The Best Way To Pack and Relocate to London With Your Valuable Antiques

posted: 12th November 2018

Packing antiques for a London home relocationThere are many things that you need to keep in mind when you are preparing to pack and move your household to a new location. It is not an easy process, and a lot of things can go wrong. If your fragile glasses or antique vases are not packed properly, one sudden hit of the brakes in a London conjunction can cost you a great amount of money. We understand the concerns of everyone who is faced with the tuff job to pack and at the same time protect their valuables during house relocations. Just on such occasions, we have gathered a short list of professional moving tips. Follow them and you will have a less stressful and significantly cheaper home move.

Preparation Is the Key to Success

The first step as in every ordinary home relocation is the proper preparation. When moving with valuable antiques you need to:

  • Get your antiques appraised. When hiring a professional to assess your antiques you can rest assured that you will receive a valid verification of the item’s condition and value. This will greatly help you with all of the documentation concerning the antiques’ insurance.
  • Time to sell or donate. Selling some of your items is a great way to declutter your home before the move and earn some extra money. If you can’t sell then perhaps consider donating the pieces you no longer need or like.
  • Finding the right moving company. Thankfully London is filled with house movers. Your job is to find the right company for your needs. Make sure to ask about their insurance options.
  • Make sure it can be transported. For safety reasons the moving companies in London have a list of items, they refuse to transport. These “black” lists can contain things like jewellery, stamp collections or antique weapons. Check with your moving coordinator if the company is willing to move your valuables without breaking any rules.

The Secret of the Proper Packing for a London Home Relocation

Packing materials for a London home moveThe second stage of the house moving is the packing. When dealing with valuable antiques and fragile collectables you need to be very careful and take your time with the packing procedure. Keep in mind that sometimes it is best to hire a professional to prepare your art pieces for the long transportation than doing it yourself.

  • Packing antique furniture is something very delicate and you must hire a reputable company to the job for you. They may need to construct spatial plywood crates to ensure the safe transportation of your belongings.
  • When choosing your packing materials you must avoid using newspapers or any inked paper. The ink may stain your valuables. Instead, use acid-free paper, its neutral ph will not corrode or stain the surface of your precious items.
  • Don’t use synthetic wrappers when packing wood furniture.
  • Tape or any labels mustn’t touch the surface of your antiques, especially if they are made from wood or glass.
  • Don’t be shy when using packing peanuts and bubble wrap. Your fragile pieces need good cushioning and protection.
  • Ask the London movers of your choice about ideas and advice on how to pack different items and what materials they recommend. It is always best to consult with the professionals when handling expensive and delicate pieces.

House moving insuranceChoose the Right Insurance

As we already said it is vital to have a good insurance provided by your moving company. This last step will save you a lot of headaches if done properly.

  • Always ask for multiple insurance options and be sure to choose the one with the biggest coverage.
  • Some pieces may need additional insurance like valuable paintings or ancient artefacts.
  • Just to be on the safe side, always read the small inscriptions on the bottom of the pages of the contract.
  • When signing the contract with your home removals make sure you have read the contract and you understand everything written in it.
