Tips for Moving Your Collectibles from Your Winnipeg Long-Distance Movers

When it comes to moving across the country, keeping your valuable items safe and secure is one of the most important things to do. At Winnipeg Moving, our goal is to do exactly that. As professional residential movers in Winnipeg, we know what it takes to get all your belongings into your new home without a hitch.

Our long-distance movers have over 35 years of experience under our belt, so we understand the ins and outs of cross-country moves. Before we even start planning your move, we’re here to give you some advice about how to move any and all fragile items safely and securely.

Let’s dive in! Small Items: Secure Packaging

When it comes to moving smaller items, there are plenty of different supplies that can be used to provide additional protection, including packing paper, peanuts, bubble roll, and cardboard boxes with dividers. This is key when packing things like fine china, luxury handbags, vintage instruments, figurines, and more.

When packing smaller things like this, be careful when using tape so that it doesn’t come in contact with any sensitive surfaces on the items themselves. In fact, you may want to utilize a professional moving company’s packing and unpacking services to avoid any extra stress.

Large Items: Moving Blankets and Custom Crating

For larger items, it’s important to have movers on your side you can trust. Many professional moving teams use blankets for extra protection during the move and stretch wrapping for doorways and furniture, so nothing gets scuffed or scratched. At Winnipeg Moving, we’ll also provide wood crating services that are custom made to each item to ensure minimal movement during transports All About Protection Plans

By law, all moving companies provide free basic valuation coverage that provides damage reimbursement based on an items weight. This is called Released Value Protection. However, many collectibles are very light and still extremely valuable.

If that is the case for the items you are planning to relocate, consider asking your moving provider about their Full Value Protection options. It’s also a good idea to transport smaller items yourself, so you don’t have to worry about coverage at all. These items include jewelry, coins, stamps, and card collections.

Know Your Warehouse Storage Options

Sometimes, moves don’t happen exactly according to plan. When that happens, it’s important to have a moving team on your side that you can trust to hold on to your belongings before, during, and after your move. At Winnipeg Moving, we provide secure warehouse storage, so you can keep your items safe for as long as you need.

We’ll place all your collectibles in wooden vaults for added safety. Plus, our storage spaces have climate controlled capabilities in order to keep any temperature-sensitive belongings in peak condition.Get in Touch with Our Local Winnipeg MoversAs your trusted residential movers in Winnipeg, you can count on Winnipeg Moving to be by your side to get you and your belongings from point A to point B with ease.
