How to Pack & Move Expensive Décor, Art & Furniture | Stateside Movers

Tips on how to pack & move your valuable and fragile pieces. Protect art, décor pieces and other furniture during the move.

Do you have fragile furniture or knick knacks you would like to keep extra protected? Do you have expensive possessions that may risk breaking? Consider getting such items crated by a professional crating company. They normally arrive a day before you are expected to move, then they build a crate from scratch for the item it is needed for.

There are a multitude of ways to look for professional crating companies. Search engine terms such as "craters and freighters" or "professional crating" or "crating services" or "custom crating services" should do the trick. An example of how to do this process will be listed here. I will use Packing Service Inc. as an example company. First, the customer determines if the company has local branches in their area. After that, the customer will get in touch with the local branch and send pictures, weight, and measurements of the item in question. After that, the customer will input their current zip code and the new destination’s zip code. The company will then offer a flat-rate quote for the item.

The crate may be built on-site at the customer’s location, or the item is brought back to the company’s warehouse and crated there. These options may vary by company, so make sure to ask just in case. If the move may be international, make sure to specify that, as the wood will need to be heat-treated for international shipping. Prices may be evaluated based on how heavy, long or bulky the item is.

There are also a large number of different wooden crates available, such as electronic crates, art crates, antique crates, heavy machinery crates, and furniture crates, to name a few. Be sure to double-check that the company you are researching has an established reputation for quality. Also, double-check if the company is able to serve in your exact zip code. It is also a good idea to shop around for different professional crating companies, to determine who is offering you the best quote. If you are looking for a sturdy, added protection to your items, professional crating is a great way to make sure your belongings are safe throughout the entire journey.
