FAQs

How do you protect canvas paintings when moving in London?

Protecting canvas paintings when moving involves a meticulous process to ensure their safe shipping. We start by removing any dust from the canvas using a soft, dry brush. We then cover the painting with acid-free, archival tissue paper to prevent any scratches or damages. Then, we place it in a custom-made crate or a strong cardboard box, with additional padding provided by bubble wrap or foam. We also use corner protectors for added safety. To prevent movement during transfer, we fill any residual space in the box with packing peanuts. Finally, we seal the box securely and mark it as Fragile and This Way Up to ensure careful handling.  

How do you transport multiple paintings in London?

Transportation of multiple paintings requires logistics and strategic packing to ensure safety. At South Easter Removals, we utilise custom-made boxes that are built to accommodate multiple pieces. Each is individually wrapped in acid-free tissue paper, and then bubble-wrapped for added protection. We use foam dividers between each item to prevent them from coming into contact with each other, minimising the risk of damage. The box is filled with packing peanuts to prevent any movement during transfer, and each is secured to avoid shifting. Upon arrival at their destination, our professional team carefully unpacks each, inspecting them for any potential damage incurred during the move.
