How to move your antique furniture the right way when relocating  

Antique Furniture? When you know you have something of high value or very important to you, you fear that it may be damaged in the process of your move. This is a valid concern, antique furniture require extra care and maintenance care. Stressing this to your full-service moving company is crucial! I would suggest that before you agree on hiring a specific moving company, you ask if they have experience in moving antique furniture.

Below are some suggestions on ways you can save your antique furniture during a home move, no matter if you are moving from Portland Oregon to CA (out of state) or within Portland (locally)

  • Padding: before moving any furniture piece, be sure it is wrapped very well. I recommend bubble wrap and then moving blankets. If in case it gets bumped on a wall during the move, there will be padding to help with avoiding damage to the furniture.
  • Large antique furniture piece: On large pieces that are antique, I would have a 4 strong, experience movers or moving labor help assistance with moving the furniture.
  • No need to hurry – it’s funny how the story of the rabbit and the turtle comes to mind when I talk about his step. Making sure the movers are slow and steady moving the item is very important.
  • Storing your antiques in storage. When storing your antiques in storage, we highly suggest a climate controlled storage facility.
