Moving Arts


Firstly, we strongly recommend wrapping your artwork and mirrors in Glassine, instead of the typical plastic wrap. Glassine is a smooth paper that is known for being air, water, and grease resistant. This should properly protect anything from blemishing your fine art, print, or glass. Glassine isn’t hard to find and can typically be purchased by the roll.


After securing the Glassine with packing tape, it’s time to break out the bubble wrap. Layer your artwork and mirrors several times in bubble wrap and secure with some more packing tape. We highly recommend wrapping the bubble wrap around the item at least twice to provide enough protective cushioning.

When moving, the corners of framed artwork and mirrors are particularly vulnerable to scratches and nicks. For this reason, it’s important to surround these parts with corner protectors, such as styrofoam corner protectors or cardboard corner protectors.


If you feel that the item needs extra protection, it won’t hurt to wrap a moving blanket around it as well.


Moving Antiques


Household antiques can range from perfectly crafted porcelain plates to inherited mahogany furniture.  Antiques are often extremely valuable and irreplaceable to their owners for not only financial reasons, but emotional reasons as well. For these reasons, it is very important to handle and move these items with the utmost care. While we strongly advise hiring professional Mechanicsville VA movers for the job, we know that this may not be an option for everyone. Quick summary:  While moving antiques be sure to take note of your inventory, collect all of your packing supplies, call friends and family over to help with heavy items, disassemble large items, install wooden crates for large fragile items that won’t disassemble, and apply moving pads once the items arrive on the truck.
