You may be a passionate art collector with quite a few valuable pieces of sculpture art, or simply someone who keeps such beautiful, but fragile items for their sentimental value. Either way, you will want to keep them safe and intact in case you are planning a move. We came up with a handful of useful tips. This text will help you to wisely plan, pack and choose the right moving company when you are relocating sculptures. With our assistance, you can do it in the safest way possible, so let’s get down to business!

Preparation for relocating sculptures

Packing for a move can often be challenging and exhausting, especially when you need to take care of the fragile items. Fortunately, there are a few steps which can be taken as a precaution. First of all, when you are moving sculptures, you should know their exact measures, including height, width and weight. They often come in the most unusual shapes, can be extremely delicate or heavy.

You should also take measurements of the relocation site to make sure they will fit in. Some sculptures can be reassembled, which will make the process easier both for you and for the commercial movers Brooklyn Heights. Therefore, you should know all the details and potential risks before you start packing.

Essentials of packing and storage – what do you need to have?

Moving sculptures can be risky, so be sure to find the right affordable movers Brooklyn prides itself on and get all the items and materials necessary to make the move safe. These may include:

  • newspapers or old clothes if you pack only smaller figurines may sometimes be sufficient
  • cardboard containers are also more fit for smaller and less fragile items
  • when relocating sculptures, the best choice is a foam padded wooden crate
  • if you have more than one sculpture, pack each one individually
  • if the sculpture has an unusual shape, fill the holes and crevices with foam or bubble wrap
  • position them upright and make sure they have enough cushioning so they cannot move
  • In addition to that you should also think about keeping your belongings unharmed in some of the storage units Brooklyn has to offer.

Make your move as easy as possible – you don’t have to do it all on your own

Moving is never a simple process. It gets even more difficult when you take into consideration the fact that you are relocating sculptures, something easy to damage, but difficult, if not impossible to replace. However, it doesn’t have to be that stressful. We strongly advise you not to do this kind of move on your own, since the damage can be immense. Therefore, hiring the right moving company is of crucial importance. Feel free to contact us and relocate your belongings without risking to ruin their appearance or value.
