Renovating your home can be stressful, and while the end result is certainly worthwhile, it can be an inconvenience particularly if it’s a major renovation. Protecting your furniture, valuable items and artwork can be a major concern while workers are in your home. There is risk of damage or, in the worst case scenario, theft, that could occur. If your renovation is going to take longer than a few weeks, finding an artwork mover in Los Angeles may be an ideal solution. These movers can move and store your artwork and other valuable items while your home is being renovated.

If the renovations are not extensive, or won’t take an extended period of time, there are some measures that you can take to protect your belongings:

  • Leave them hanging on the wall and cover them with plastic or a drop cloth

  • Take them down or out of the room, wrap them in plastic and place them in another room in your home, where it won’t be disturbed

If the renovations are extensive, you’ll want to hire a moving company that specializes in artwork and other valuables. Before hiring just any company to move and store your artwork, though, some due diligence is needed on your part to ensure all of your items are in good hands. Check to make sure the company has the following:

  • An established reputation within the community

  • White glove service to ensure the utmost quality

  • Crating and storage services

  • Services for both artwork and other valuable items like antiques, glass, etc. if you have other valuables that need to be taken care of

  • 24/7 state-of-the-art security systems to ensure your valuables are safe and secure at all times

An artwork mover in Los Angeles can help you move your valuable items out of your home, and back in when the renovations are complete. Visit Art Pack.
