Process of Fine Art Relocation Services
Our packers and movers have years of experience relocating fine art, expensive paintings, and antiques using specialised techniques for their safe shifting.
- Pre-move survey
A pre-move survey is performed by our movers to look at the fine art pieces, make a note of inventory, and plan the relocation accordingly. After preparing an inventory list, our movers discuss your shifting requirements and provide accurate price estimates.
The valuables are packed securely using multi-layer packing, custom-made packing crates, and quality packing materials like bubble wrap, packing peanuts, plastic wrap, corrugated sheets, robust cardboard boxes, etc., ensuring no hairline scratches on them.
They use the latest tools and handling equipment like moving dollies, customised panels, straps, blankets, sliders, hand trucks, moving straps and ropes, etc., to securely load the packed items onto suitable moving carriers.
Our movers select a suitable moving truck based on the number of fine art items you have. The experienced truck drivers determine the best route to deliver your fine arts safely and on time to your doorstep.
The goods are carefully unloaded to your new location using suitable handling equipment and tools such as tailored panels, moving dollies, straps, blankets, hand trucks, etc.
Take Note: If you require unpacking services, inform the moving company in advance during the pre-move survey, as this service can incur additional charges. You can also check the products for damage and seek reimbursement, if any.
Our movers provide tailor-made and insured storage spaces to match your fine art storage requirements, with climate control facilities, monitoring systems, controlled access, and round-the-clock security to keep your valuables secure.
Our professional moving companies offer insurance coverage to ensure the complete safety of your fine arts from start to finish of the moving process. In the event of any damage during the move, you can easily claim compensation.

Preparation Tips for Shifting Fine Art
- Use gloves to pack and transport fine art. Touching paintings with your bare hands can cause discolouration and damage.
- Tape glass with an X to protect the artwork and your mover's hands if glass breaks during transit.
- Use acid-free paper or glassine that is air, water, and grease resistant to protect the paintings.
- Placing cardboard sheets on both sides of the painting acts as padding and helps to absorb any bumps or shocks along the way.
- Cover the artwork with cardboard corners to protect parts of the artwork that take the brunt of any bumps.
- Wrap the artwork with bubble wraps to offer an extra layer of absorbent protection and cushioning.
- Fill the gaps in the moving box with fillers as padding to ensure your artwork is no longer moving.
- Label all the packed boxes with owner's name, package number, contents, etc., for easy identification.
- Boxes should never be piled on top of one other.
