Whether you're an art enthusiast, a collector, or a professional in the industry, understanding the importance of proper storage and moving is crucial in preserving the beauty and value of your precious treasures.

When it comes to moving artwork, art storage, and antique protection, portable storage solutions have become increasingly popular. These innovative options provide a convenient and secure way to transport your valuable pieces without compromising their integrity. One of the major advantages is the convenience it provides. These secure portable storage containers can be delivered right to your doorstep, eliminating the need for multiple trips to a traditional storage facility.

Why Portable Storage is the Perfect Solution for Moving or Storing Art and Antiques

With portable container storage, you don’t need to entrust a stranger to pack and care for your works of art - it’s all in your hands! We deliver the container to your desired address on a day that works for you. You don’t even need to be present for the delivery of your container. Just make sure we have enough space and you’ll arrive home to a container ready and waiting for your precious goods.

You have the flexibility to pack up your belongings at your own convenience and then simply reach out to us when you're ready. Then we’ll do the rest. With our portable storage moving services, you can rest assured that your artwork or antiques will be handled with the utmost care during transit.

Are you moving directly from one location to another?

If you’re moving right into your new home or business we can move the portable storage container directly to your new location. This means that once the container is loaded, it can be transported directly to your destination without any unnecessary stops or transfers. This saves you time and energy by eliminating the need to unload and reload your items multiple times during the moving process.

This also gives you complete control over your timeline. You can take all the time you need to carefully unload your belongings at your own pace, without having to rush or worry about strict deadlines. This flexibility is particularly beneficial for those who prefer a more organized and methodical approach to unpacking.

Are you moving but need storage in between locations?

Sometimes schedules don’t line up just right and you may need storage for a time in between pick up and drop off. Our team will pick up your fully packed portable storage container and carefully transport it to our highly secure storage facility. We’ll store it for you until you schedule a delivery date. You can also have easy access to your container at the facility by making an appointment through the office, with a minimum of 72 hours' notice. Say goodbye to the stress of finding temporary storage - let us take care of it for you!

Looking for storage only?

Maybe you’re not packing up for a big move but instead looking to store your valuable items during a renovation or large event. These containers offer a secure and flexible way to store your belongings without the hassle of traditional self-storage units. When you’re ready we will pick up your portable storage container and take it to our highly secure storage facility. Once you’re ready to have your precious goods back in your home or business we will deliver them back to you at your convenience.

But that's not all! Portable storage also ensures the utmost protection for your art and antiques. These containers are designed with security in mind and are equipped with sturdy locks.

Preserving the beauty and value of your art is crucial, and portable storage understands that. With its controlled environment, you can rest easy knowing that your artwork will be shielded from harmful elements such as sunlight, water, and pests. All of our storage rental containers are designed to be watertight and weatherproof.

When it comes to protecting your collection, portable storage truly shines. Its spacious interiors allow for careful organization and proper handling of delicate items. You can say goodbye to accidental bumps or breakages during transportation!

Choosing the Right Portable Storage Unit for Your Art and Antiques

When it comes to choosing the right portable storage unit for your art and antiques one of the first decisions you will need to make is the size of the portable storage container that best suits your needs.

Our portable storage containers come in three lengths - 12 feet, 16 feet, and 20 feet. The size you choose will depend on the quantity and dimensions of your art and antiques, as well as if you want to store anything else at the same time. It's important to carefully assess your storage requirements to ensure that you select a unit that offers enough space for your valuable items.

Tips for Safely Packing and Moving Your Artwork and Antiques

When it comes to packing and moving your valuable artwork and antiques, taking the necessary precautions is crucial to ensure their safety. Proper organization, suitable packing materials, and secure packaging techniques are all essential elements in this process.

To start, organizing your portable storage container is key. Make sure you have enough space to accommodate your artwork and antiques without overcrowding them. This will help prevent any accidental damage during transit.

When it comes to packing fragile items, such as delicate sculptures or paintings, using the right materials is vital. Bubble wrap, foam padding, and specialized art boxes are excellent choices for providing cushioning and protection. Additionally, consider using acid-free tissue paper or archival sleeves for added preservation.

Labelling your artwork during transit is essential for easy identification and careful handling. Clearly mark each box with its contents and indicate which side should be kept upright to prevent any accidental mishandling.

Lastly, we recommend securing your carefully packaged items inside the portable storage unit using straps and soft materials like blankets. We recommend packing heavier items closer to the floor of the unit with lighter items above. Try to avoid leaving too much space between items - the tighter you can pack your items the more secure they will be.

By following these tips for safely packing and moving your artwork and antiques, you can minimize the risk of damage during transit while ensuring their preservation for years to come.
