How to Get the Best Mover for Your Art Pieces?
Prior to the moving process, it is important to plan and prepare. This includes understanding the value of your artwork, researching skilled movers in fine arts, and ensuring that you have the ideal supplies to protect your pieces. When estimating the value of your artwork, consider its historical and artistic significance, as well as its market value.

How to Protect Your Fine Arts During a Move?
Here is a detailed description of what we would do, If we were to move your valuable items for you:
Supplies and Packaging
When it comes to packing and moving fine arts, the right supplies and packaging are essential. This includes sturdy boxes, acid-free tissue paper, bubble wrap, and packing peanuts. We would also use plenty of packing tape, markers, and labels to label and secure each item.
When packing your artwork, we’d start by wrapping each piece in acid-free tissue paper, and then wrap it again in bubble wrap. Secure the bubble wrap in place with tape, and then place the wrapped artwork in a sturdy box. Next, we’d fill in any empty spaces in the box with packing peanuts, and then label the box with the contents and its destination.
Handling and Loading
When it comes time to handle and load your fine art, it is important to take extra care. This means lifting the pieces properly, using dollies and hand trucks to move larger items, and making sure that the items are secure in the moving truck. That’s why doing this alone is not the best decision option. Moreover, you would need a couple of extra hands when loading heavy valuable art pieces, which is why a team like Stark Movers is your best bet.
Prior to the move, it is important to create an inventory of your fine art and keep it with you during the move. This will help you keep track of your items, and it will also serve as proof of ownership in the event of damage or loss.
