Requesting antique moving services
When it comes to moving antique items, you may want to have a customized moving plan. With our expertise, your local antique moving company will provide you with an extensive step by step action plan to help you get organized. However, some of the information you better collect before contacting professional antique movers.
First of all, you will need to find out the dimensions of your items; this will help us to understand the size and a form needed for a crate. Next, you will need to learn your item from the inside, some of the things hollow inside, or in case it is furniture it may have some shelves. For art, you may even need to consult an artist to have an idea of what material has been used for the specific piece. Third preparation step you should consider is Insurance or Replacement Value Coverage. Gallery insurance or your private insurance could cover art damage; in this case, you may need to contact them and request all required documents. However, sometimes people don’t purchase additional insurance for their antiques; In this situation we have your back covered! We provide full Value Replacement Coverage, which is based on the value of the item. To determine value, we recommend inviting art appraisal specialist, as the antique moving company may request a certificate of appraisal.
By having all of the above, before requesting the antique moving service, you will shorten the preparation time for a plan as well as receive more precise service estimate. As soon as you approve the plan, our antique moving experts will begin preparing all necessary items for the move: crates, bubble-wrap, supplies and boxes for moving, stretch wrap and cotton moving blankets. They also will make a move plan by analyzing the surfaces and a floor plan of pickup and delivery buildings.
