The Art of Fine Art Moving
Transporting priceless art and other high-end pieces can be complicated. Many moving companies in the Dallas area won’t handle these items, or if they do, they only offer “move at your own risk” guarantees. How can you get the fine art moving services you need without doing these logical gymnastics? Hire a company that knows how to handle fine art moves.
Moving Valuables: It’s an Art
Of course, there may be some hesitation on your part. After all, you’re trusting strangers to properly handle and safely transport your most precious items. Whether your artwork is irreplaceable or just too valuable to trust to a regular mover, you need one with the kind of experience that will give you peace of mind.
Some key factors to consider during fine art moves include:
- While it’s called white glove service, well-trained art handlers today don’t actually use white gloves anymore. The best choice for protecting the art of any kind and ensuring safe handling are butyl nitrate gloves.
- All art should be properly handled and packed before, during and after transit. Make sure that whoever you partner with for your fine art move provides ample packing materials and knows how to properly utilize them.
- Some packaging materials react chemically in a negative way with some types of artistic medium. Inquire about your provider’s knowledge of these reactions before committing to service.
- Movestar also can build custom crating for your pieces. We build crates for chandeliers, works of art, furniture, and anything else you need to move or store.
- Many art movers will provide one or more staff members to ride in a vehicle cabin alongside your art piece to prevent damage. I this is available – and legal, in your area – then choose this service for even greater safety.
