What Moves Us?
Exceeding Your Expectations!
+1 (972) 805-0988
Antiques are notorious for springing new life into whatever room they’re placed in. They’re known for adding personality, character, and a certain uniqueness that you just can’t find from a big-box store or the latest designer trend. At Element Moving and Storage, LLC, we understand these particular items require very special care; after all, if one of them breaks, you can’t really run out and buy a new one. Some popular antique items include:
- Uncommonly found sterling silver items
- Detailed, decorated porcelain
- Export jewelry
- Mid-century, modern-for-its-time collectibles
- Sunburst clocks
The list absolutely goes on. Any moving job that involves a number of antique items can be challenging, and we’ve (painfully) seen countless fly-by-night competitors fail to meet that challenge. Element Moving and Storage, LLC, the next generation in moving and storage, is different: unlike our competitors we offer unheard of services and add special touches to preserve the safety, security, and value of every piece we work with. Here’s how we do it:
Antiques comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some are sturdy enough where the primary duty of the mover is to keep them in place or reduce the amount of moving and shifting that might occur during the transport. Others are more delicate–we take each item on a case-by-case basis. If the antique is particularly vulnerable, we’ll securely wrap it and ensure it doesn’t come into contact with other items on the move that could stress or damage it. Some of our professional-grade materials include:
- Double- and triple-walled cartons
- Stretch wrap and cushioning wrap
- Packing tape
- Fine tissue and Kraft paper
Other items may require an extra layer of protection; however, if you wrap them too tightly, you could end up damaging them before you roll off the lot. Our movers are trained at spotting “soft” spots and responding with the appropriate care, and are especially trained in transporting:
- Fragile porcelains
- Family heirlooms
- Valuable antiques
We treat every item with the finest professional care, and understand that moving art, antiques, and collectibles takes extra care; no one values that more than Element Moving and Storage, LLC and our highly-trained staff.
There is a vast number of antiques either crafted by hand, or on now-outdated machinery (after all, that’s what makes it priceless!). However, as a result of this, they end up not being designed for the same level of wear-and-tear that a similarly-crafted item made with today’s technology could be. In such cases, we use our utmost discretion—defined by decades of professional moving experience and collective expertise—to make the best use of space when transporting your irreplaceable, delicate belongings to ensure absolute predictability. If adjustments need to be made, we will swiftly navigate all possible options to ensure every single item, whether small or large, is wholly secured for safe, zero-damage transport.
Furthermore, if your antiques cannot have any other item stacked on top of them, we’ll use our experience to take that into consideration and adjust the whole process in order to expertly rearrange and continue transporting the load. If necessary, we’ll “float”—or make however many trips we need—to ensure everything arrives at its destination in identically mint condition.
All in all, our goal as your professional mover is to apply our vast knowledge and expertise in every aspect of your move, whether comprised of items bulky, delicately irreplaceable, or both, to ensure efficient, predictable transport and unparalleled results.
White Label Service
Last but not least, Element Moving and Storage, LLC offers white label service for everything we move.
