Standard moving companies can handle the relocation of a household or business. However, specialist art movers are required for moving antiques and fine art. You should only trust art moving professionals who specialize in transporting such precious cargo.
Why choose specialist art movers?
Expert art movers are skilled in ensuring that your art arrives at its destination safely. The services of specialist art movers are well worth the investment. They manage all aspects of relocation for private collectors, museums, galleries, and exhibits.
Original fine artworks are rare and irreplaceable. Transporting artwork from one place to another poses many risks to each piece. You run the risk that your valuable pieces may be damaged if you don’t hire professional art movers.
Poor packaging can cause scratches and fail to protect against dings or gouges. A piece of work could also be damaged if it is exposed to the wrong materials and climates. You might lose or steal your artwork.
These are just a few of the reasons it is prudent to entrust your paintings, sculptures, and other art to an experienced art transport professional.
Secure Fine Art in Transport Preparation
Each piece of artwork has its own unique characteristics that determine the best packing method. Art movers consider the physical needs of paintings, ceramics, antiques, and sculptures and select a packaging method proven to work:
- Use nonabrasive blankets and foams to protect artwork surfaces.
- To support and secure artwork, create shadow boxes using cardboard frames.
- To avoid staining or leaching colors, identify the chemical properties of tapes.
- For unusually shaped or large items, you can build custom crates.
Transporting your artwork can pose the greatest danger to it. We know how to coordinate the safest routes and fastest routes.

Fine art shipping companies understand the value of using high-quality packaging materials for transporting fragile art items. If you are able to see that the company’s experts use high-quality packaging materials, and can distinguish between different types of artworks and the packaging that they require, it will be a sign that they are reliable and trustworthy.
Fine art crating and shipping requires extra care when shipping. Many of these items are made from glass or other fragile materials and require extra care. Many owners of these precious artworks have difficulty finding professional shipping companies that understand the importance and complexity of art handling. You need to be sure that your art will arrive in its original condition, regardless of whether you are an artist, collector, or buyer.
