As fine art has become more commonplace in homes, the need for fine art moving services also increased. Fine art is often one of the most valuable and fragile fine works in their homes. It’s important when moving fine art that it be moved by professionals who know how to handle it properly.
Fine Art Moving
There is only one chance for your fragile items to be moved correctly with fine art. If something happens on the way from Point A to Point B, even a tiny bump can damage your precious cargo. You’ve invested a lot into these works of art, so make sure they are handled with care.
Crating Fine Art
Your fine art movers will work closely with our customers to ensure that your fine art is carefully packed for shipping. We use custom crates exclusively designed just for your items and monitor them very closely throughout the whole move.
Our movers take the time to carefully measure each valuable art piece to create the perfect customized crate for your precious items. Whether you’re moving a single piece of fine art or an entire collection, Hercules Movers will ensure, throughout the relocation, that your artwork arrives safe and sound at its destination.
If you’re in the market for art moving services, it’s crucial to consider Hercules. Not only do our movers offer hard crate services, but they also offer soft crate services for your artwork. This is an option if you’re looking for a more inexpensive way to transport artwork.
Wood VS Cardboard
Wooden crates are seen as the more professional and secure way to move art, as they are less likely to damage the pieces. However, they can be more expensive and difficult to transport, as they are heavier and take up more space.
Wooden crates are best suited to:
- Sculptures/Antiques made of granite, marble, or other variety of rock
- Paintings valued at $1000 or higher
- Private collectors pieces
- Art donated to museums
Cardboard crates are a more affordable option and can be easily disposed of or recycled after use. We will bubble wrap each art piece before we box it up for that extra layer of security.
However, they are not quite as long-lasting or sturdy as wooden crates and can quickly become damaged if not handled with care.
Cardboard crates are best suited to:
- Less expensive artwork (less than $1000)
- Sculptures/Antiques made of brass, iron, or other variety of metal
- Lamps and other glass and fragile pieces
Our company relocation coordinators will help customers come to the best solution for packing each art piece in terms of price and security. Whatever the decision, our movers will take the utmost care to protect your artwork throughout the process!
