Fragile Removals

Posted on June 27, 2016 by wardthomas

One of the most nerve wracking things about moving is the issue of valuables. Will a certain fragile item make it? From furniture to chandeliers, to artwork, at Ward-Thomas Removals, there is always a specific method for packing fragile items for moving.


When it comes to packing artwork for moving, Anthony Ward Thomas is one of the most experienced in fine art removals in London. We continue to have a section of the company dedicated solely to the packaging, storage and moving of valuable fine art, both to private homes and to high end galleries and auction houses.


There are a multitude of different materials used for wrapping fragile items. Generally it will be the most experienced of the men who will plant himself in the kitchen wrapping glasses and crockery in paper. Wooden crates will be used for chandeliers and even the most heavy and wildly shaped ornaments can have boxes specially built around them so they can receive maximum support.


Moving your fragile items can be incredibly stressful but our team are experienced and knowledgeable in fragile removals and will immediately inspire trust and remove that burden.

No day off on the slopes

Anthony Ward Thomas and sister company Aussie Man and Van set off for the French Alps just before Xmas for one of our interior design companies with furniture and fitting for 5 brand new Chalets in the popular resort of Val d’Isere.

After gathering all the pieces at our warehouse in Park Royal over a period of three months, the convoy of 5 trucks hit the road with a combined crew of 10 of our finest removal men to Dover and through the Channel Tunnel and headed south via Paris for the Alps.

A combination of 18 ton Removal Lorries and vans drove for nearly 900 miles before arriving at their final destination.

After two days of loading, unpacking, and arranging all the items in the various new chalets our customer was happy every item was in the right location and ready for a new season before the snow fell in December.

So sadly no day off on the slopes for the Anthony Ward Thomas ski team, but maybe next time?
