There can be lot of complications involved with moving fine art such as precious paintings and sculptures. Sterling Van Lines has been the leading pioneer for 30 years in the moving industry and specializes in transporting unique items and artwork for museums, galleries, and private collectors.

We Specialize In Luxurious Items

Sterling Van Lines is an art moving company that specializes in the handling and shipping of professional art pieces, paintings, statues, chandeliers, and other precious, luxurious and collectible items.

For more than 30 years, we have been trusted by museums such as the J. Paul Getty Museum, auction houses, galleries and estates to take care of sensitive materials and deliver them safely to a specific destination. Our dedicated team of art movers deal with different size and weight and ensures every item is prepared safely and with care for delivery.

Fine Art Movers

Moving art definitely requires special care to ensure your valuable pieces arrive intact at your destination. Art pieces are objects that need to be packaged in a specific way using durable packing products. Paintings and prints can be packed in an artwork or mirror box. For larger and heavier artwork, we can create a wooden crate as a protective shell to help keep your artwork safe during shipping.

The staff at Sterling take the necessary precautions to properly protect your precious pieces. These items need to be moved and packed properly. The unique items are often added last after everything has been placed in our delivery truck and the first objects to be taken out of the vehicle.

At Sterling Van Lines, we make sure that your item is settled in as safely as possible. Once we arrive at your new location, we do a thorough inventory and ensure everything is intact and in the same condition. We put care into properly packing your items. We know how much it means to you.

Unique Items

Sterling Van Lines personnel are experts at moving and protecting your special, unique and out-of-the-ordinary items. Many people are scared to ship fragile items because they are old and often brittle. They can break when you pick them up. These items need to be moved and packed properly. Sometimes, we create a customized crate so it does not get damage during shipping.

In fact, here is a fascinating story that the staff of Sterling experienced back about 20 years ago. We were asked to move a huge piece of glass from California to Canada. It was ten feet long, five feet wide and a quarter of an inch thick. Six men were required to lift it. So, how could the staff move this huge piece of glass to Canada without breaking it? A customized wooden crate was built with a framework involving garage door springs on which the glass piece was hung so that it “floated” in the air inside the truck all the way to Canada. The glass arrived at its destination in perfect condition. No wonder the Canadians were impressed with the ingenuity of the staff at Sterling.
