If you have a large collection of paintings which need to be packed and placed into to storage, you may be wondering about the best way to pack, transport and store these items. Below is a guide to 4 benefits of using a storage company which also offers a removal service.
Taking many pictures down from the wall in your home and preparing them for storage and be a very time-consuming job. By hiring a team of removalist, you can boost the manpower which is available and speed up the job so you can get on with your life.
The removals team from your local storage unit will have expert knowledge on how to prepare and pack paintings for long-term storage. If you fail to pack your paintings properly, they may become damaged while they are in storage. For example, if you encase a painting in sheets of plastic, the canvas will not be able to breathe and any moisture trapped inside will aid the formation of mould and mildew. The removals team will use thick, soft sheeting in order to protect your paintings from damage while still allowing air to circulate.
Paintings can be very large things, which means that you may not be able to fit them into your car or a self-drive hire van. Even if you do manage to get your paintings into one of your own vehicles, because they will not be secured, it is possible that they will be damaged during transit. However, when you hire a removal team from your local self-storage unit, they will come equipped with a large van which is large enough to comfortably accommodate all of your paintings. The van will also be fitted with special racks which will allow the paintings to be secured in place during their journey to the storage unit.
Professional storage units feature state-of-the-art security technology which means you can be certain that your valuable artwork is kept safe and sound. Modern storage units also contain climate control features which will ensure that the moisture and temperature levels within the unit are kept at a safe limit.
