The Most Advanced Materials and Methods For Antique Moving

JP Urban Moving invests in high quality materials and failproof methods so that your valuables are properly protected during every stage of the relocation process. As a result, we have earned the trust of some of the most discerning collectors and institutions in the city and country. To guarantee that your cherished possessions arrive at their new home in pristine condition, we use the following materials for art and antique moving:

  • Glassine Paper

Glassine Paper is a type of acid-free paper that’s often used to wrap collectibles and other delicate items. Glassine Paper helps protect the surface of your antiques from scratches and other damage.

  • Corner Protectors

To prevent damage to your antiques and/or your walls, we put cardboard and foam onto the corners of your furniture to cushion them against potential impact.

  • Picture Boxes or Telescoping Boxes (Cardboard)

We use sturdy cardboard boxes that are specifically designed for moving pictures and paintings. They’re a great way to keep your artwork safe during a move.

  • Padded Moving Blankets

When moving antiques, we use padded moving blankets to wrap and protect large pieces of furniture from scratches or bumps. We also use moving blankets as an additional barrier to protect your walls and floors.

  • Wooden Crates

To keep antiques and other fragile items safe during a move, we craft custom wooden crates to act as a protective shell. These crates are built according to the exact dimensions of any piece of furniture or art.

  • Furniture Dollies

Last, but not least, we use sturdy and stable furniture dollies to move heavy pieces of furniture without damaging the floor.

COI (Certificate of Insurance)

If you’re moving in or out of an apartment building, your building may require your moving company to submit a Certificate of Insurance (COI) before the movers can even step inside it.

COI legacy protects buildings in case of any damages. Often, a building’s management team may require documentation and proof of insurance to ensure moving company is properly covered.

The COI is included in our rates and all you have to do is send us a sample/COI request from the building’s management.
