What Our Customers Think Of Us
We had an antique cabinet that we needed to move to our new place down the street. We approached quite a few movers but they did not want to take up the job because the cabinet is quite expensive. We spoke to Charlotte quite a few times and they came to our place to do a quotation. The move was a little pricey but we had to settle with them in the end. The move was done quite efficiently and the cabinet was well taken care off. Would recommend them to anybody looking to move their antiques.
Antique Moving Tips
As professional antique movers, we know exactly what we need to do to move your antiques safely and protect it from any scratches, dents or damages. However, if you choose to move it yourself, here are some tips you can follow to keep your antiques safe and sound.
- Use Ample Cushioning – Delicate pieces of porcelain should be wrapped with bubble wrap and placed in cardboard boxes. Ensure that there is no free space in the box so that the pieces do not shift around while being transported. The empty space can be filled with crushed newspaper or styrofoam peanuts.
- Secure Loose Components – If possible, the antique drawers and doors should be locked. For additional protection, moving parts like the drawers and doors need to properly secured with tape and cling wrap so that it does not swing open.
- Mind The Surfaces – Damaged surfaces will significantly reduce to value of the antiques and this is especially so for wooden surfaces. Plastic that comes into contact directly with the wood tends to trap moisture that then damages the surface. For wooden antiques, it is best to wrap them with wooden blankets because using the plastic wraps to secure the protection.
These basic tips can help you to safely move and relocate your antique if you plan to do it by yourself. But of course, we really expensive antiques, we would still recommend you to use Rentalorry’s antique movers because we have the necessary equipment, skill and knowledge to do so properly.
