Moving Artwork

Moving artwork can prove to be tricky as well. Artwork must be moved with utmost attention and care. This is especially true for the pieces that are expensive, large or have sentimental value to you. When you are packing your artwork, make sure to use sufficient cushioning and packing material.

Pack artwork while keeping in mind where the value of artwork lies. Frame your artwork in bubble wrapping and keep it in crates for damage-free handling. Never use a newspaper for wrapping paintings because the ink gets transferred on the image. Label the box as delicate so that the movers handle it carefully.

Moving Plants

When moving plants, you should keep in mind that they are living creatures. So, you must take extra care to arrange them in advance. Take your house plants out of ceramic pots and move them in to a plastic pot a few weeks before your planned move. This will give your plants sufficient time to settle in the new planter. Don’t transport your house plants on the moving truck otherwise there can be plant fatalities.

Moving Aquariums

Aquariums are a big moving challenge, irrespective of their size. Don’t take the risk of leaving the fish in there. There are a couple of things that can be done to help your fish get safely to your new house. The best thing is to take them out and keep them in some temporary container with the remaining water. Remove majority of the water from your aquarium and leave some at the bottom to make sure the existing bacteria still remain. Try to keep the fish stable so that they can survive the move. For this, you must take the services of Edmonton moving company.
