Fine arts moving is not like moving other items, as Oz treats these fine works with the utmost care and attention to detail. Oz knows our customers are price conscious, so we ensure the rates we offer these services at are affordable for New Yorkers. Meeting these goals has allowed us to become one of the best art moving companies NYC has within its borders.

Packing Art for Moving

The typical art movers NYC customers need are not the ones who handle only the finest, multi-thousand dollar art. Most of the art handled by Oz Moving is not as valuable as the finest works in a museum or gallery. Protecting common works of art still requires plenty of detail, but not as many expensive supplies that a customer has to pay for. The process starts with a plastic wrap called glassine that prevents the artwork itself from smudging, denting or scratching. Then, the piece is wrapped again in Bubble wrap to provide cushioning en transit. After wrapping the work a sufficient number of times, a suitable box is found to pack the art without too much empty space for it to move around. If the art piece shifts inside its box en transit, it could be damaged, so Oz is sure to make the box as tight a fit as possible with the wrapped artwork. Packing paper can be used to close any spaces.

You guys know how hard it can be in NYC to find people who do a good job for a fair price...but that's what Oz does. We had a couple of extremely fragile/awkward art pieces, and they handled them like newborn babies.

Specialty Art

Especially large or valuable works of art deserve special attention, and Oz can provide that. For the bigger pieces we encounter, Oz’s fine art movers typically custom construct a box or other packing container to fit them. Customized boxes allow for Oz to create the exact amount of insulation necessary on each piece of art without leaving too much room for the piece to shift en transit and be damaged.

For especially high value works, Oz is happy to provide custom crating. Wood crating is the safest way to transport an inventory to prevent it from incurring damage. Typically, this method is the same used by the most highly qualified fine art movers in the world who handle the types of pieces seen in the globe’s most famous art museums.  Oz’s carpentry team will engineer a box designed to perfectly fit the artwork and transport it safely to its destination.
