Art and antique moving is never something that the experts recommend you do yourself. In fact they will tell you that it is best you leave the job to a professional in the field. However, if you must move these items as part of a do-it-yourself project, you will need to invest in a few moving materials so that they won’t be damaged.
One of the first things you must do is get in touch with a representative from a store that specializes in art and antiques. In most cases they will either sell you the items that you need to safely transport your items to your new home, or even go that extra mile and package it for you as well. Depending on the items you have on hand, you may be able to invest in really sturdy boxes to move your items as well.
For removing artwork, you can measure it yourself before taking it to the store to get an art box that matches in size, even leaving a bit of space so that it can fit comfortably. Even if there is still a little space left between the frame and the box, you can fill the spaces with a material that will not damage the items.
There are also crates that are available to hold your art and antiques as well. However, it can’t hurt to get a few pointers from seasoned art and antique movers in St. Augustine on how to pack these items.
