Antique Moving Tips
To make your antique move go off as smoothly as possible for you, follow these tips before, and during your next move with antiques in Northern Virginia. Here’s how you can prepare your antique furniture for moving:
- Have Your Antiques Appraised by A Professional: You should consider getting your antiques appraised by a reputable appraisal house. Be sure to look out for the “American Society of Appraisers” badge, which indicates the highest of quality for an appraiser. You can also request a state by state referral list from the Directory of Certified Professional Personal Property Appraisers to P.O. Box 17625, Washington D.C. 20041. They can also be contacted by phone at (800) 272-8258.
- Inventory Your Antiques Before Moving: Making a comprehensive list of all of your antiques with their values, separate from your other belongings, will be important for your peace of mind. Having a list that you can quickly reference while movers are unloading your valuables will make it easy to ensure that each item made it to its new home safely.
- Bring Small and Sensitive Items Separately: If you have sentimental photos, fine or costume jewelry, important papers or other irreplaceable baubles, Manassas Transfer recommends the best thing you can do to ensure their safety is to pack them in the car. Boxes and trucks can pose a threat to climate-sensitive photos and papers, so these things are best taken along in your car on your local or interstate move.
