As a full-service moving company, TDY Moving and Storage has many specialties. One of them being NYC movers that are experts at transporting antiques and fine art collectables.
Antique and fine art moving is similar in some ways to our residential and commercial moving services. You’ll get all of the following when you choose us to handle your fine art or antique items:
These reasons alone are enough to make most people stop in their tracks and pick up the phone. After all, a dependable moving company that is reasonably priced doesn’t come along every day. The professionalism you will experience with us is second to none.
However, these things aren’t all you have to consider when you need priceless works of art moved. You also have to choose a company that has experience in this type of moving and one that knows the importance of keeping irreplaceable items in perfect condition.
We are well aware that there are still pieces of art in private collections that are valued at well over $200 million. We also know that a painting that has been in your family for generations may not have as much monetary value, but it may be quite important to you nonetheless. For that reason alone, we treat every single piece of art with the same amount of respect and care.
We are one of the few NYC movers who specialize in the transportation (and safe delivery) of fine art and antiques.
You may be concerned that we won’t be interested in bringing you on as a valued customer since you only have one or two pieces, not a museum-sized collection. That certainly isn’t the case! We will work with you whether you have one painting or a dozen – or more! We believe that the size of the collection doesn’t overshadow the value of each and every piece.
If you’ve ever caught an episode of Antiques Roadshow (or even a clip of it), you probably know that the oddest things can be considered antiques. The technical definition of an antique is something that is over 100 years old and shows some sort of craftsmanship in its creation. This is a rather broad definition, and, therefore, it can apply to many different items.
There’s no possible way we could cover every type of antique that we can move, but we thought we’d go into a little detail about a few of them, just to show you the attention to detail that goes into moving each one.
‘Fine art’ has expanded over the years to include many different media. No matter how mankind chooses to express itself, it won’t be long before someone falls in love with it and calls it art. As an expert NYC moving company, we are experienced and professional when it comes to moving your fine art.
As we said earlier, we’ve only scratched the surface of the different types of antiques and fine art pieces there are. Antique furniture, for example, was not covered above, but it is often one of the items routinely included in a residential or commercial move. For these items, we know how to protect them from scratches and dents and from getting broken pieces like casters and arms.
If any items calls for additional wrapping and cushioning, we will make sure to do these things before beginning your move.
We didn’t intend to give an itemized list of all our antique and fine art moving services, but we simply want to give you a big-picture view of how detailed our services can be. You will find NYC movers that promise to haul your antique items, but few will guarantee the items will arrive safely and in one piece!
Don’t trust your priceless fine art to just anyone. Only our fine staff will take care of your valuables as if they are our own. We are committed to moving your antique items safely, and we also want them to arrive quickly, but we will gladly sacrifice a little extra time to ensure that your items do not get damaged!
