Additionally, we have a Fragile and Piano removal services that have similar levels of expertise in use. Items such as Ming vases or chandeliers can be easily broken during handling and in transit. This means that the positioning of an entire load of furniture must be correct during the packing process.

Our Piano Removal service is precisely what it sounds like, which sounds very simple. But if you ask someone who has a grand piano, they’ll attest to the difficulty when trying to move home with one. It requires a lot of planning and possibly hoists for people who live in tall buildings with multiple floors.

Storage Options for Collectors and Professionals –

Unless you own a suitably large garage or have a dedicated workplace, it’s unlikely you’ll have enough room for your art and antiques. This makes it challenging to guarantee their safekeeping as you pack everything in anticipation of your relocation. It’s also worth noting that our homes don’t have the right things in place to entirely keep the elements out, which is also true for theft via a break-in.

However, storage offers this and more, but it needs to be through a reputable provider with a proven track record. When it comes to fine art, sculptures, and antique furniture, only the highest standard of service delivery will do. Every item requires an expert performing handling and packing skills beyond the capabilities of most movers.

That’s why those in the know choose to work with Anthony Ward Thomas. We have top-tier storage packages available, specifically for delicate and valuable pieces. Furthermore, there are separate packages for short and long-term periods. You receive excellent security measures as standard, with CCTV monitoring coverage for the entire depot.

Collections from Art Galleries and Exhibitions –

When it comes to packing and handling art and antiques at a professional level, working with experts is necessary. That’s why galleries and curators choose Anthony Ward Thomas for transportation purposes. Unless you have a dedicated in-house person, make sure you sub-contract to a company with premium and specialist expertise.

We can help you plan and organise everything, which starts from the assessment process. Typically, there will be a preparation period before an exhibition begins. The nature of art events requires a lot of input from several parties, which takes a consummate level of organisation. You’ll have time to strategise on what pieces will need to move between locations. Then you can have us on stand-by in the instance of a sale.

The Anthony Ward Thomas team works with galleries and auction houses across London and the surrounding areas. It’s all down to previous successful experiences and peace of mind we will get it right.

Customer Service is Vital for Your Art and Antiques –

The slightest misstep can cause a dent or scratch. And when you’re working with extremely valuable goods, this is not conceivable.

Before you book anything, check out any prospective company to see what their Google and Trustpilot ratings are. Additionally, read the reviews and any website testimonials from previous customers.
