What story does your antique furniture tell? Maybe it recounts days spent at grandma’s house and the smell of freshly baked goodies. Maybe there are sad stories of tragedy and loss or encouraging stories of love and celebration. Whatever the case might be for you, these nostalgic mementos of the past should be preserved. 

Are you concerned that moving will damage your antique furniture?

As an experienced St. Louis moving company, A. Frisella Moving & Storage provides the key to safe antique furniture relocation:

Protect Wooden Furniture with Moving Blankets

Heavy furniture can be placed onto moving blankets and carefully moved across the floor and out of the house. This makes your job easier and protects your furniture and floor from scuffing. Furniture pads are also used to cover the furniture during transit to prevent damage from impacts and shifting. If you’re moving a desk, bureau, or credenza, furniture pads are a must-have. 

Seal Out Moisture and Dirt with Plastic Wrap

Upholstered items like sofas and chairs are prone to damage from moisture and dirt during relocation, but quality plastic wrap offers necessary protection. Plastic wrap is also used to keep furniture doors and drawers closed during transit, such as those found in a china cabinet or armoire. In many cases, plastic wrap is used in tandem with moving blankets, but this is not always necessary. 

Move Bulky and Fragile Items with Custom Crating 

Custom crates are made to fit the exact shape and size of the item that is being moved. This prevents shifting during transit and offers a protective barrier that resists damage from impacts and abrasions.
