You should not neglect to take special care of your valuables while relocating. Moving art, mirrors, antiques, and other valuables may be difficult. Mirrors, mirrored and unframed art, decorative art, canvas art, family heirlooms, family pictures, collectibles, rare keepsakes, and sentimental objects, antique furniture, porcelain and glass items, crystal barware and merchandise, china dinnerware, art sculptures, and everything else of significance in your home are examples of specialized products that need extra care while moving.
It might be better to employ a specialist moving company to manage the packaging and shipment of these, particularly important products. If you’ve opted to do any or all of your own packing and traveling, you’ll need to take extra care to keep it clean and stable. Materials, directions, and tips for successfully packing and transporting your jewelry, antiques, and other valuables are given below.
How To Safely Pack Mirrors, Framed Prints, And Artwork
Don’t want to pass the paintings or mirrors until you have the correct packaging materials. These would make a big difference in avoiding scratching or breaking of the objects.
To begin, find some huge, heavy-duty picture boxes.
Next, instead of using bubble wrap, it is highly advised to wrap your art and mirrors in Glassine.
If you think the object deserves additional security, cover it in a travelling blanket as well.
Finally, before loading the artwork onto the moving vehicle, be sure to position it in a location where it would not be crushed or broken by bulky furniture or big boxes.
How To Safely Pack Antiques
Antiques, from finely carved porcelain plates to inherited mahogany furniture, are often precious and irreplaceable to their owners. They may also be very valuable in terms of money, not to mention emotional value. Although it is highly recommended to recruit experts for the work, it is not always a choice. Fortunately, these recommendations can assist you in completing the mission on your own.
First, it is suggested to make a list of all you own in case anything is broken during the transfer. Take pictures, take notes, and make sure it is well recorded.
Next, gather all of your materials. You would almost certainly need some rolls of bubble wrap, packing tape, travelling blankets, boxes, and a tool kit.
If you’re carrying bulky antique furniture, enlist the assistance of some acquaintances and family members. Do not attempt to move bulky objects by yourself. You run the risk of scraping, denting, and destroying the antiques, lowering their worth.
If the furniture is huge and you can securely disassemble it, it is recommended to do so first.
When all of your pieces are ready, cover the antique in as much bubble wrap as practicable and seal it with tape.
Next, use moving blankets to add another layer of security to the furniture or household object and secure with tape.
It is firmly advised to store these valuables in a wooden crate after covering them in bubble wrap and transferring blankets.
Be sure you provide some spare sets of hands to assist with loading and unloading the antique. You don’t want to drop or smash the antique when hoisting it onto the vehicle.
Hiring A Specialist Moving Company
Of course, hiring experts to transfer fine art, mirrors, antiques, and other expensive objects is the safest option. Fortunately, many movers and moving firms specialize in packaging and storing such products.
