Fail to Prepare, Prepare to Fail

It’s not simply the packing and unpacking of your fragile items but also the worry that your prized possessions, along with your other personal possessions, will be damaged in transit.

And if you want to move an expensive piece of fine art or a precious vase, well, then there are added worries like theft or accidental breakage.

packing and unpacking of your fragile items

No wonder so many people decide to sell off their delicate items at home when they pack up and move! But if you’re willing to take on all these risks for your extremely valuable items, there are a few ways to make the process go more smoothly:

Professional Movers Who Crate It Up

As any mover will know, moving antiques can be a tricky business. So what are some of the most efficient ways to ship valuable items to your new location that you don’t want to be broken?

By fully licensed professional movers specializing in packing fine art, of course!

Your movers will put together the framework for your custom crate, so your antique items are held in place securely. They’ll also fill any gaps with custom foam supplies within the crate, so your precious items are cushioned.

The professionals will even attach numbered ID tags on all sides of your crates with precious antiques and fine art therein so you can keep track of it at all times during the move, in case anything does happen along the way!

Make A Plan With Your Moving Company

If you’re moving across the country, you know that the items you carry take up a lot of space. So while your movers are taking care of all this for you, make sure to let our professionals know exactly where things will go in your new home.

We will have the appropriate packing supplies by keeping our moving services team posted about your antique and fine art pieces before we ship these personal belongings. There won’t be any surprises or backaches when our moving services are complete. It comes time to unpack all your boxes.

This will also guarantee that no time is wasted once the moving service is complete, and you can get on with unpacking and placing your antiques and fragile objects as fast as possible!

Purchase Insurance: With Your Moving Services Or Third-Party

When you are moving antiques long distances, it is important to purchase full value insurance if anything happens to your fragile antiques in the moving van. It’s possibly the most critical aspect of any additional services you will require.

Without insurance, if something were to happen to your antiques during transport with your moving company, the cost for customers replacing moving antiques could range in the tens of thousands of dollars and destroy your moving experience.

By going forward and purchasing full value protection and making sure that your antique belongings are insured, you can protect your investment and ensure that you will be able to replace any damaged or lost items.

So how can you make sure your antiques are insured? As the customer, you have at least three options:

With Your Home Owners/Renters Insurance

This should be the first point that customers should research before taking any other action. There are often specific limitations to how much your homeowners/renters insurance will cover, such as international moves, but it may be the best option if you have enough coverage.

Customers can always contact their homeowners or renters insurance provider before moving to request that they review your policy restrictions and give you a quote for furniture and antique valuables moving insurance.

With Your Moving Company

If you are moving with professional movers who crate up all your antiques and fine art pieces, they will be able to provide you with full value insurance.

All moving companies can include direct coverage in their free moving estimate. This means that the moving company promises you a full replacement cost for any of your fragile antiques damaged during the moving service.

When speaking with your moving industry coordinator about your free quote, make sure that insurance is included in the price.

Third-Party Insurance Company

Many people assume that their homeowner’s or renters’ insurance will cover moving-related damages during long-distance moves, but this is not always the case.

In fact, customers purchasing moving insurance for their furniture and antique items through a third-party company is often the surest way to secure the best price.

Third-party providers are professionals in the insurance industry and offer various coverage options.

You can be sure to find one that fits your specific needs. They also tend to offer a better price than coverage through homeowners’ or renters’ insurance policies.

And, if something should happen during the move or new location, having coverage through a third-party moving insurance provider will make the customer process of filing a claim much more straightforward.

Insurance is Key!

Make sure that you’re keenly aware of all the processes for ensuring your fine art pieces and antiques will guarantee an easy-moving experience, with no unwelcome surprises along the way!

How Antique Movers Get To Work

You may be wondering how the service is carried out, whereby a professional moving company like Hercules can adequately ascertain what packing is required for your glass pieces, art, and antiques. And how do we properly factor moving antiques into your free moving estimate?

Antique Movers

In-Home Survey

A free, no-obligation survey of your home is all part of the moving service to Hercules. One of the most important steps we execute is to measure each antique and other valuable item.

This will help us to determine the dimensions of the wooden crates required for the packing process so that your antiques are safe and secure during their journey.

To get a pinpointed estimate of the cost of your move, every locally based mover is obligated to offer a free in-home survey.

This will allow the movers to assess the size of your items, as well as the distance of your move. This way, they can offer you an accurate estimate of the cost of your move.

Packaging Materials

The antique moving company will take all the necessary steps to ensure that your antiques and fine art pieces are packed with love and care.

There is no such thing as too much protection when packing fragile items, and we understand this completely.

After all, we’ve been in the antique moving service for quite some time and understand that you need companies like ours to ship high-price items like fine art paintings and rugs safely and securely to their new location.

Each of your items will be custom crated with bubble wrap or peanuts; we leave no stone unturned when packing services are needed.

Storage For Your Fine Art and Valuables

We have a climate-controlled storage warehouse onsite that will protect your belongings from the heat, cold, humidity, and other environmental factors. We will keep your valuables in our climate-controlled storage facility until you are ready to receive them.

Hercules uses wooden storage crates in our climate-controlled facility to service the safeguarding of your valuables. The boxes are specially tailored to protect your belongings from the elements, whether extreme heat or cold.

Security

At Hercules Movers, we take the security of our customers’ belongings very seriously. That’s why we have 24-hour security services in our storage warehouse. This means that your valuables are well-protected at all times.

And because the storage facility is located on our property, we can cut down on insurance costs, resulting in trickle-down savings in your free estimate.

High-Price Art, Low-Cost Peace of Mind

Thank you Hercules Movers and Packers for making my move to CA go so smoothly. They moved me out of my Houston home and stored my items for a few months until I was ready to receive my items. I waited two weeks and my items arrived with minimal damage. Recommended.

The movers showed up on time and worked quickly in getting my furniture loaded onto the moving truck. They also did a great job in securing the boxes with tape and wrapping my leather sofa with moving blankets and plastic wrap to not damage it in the move or going up 3 flights of stairs.
