When it comes to moving, we often take the time to wrap up things like frames and dishes. Even if we do our best, there are times when we arrive at our destination with broken items because we opted to pack ourselves. Most of these instances aren’t a big deal — glasses and frames can be replaced fairly easily. However, what do you do when you need something one-of-a-kind, valuable, or irreplaceable moved? When you need to move an antique, you can use these tips to ensure your antique moving goes well:
- Find antique moving professionals. There are professional movers and then there are antique movers. These two terms are not always interchangeable! Seek out a professional company that mentions antique moving specifically in their services. Antiques are not like other items and need to be moved with an extra layer of care, including the occasional assembly and disassembly.
- Have a storage space prepared and ready. If your antique moving is going from a home into storage or safe-keeping, make the transition smooth by having the space clean and ready for the antique moving. Some antiques need consistently warm temperatures so make sure to find an appropriate storage space if that is the case.
- Get appropriate insurance. Sometimes accidents just happen. If your antique moving involves a valuable item, make sure that it is appropriately insured just in case.
