Professional Climate Controlled Fine Art Storage Service

At the time of the estimate by the Abreu Moving Consultant, you will need to let our representative know if you will be moving fine art or other high-valued items. At Abreu Movers, we understand the high value of fine art and antiques - and special arrangements may be necessary to ensure that your collection will reach its destination safely. In addition, you will need to complete a high-value inventory form to assure that your art collection is not limited to minimal liability. The form will be provided by your moving sales representative.

Protecting Your Fine Art

Your mover should explain the protection plans from which you may choose. Most moving companies give basic valuation coverage per pound. However, full replacement protection is offered by most major moving companies. If you choose a Full Value coverage plan from another 3rd party site (or a similar plan from another mover) we recommend that you provide copies of the appraisal to your sales representative.

Packing & Crating Your Fine Art

Moving Crate & Boxes

Different kinds of art require different packing techniques. Our specialists always recommend wooden crating for most high-value artwork including paintings, sculptures, and statues. Crates should be custom-built for the size of the artwork to minimize jarring during the move. Oil paintings are the most delicate and need to be handled with extra care when moving. Prior to crating, the front of your oil painting should be covered in acid-free glassine paper, which will protect it from moisture and dust.

Once your art is crated, it is ready to be moved.

Oil paintings have a tendency to melt in the heat, so we recommend that you wait to move your paintings until cooler months. It's important that you know that the movers will not be liable if you ship your painting and it melts. Valuation coverage will not help in this case because the carrier is typically not responsible for climatic change.

We always recommend that you move your oil paintings in the fall or winter. If you have to move it in the summer, you can always store your art in a climate-controlled warehouse and move it at a later date. Another option is to move your art in a climate-controlled van, which can be expensive. You may also want to consider air freight if the first two options are not feasible.
