How to move antiques when relocating

When preparing for a home relocation, it is crucial to give special attention to valuable antiques so that they can be transported safely and without damage.

Fragile antiques made from materials such as glass or china require specialized packing techniques involving either wooden crates or specially designed boxes with poly chips or other protective materials. Objects made from precious metals such as gold and silver may be more robust, but they still need protection that prevents scratches.

Antique furniture should be wrapped fully with blankets or cushioning materials, and larger items may need to be crated in order to ensure stability during transportation.

For valuable paintings, a crate provides the best protection against potential damage caused by falls or jostling during transport.

Books should also be packed into boxes filled with padding material in order to prevent them from shifting around.
