Navigating Art Collection Relocation with Expertise and Care

Relocating an art collection, whether it’s a move across town or across the country, is a task that comes with its unique set of challenges. At Manzi Appraisers & Restoration, we understand the complexities involved in such a process. Over our 20 years of serving the New England area, we have honed our skills in managing the intricacies of art collection relocation, ensuring each piece’s safety and integrity from start to finish.

Understanding the Sensitivity of Artworks

Artworks, whether they are paintings, sculptures, rare books, or antique furnishings, require more than just careful packing and transport. Each piece has its own story, material composition, and emotional value. Handling these items requires not only physical care but also an understanding of their historical and artistic significance. This is where our expertise at Manzi Appraisers & Restoration comes into play. We approach each relocation project with a deep respect for the art and its history.

Customized Packing and Transportation Plans

No two art collections are the same, and neither are their relocation needs. We create customized packing and transportation plans for each collection, considering factors such as the size, medium, age, and fragility of each item. Our team uses specialized packing materials and techniques to ensure maximum protection. For transportation, we coordinate with trusted carriers who have experience in handling valuable artworks, providing climate-controlled and secure transport options.

Minimizing Risks During Transit

The risk of damage during transit is a significant concern in art relocation. To mitigate these risks, our team conducts thorough pre-move assessments. We document the condition of each item before the move and use this information to inform our packing and handling strategies. Throughout the transit, we maintain close communication with the transport team, ensuring that the artworks are monitored and secure.

Installation and Post-Move Care

Upon arrival at the new location, our services extend beyond unpacking. We assist in the installation of artworks, offering expert advice on placement to enhance their display and preserve their condition. Our post-move care also includes condition reporting and recommendations for ongoing preservation and maintenance.

Collaboration with Art Professionals

For larger or more complex relocations, we often collaborate with art professionals, including conservators, curators, and interior designers. This collaboration ensures that every aspect of the move is handled with the utmost professionalism and care, maintaining the integrity of each piece in the collection.
