A professional art and antique mover in Boston should be an established and professional Boston moving company like Esquire Moving with the credentials and the dedicated training that is essential for techniques utilized in irreplaceable art and antique handling. Unlike other breakable items, artwork and antiques are generally inimitable pieces that exceed normal monetary value and can never be replicated. Esquire Moving has the patience, skill, and commitment to transport these extraordinary works of art from one location to another whether it is for a local Boston relocation or through a long distance move.
Before we proceed with the packing of your artwork and/or antiques, we feel that it is important to take inventory of each item through a photo cataloging process that will allow us to efficiently track the journey of each piece from the point in which we receive it until the moment that we deliver it safely to its new home.
As your chosen fine art moving company, the Esquire Moving experts will begin the process by first selecting materials that will preserve the integrity of each canvas with no chance of staining, marking, or smudging. We will use a special product called glassine, which is a moisture and grease resistant sheet of glossy paper that is distinguished by its smooth finish. We will cover and wrap the surface of each painting with the glassine to prevent any damage to the art. Then we will wrap and secure the entire piece again with a thick layer of foam before finally encasing it with bubble wrap to ensure complete front to back protection.
If you need the services of an antique moving company in Boston, you won’t have to look any further, because Esquire Moving will be the best choice for you. The process for protecting antiques is very similar to when we prepare your artwork. When we are ready to wrap and pack your artifacts, family heirlooms or other delicate antique furnishings, we will use glassine sheets to protect the exterior from anything that could create marks or cause discoloration. We will secure each object by wrapping it with a thick layer of pliable foam before the final step of using a specially designed blanket made with protective padding to cover in its entirety. We may add a layer of bubble wrap between the foam and blankets as an extra measure of protection to safeguard particular pieces that are exceedingly fragile or valuable.
To transport the artwork or antique pieces, the Esquire Moving team will begin by carefully placing each object inside of our wooden crates, which are customized to fit the dimensions of the intended contents. In addition, our art and antique movers will include extra padding to fill all gaps for enhanced safety. This procedure will prevent movement of the artwork or antique pieces while inside of the crates and will alleviate the possibility of any damage occurring while in transit. Each crate will be loaded and placed in the truck with extra care and precision for stable positioning throughout the trip.
If you require storage, your art or antique items will be well preserved within the climate controlled and spotless atmosphere of the storage spaces that we provide within the Esquire Moving warehouse. We offer various short and long-term storage solutions for residential and commercial moving, along with options for artwork and antique moving. In addition, our property and individual storage spaces are secured and monitored through our state-of-the-art 24-hour digital surveillance system.
Esquire Moving is proud of the long-term relationships that we have built and maintained over the years with a variety of reputable consignment stores and antique shops. We are connected to these merchants by our mutual goal of providing the highest quality of excellence possible to our shared art and antique moving customers. Esquire Moving has the expertise, respect, and graceful touch necessary to accommodate you as your preferred art and antique movers in Boston, whether we are handling a 17th century Aubusson tapestry wall hanging, a pair of 18th century Pierre Laroque stamped Canapés or an evocative original Kandinsky painting.
“Thank you Esquire Moving, you did such an incredible job! You transported my collection of family antiques flawlessly despite it being a long distance move to Atlanta. Hands down, you are the best antique moving company around and if I ever need this type of service again, I’ll be happy to pay for you to come back down to Georgia to help me!”
“I had a last minute scheduling conflict with the other movers that I reserved to move my partner’s art installations for a gallery showing. This situation almost turned into a huge disaster until my co-worker suggested Esquire Moving. You wouldn’t think of a regular moving company as an art moving company too, but they do it all. Some of the pieces were rather large and awkward, but they did a great job in wrapping and protecting all of the artwork. It was serendipitous, because we plan to use them from now on.”
“I am extremely satisfied with Esquire Moving. They were amazing antique movers and they also packed up my paintings like professionals. The movers were super patient with me and they didn’t seem to mind answering my millions of questions. I would recommend this company to my friends and family.”
