How To Pack & Store Your Artwork

From Picasso to Finger-Painting, 1-800-PACK-RAT has You Covered

We have a confession to make, 1-800-PACK-RAT fans. When it’s time to move, we’re picky about how we pack and store our artwork. You can’t find those velvet Elvis paintings just anywhere, you know.

Seriously, artwork can be a big investment, and you want to protect yours when you’re moving or putting it into storage. Art doesn’t even have to be expensive to be valuable. Just think about your children’s baby pictures, the paintings your kids made in school, or the souvenir watercolor you bought to remind you of a great vacation in the islands.

Artwork can also be value because it’s irreplaceable. A friend of ours has a one-of-a-kind oil painting of her great-grandmother in her elegant dining room (although we bet great-grandma wouldn’t look so snooty if she knew a picture of cigar-smoking, poker-playing dogs was hanging one floor below).

Whether you’ve got a signed Andy Warhol, or your kindergartner’s first finger-painting, we can help when it’s time to pack and store your masterpieces. Check out these tips:

Packing and storing valuable artwork is a snap when you’ve working with 1-800-PACK-RAT. Just give us a call when you’re ready to transport your velvet Elvis. We’ll take such good care of him, you’ll practically hear the King mumbling, “Thank you, thank you very much!
