Fragile and delicate items, such as artwork, glassware or antiques, have high monetary and sentimental value. These items are best moved by a fragile goods courier service. Properly packing delicate items is the most important step to prevent damage during transport.
For items such as glassware every piece should be carefully wrapped to prevent damage. When packing artwork it is easy to construct a box yourself and materials are easy to acquire. You can purchase a special box for moving artwork although it can be costly.
When moving antique furniture proper preparation is as important as choosing the right special care removalist. Allow yourself plenty of time to package the items prior to transport, and be clear when communicating special handling needs and requirements to your transporter.
Some items like pianos or pool tables require professional movers with specialised skills. Very heavy items like Pianos and pool tables can be damaged if they are not moved properly and advice to or from your chosen carrier on how shipment will take place is recommended.
For transport of an antique, classic car or motorcycle it is highly recommended to work with enclosed car transporters to ensure your vehicle is not damaged in transport.
