London’s Artwork and Antiques Moving Experts
When you need to pack and transport things like artwork and antiques, it takes expertise and excellent handling skills to do it properly. This is something most removal companies are unable to guarantee, and it’s wise to take your time before you book one. And if you’re thinking of doing it yourself, it’s usually a bad idea, unless you have prior experience.
To avoid any breakages or damage when moving art and antiques, it’s better to contact the Anthony Ward Thomas team.
A Dedicated Removals Package for Art and Antiques –
When it comes to moving a valuable piece of art or an antique, people often consider two main areas where damage can occur. The first is carrying the objects out of or into a building which comes with problems of contact between the item and solid features. The second thing most people think has the most chance of damage is during the transit, usually in a removal’s van.
However, there is a third situation that only specialists like our experts at Anthony Ward Thomas know about. The protective packaging can also cause artwork damage is it has an adhesive coating. Similarly, certain packaging can remove varnish or scratch the antique furniture’s wood. This is enough to send a chill down the spine of any collector or seller, as it affects the item’s value.
In addition to this, poorly thought-out placement of objects in the removal vehicle will cause items to bang against each other. And not all pieces can be strapped with rope to prevent movement. If this is beginning to sound a bit complicated, that’s because it is. For this reason, Anthony Ward Thomas has the right people and tools to prevent such issues.
