of equipment. For example, sculptures may require support frames and boxes to hold them upright. Paintings may also require special boxes so that the painting can travel upright and without moving. The fine art moving company will have the kinds of boxes and supports that your art is going to need to make it to its new location safely. On top of that, the employees are going to be able to build frames and boxes to fit art that is unevenly sized or that has a lot of extensions or pieces. The equipment also includes dollies and lifts that can lift and carry the pieces from their location to the truck and vice versa. Depending on the piece and its size, that equipment could even be something like a forklift. 

If you have a fine art collection and you need to move, you want to make sure that you have the right people to move it for you. That means that you should contact a moving company that specializes in fine art. They can handle your art while you have a different moving company handle all the rest of your belongings. That way everything will get to your new location with a small risk of damage.

Stop the Insanity! Moving Doesn't Have to Be Crazy/Hectic

Finding out you have to move again can bring on feelings of anxiety, panic and frustration. You may be tempted to put it off, packing and scrambling at the last minute, or waiting for your "help" to take a day off so they can help you pack. Then there's the friend or family member that always wants to help you by purging all of your stuff and dropping it curbside. Stop the insanity before it starts. Moving and storage companies understand the stress of moving and can help you get started before the move. Then they move all of your stuff without question and will not "purge" anything you do not want them to. It makes for a smoother, easier, less frustrating transition all around.
