Tips On How To Unpack Your Delicate Artwork Without Ruining Them

Safety Of Unpacking

What are the Tips On How To Unpack Your Delicate Artwork Without Ruining Them?

The process of moving to a new home gets complicated when delicate items are involved. Nevertheless, this should not get you worried since all you need to do is hire a qualified and experienced mover. They will pack and deliver your belongings to your destination safely. If you have delicate items such as artwork, it is important to inform your mover in advance so that they can get the necessary packing materials. One of the challenges that most people moving with delicate items have is how to ensure their safety when unpacking. This article is a comprehensive guide on how to unpack your delicate artwork without ruining them.

  • Sort out the artwork first: If you have several pieces of artwork, it is important to sort them out before you start the unpacking process. You can sort them systematically depending on how delicate each piece is, as well as the specific room where each one of them goes. Such a strategy ensures that you handle one piece of artwork at a time and in its specific location. This minimizes handling and movement of pieces. If you move all pieces to each and every room you need to go to, you risk damaging them.
  • Unwrap them slowly: Your artwork is most probably wrapped up in special material or items to protect it. It is important to be very careful when unpacking these pieces. Hold them firmly to ensure that it does not slip and fall.

  • Prepare where to place them beforehand: Moving to a new house is quite involving and in most cases, you might find it difficult to establish where to place each item. As you create your list of the things to do, ensure that the plan is clear. You need to establish where to place each of your artwork pieces. However, ensure that the area you choose will support the artwork well to avoid damaging them. Also ensure that the area will bring out the best aesthetic value of the artwork. Deciding this in advance reduces the chances of you artwork just lying around after unwrapping them thus reducing the possibility of damages.
  • Ask your mover to help you: Handling artwork can be challenging especially if you do not have the experience of unpacking such items. As such, it is advisable to seek help with the unpacking process. Your mover is the ideal choice in this case. The chances are high that they have participated in unpacking delicate artwork before.
  • Declutter the house: Considering how delicate the artwork is, any slight interference from other household items can cause damage to the pieces of artwork. Take some time to move aside any other items around that can make the unpacking process challenging.
Declutter The House

Artwork is one of the items that you need to be careful about when packing, moving, as well as unpacking. When your mover arrives with everything intact, much care is needed when unpacking them. However, clearing the path, unwrapping the art pieces slowly, sorting them, and getting help can greatly ensure the safety of your artwork as you unpack.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
