Your antiques are a valuable part of your home, so it’s no surprise that you want to ensure they stay safe and unscathed during the moving process. There are precautions you can take to safely move your antiques.
Salt Lake City Antique Movers suggest you start by taking an inventory of your antiques, and decide whether you want to invest the time, money, and energy into moving each of them. If you’d rather just hang on to a few special pieces, try donating or selling some items to lighten your moving load.
When you have decided on your favorite pieces, you must prepare them for an easy move. Take all items out of your antiques, so they’re easier to move. Place pillows or blankets inside antique cabinets that have glass doors, this will help eliminate possible shock of vibration during the moving process.
Consider wrapping your antiques in plastic wrap to avoid small dings that come from moving them through a house or onto a truck. Since wood pieces need to breathe to maintain their organic material, try wrapping paper around the wood, then covering it in plastic wrap.
Create an “X” shape with tape across glass surfaces, which will help protect against breakage. Wrap your antiques in thick cardboard, and large blankets for added protection. Your Salt Lake City antique movers will ensure each piece if placed gently onto our moving trucks, and moved with the utmost care.
