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.

All our staff is going through extensive video-training to provide a top-notch service for our customer. In addition, our antique moving team know all the challenges that could occur during the move. Don’t hesitate to consult them in case you have some concerns aroused!

What Clients say About Us

Matt Singer

I used Hercules Moving to move a piano from my basement to a purchaser. They were very professional, packaged the piano carefully, put down mats on flooring and removed it very efficiently. I'd recommend these guys for any moving needs for sure!!

Oleg Levine

I hired this company about month ago to move me into new house. 3 athletic looking guys arrived on-time and did a very good job. Whatever I did not finish packing -they did it for me. Then loaded all my staff into big truck and moved into new house. They were working nonstop. Everything was done very accurately within promised time. Very responsible and polite guys. If happens to move again I certainly will hire them again and of course will recommend this company to my friends. Greater job guys. Thanks a lot.

Laura Ellen

I am very happy with these movers. They showed up on time with polite, respectful and hard working people and got the job done right. These Guelph movers moved me out, stored my belongings for 3 weeks while I renovated my new place and moved me in today. I would use them again for sure. The ease of full service for both moving and storage was of great value to me.

Becky

Me and my husband had to relocate Becker piano, which I inherited from my grandmother, and since the piano was antique and pretty expensive, we couldn’t let just anybody to transport it. It’s so easy to damage a piano without the right equipment and technique. That’s why we took the advice of my friends and had chosen Hercules piano movers, as the company that inspires trust due to their experience. To our delight, a piano was transported on the same day without any problems or damages.

Wilmson

This experienced company was very impressive. The staff were impeccable in takedown, storage and setup. They cared for our homes on pickup and delivery with extra floor coverings and the commitment to customer service was outstanding. Thank you Igor. Valdas and Vides. W & J (and the dog)

Katlez T.

We were looking for help moving between cities and Hercules provided us with stellar service. They were communicative with us and easy to reach leading up to the move to answer any questions. The Victoria movers arrived early and they were efficient, polite, and careful. Hercules took the stress out of the big move and I would recommend them to everyone and anyone! Well worth the money :)

Susan

Really patient and dedicated guys! They treated all of our furniture and belongings with the utmost care while still being incredibly efficient. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
