Planning Tips for Working with Specialty Movers

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Specialty Movers


There are several reasons that individuals and businesses hire specialty movers. As one, we take a great deal of care when working with our clients to develop a plan to move their most precious possessions. When it comes to specialty and expensive objects, a plan must be created to ensure that they arrive at their destination safely. It is not enough to simply show up on moving day and put things in boxes. Instead, by creating a plan, we ensure that everything is in place so that your most precious items get where they need to go without incident or worry. After all, we understand that with your most precious possessions, that means far more to you than their actual worth. We understand that their value is intrinsic and this makes it critical that they arrive in perfect condition.

Create a Plan Prior to Moving

When hired, we will work with you to create a comprehensive plan to ensure that your specialty or high-value items are moved according to your wishes. Here are some things to consider:

  • Are the objects insured? While we take the best care to provide for their safety, it is still wise to have your most valuable possessions insurance
  • How fragile are they? It is necessary for us to provide the right type of packing materials to ensure their complete safety. If you have specific requests or things that we should know, that will give us an idea of what we can do ahead of time
  • Does this item need to be moved with security? If you are moving something that is incredibly expensive, you may want to do it with the help of security. In this case, we can have a security team work with our specialty movers to ensure that nothing happens along the journey. This tends to be more common in situations like moving family jewelry or high-value pieces of art
  •  Are there specific time frames involved with the move? When moving specialty objects that need to be coordinated with a gallery opening, a special event at a home or property, business plans etc. we have to time everything perfectly. If this is the case, we need to be aware so that we can ensure your specialty items are there when you need them
  •  Does anything need to occur so that the property is ready to receive your special items? Very often we are coordinating with household staff, assistants, etc. to ensure that everything is ready for the object to be set in place once it has arrived on site

Hiring Specialty Movers

Regardless of whether you need to move art, jewelry, furniture, or your most prized possessions, we have the team ready and available to assist you. As specialty movers, we can move virtually anything, large or small, with or without security. Do not hesitate to call us with your requests no matter how obscure they seem to be, and we will do our best to create a plan and accommodate you. Keep in mind that moving unique or specialty items can take some additional planning so the sooner you can call us the better.

Call Specialty Movers for Help With Your Estate

Specialty-Movers20164As specialty movers, we help people move their estate. A traditional moving company may do an excellent job packing up your clothes and belongings, but if you have rare antiques, a collection of fine art, or very breakable and fragile furniture, you need a moving company that understands how to treat your special items with care. We do because we understand how important they are to you. Some things cannot be replaced; you cannot buy them at Target if they become cracked or chipped in the move. We understand this and are diligent about taking the steps necessary to protect your belongings.

As specialty movers, we are often called to:

#1 - Pack up and move an estate after someone has passed.

When a parent or relative has died and had a variety of beautiful furnishings, paintings, antiques, or collectibles, those items will be disbursed to the heirs. They need to be carefully packed and shipped. Even if they are all going to one heir, they still need to be prepared to be moved. We can do this for you and by doing so, take off some of the pressure felt by the estate’s executor.

#2 - Move large estates when families are relocating or downsizing.

Whether you have recently build a grand family home or your children have left and you are moving to a penthouse in the city, we can be trusted to move all of your belongings. Our experienced team knows how to gently handle your furniture and your fine art and how to pack and protect it so nothing is nicked, scratched, or broken during the move. This level of high care includes wrapping everything so nothing is exposed. It also requires placing some objects into protected crates so no items are stacked on top of each other.

#3 - Delivery of rare or expensive objects.

As specialty movers, we can also assist you in collecting and transporting objects you have purchased. Some of our clients, for example, will call after purchasing new furniture from an auction house or buying a new art collection from a gallery in town. We can get your new belongings safely home so you can begin to display and enjoy them.

Why You Should Call Specialty Movers

If you are concerned about your belongings getting safely where they belong, you need a moving company that is experienced in how to transport fine art and furniture without damaging them in any way. As a moving company, we pride ourselves on the ability to do so and we have a system in place for ensuring that this happens. We know how to wrap and protect everything, how to store it for transportation, how to ensure that everything is tied down and secured so it cannot move in transit, etc. These are things we think about and plan ahead for, whereas a traditional mover may only be concerned with getting things from Destination A to Destination B.
