And that’s because valuable and expensive items need major TLC when relocating to a new home. And for local, long distance and international movers, it’s easy to get caught up in the buzz of moving.

One thing’s for sure, it’s not an easy job safely packing and moving items like these.

They especially need to make sure these items are properly packed and handled.
To make things easier on you, here are several ideas for successfully transporting these delicate goods.
Hire a Professional Moving Company
To pack and move your piano and fine art, we recommend hiring an experienced moving company. Moving companies usually provide insurance to keep you protected in the event of an accident.

Air1 Moving and Storage, for example, offers piano moving services and climate-controlled units to safely store your piano and fine art.
The best way to move and pack your piano and fine art is to leave it for the pros. Trained piano movers understand moving these specialty items is an art in itself!

Local, Long Distance, and International Movers need to plan every step of the move, especially when packing and moving a piano or fine artwork. Begin your research and planning process as early as possible. Determine the material, dimensions, and weight of your keepsakes. Having this information early on will help you find the best moving company for your needs. It can also give you an idea of the approximate moving and shipping cost.
Packing and Moving Your Piano
Moving a piano is a strenuous job. Doing it right requires strategy, experience and preparation. So naturally, getting professional movers involved is highly suggested.
A big part of a mover’s job is doing the heavy lifting while you focus on settling into your new home. This includes all the tedious parts as well.
For example, at Air1 Moving and Storage, we make sure to lock the keyboard lid, evenly distribute weight, and never let tape touch a wooden surface. And we also carefully protect and wrap the piano before it ever leaves your home. This is done by securing it in place using dollies with padded straps. So regardless of the size of your piano, moving companies have the tools and the crew you need to safely relocate your specialty items.
To summarize, with a professional moving company you’ll get:
Transportation: Piano movers provide all the appropriate equipment and supplies needed to move your piano. Typically, they transport your piano from the pickup location to their trucks with a heavy-load bearing furniture dolly padded with straps.
Handling: Piano movers invest time and care into handling your piano. From making sure to lock the keyboard lid, to evenly distribute weight, and making sure to never let tape touch a wooden surface.
Protection: It’s crucial to protect the piano keys and pedals. Piano movers carefully cushion and wrap the piano before it ever leaves your home. We secure your piano using dollies with padded straps.
Packing and Moving Your Fine Art
It’s tricky packing and moving high-quality artwork. But if you hire a reliable moving company, you can be assured your art will be safely packed and transported with care. Plus, this makes moving fine art a generally straightforward process.
Whether you’re moving chandeliers, paintings, mirrors, tapestries or other wall hanging décor, a moving company makes it easy. From securely packing your keepsakes and, depending on the crew, even mounting your artwork in your new home. So instead of experimenting with YouTube DIY videos, opt for a moving company’s professional installment services to place your artwork securely. We always prioritize your safety, and take care of every detail to ensure nothing is scuffed!
Artwork moves and installation should be done by trusted moving professionals. After all, these are pros in handling artwork with training and experience.
Range of art items: Whether you’re moving chandeliers, paintings, mirrors, tapestries or other wall hanging décor, a professional moving crew can transport and install your artwork for you.
Precise Placement: For specialty artwork pieces, those DIY YouTube videos aren’t the best. Installation systems from the pros are usually the way to go — especially for your protection in the event of an earthquake or accident.
Safety first: Moving companies prioritize your safety, and take care of every detail to ensure nothing is scuffed!
