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.

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.

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.
