Things to keep in mind before hiring fine art movers in NYC

When considering the services of fine art movers, it’s essential to keep several crucial factors in mind.

Here’s what you should consider:

  • Environmental Factors: Delicate pieces of fine art can be sensitive to temperature and humidity changes. In the heat of summer, there’s a heightened risk of artwork melting or warping. To eliminate this risk, consider moving artwork during the colder months so you can provide a safeguard against potential damage.
  • Transportation Method: The choice of transportation method is pivotal, especially for high-value art pieces. Before making a decision,  one should ensure that artworks will remain in a controlled environment throughout the journey, with effectively minimized risks associated with temperature changes.
  • Strategic Timing: Many seasoned art fanatics strategically plan the relocation process during colder months precisely due to these reasons.  Another reason has to be the fact that transportation requirements for moving an art piece in warmer months can be very expensive due to the extra effort the movers have to put into their work.

Fine art moving is an art in itself

Handling art isn’t just a duty for us; it’s a passionate dance of precision and care. At Dorothy & Martha NYC, every brushstroke, every hue, and every emotion embedded in an artwork is revered.

In the vibrant tapestry of art, even the smallest misstep can alter its essence. But with Dorothy & Martha, every artwork is cradled in experienced hands that understand its distinct rhythm and pulse.

Making spaces suitable for fine art preservation

Preparing a newly purchased space for incoming fine art requires careful planning and attention to detail to ensure that your artworks are displayed and preserved in the best possible environment. Here’s a guide to help you prepare your space:

  • Thoroughly Evaluate the Space: Take a look at your new space to determine the best locations for displaying and preserving your art pieces. Consider factors such as lighting, wall space, and room layout.
  • Climate Control: Ensure that the space has proper climate control to protect your artworks from temperature and humidity fluctuations. Fine art is extremely sensitive to environmental changes.
  • Lighting: Illuminate your artwork just right. We recommend UV-filtered lights that not only showcase your pieces but also ensure they remain fade-resistant and unharmed
  • Wall Preparation:  Before your art claims its space, ensure the wall’s integrity with any needed touch-ups. Opt for hues that complement and elevate your artwork’s brilliance
  • Hanging: Employ the right fixtures to guarantee your art’s secure and optimal placement on the wall.
  • Protective Measures: Use rubber bumpers behind frames to prevent damage to both the artwork and the walls. Install glass glazing to protect delicate pieces.
  • Fire and Safety Precautions: Make sure that the space is equipped with smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. Avoid placing art near potential fire hazards.
  • Regular Maintenance: Set a schedule for regular cleaning and maintenance to keep the artworks in satisfactory condition.
