Office movers will help you take care of that painting, sculpture, canvas or print.
Most offices like to brighten their spaces with original art. Some offices even have art collections appraised to have high value.
Protecting your art is especially important if you are relocating to a new office.
Your office movers should do their best to protect those precious canvasses and fragile figures, but for an especially fragile or expensive piece of art, or if moving a large group of paintings, your commercial movers should also be able to supply you with designed cartons or wooden crates that provide extra protection to ensure the safety of your art during the move.
Here are some tips on protecting your art for a move.
Fragile is an understatement if you are moving anything with glass.
Whether it’s an original landscape by one of the Group of Seven or a collection of contemporary abstracts by an artist on the rise, you need your office movers to handle these pieces with the utmost care:
With their odd sizes, shapes and fragile construction, sculptures and other three-dimensional art pieces require extra care. If the sculpture comes as part of a set, or has any removable pieces, make sure you wrap each piece individually.
Some sculptures, especially those made of stone such as marble can be incredibly heavy, so make sure you take extra care when preparing it for your office movers.
Unlike fragile glass or stone, prints and canvasses tend to be a bit more durable. However, you still want to make sure your wood or foam-backed canvasses, unframed paintings, prints or photographs don’t snap, bend or buckle before your office movers arrive.
