Firstly, if the painting you want to move is traditional oil on canvas, you need to be sure that the painting is completely dry before the moving process begin. It could take up to 6 months for a painting to really dry up. When you are sure that the painting you want to move is dry, you can start packing the painting.
Buy appropriate reliable packing supplies – these include sturdy boxes of varying sizes, packing tape bubble wrap.
After you buy all the packing supplies you need, start packing each painting individually.
If your painting is framed with glass, put tape across the front of the painting like an X, so even the glass got broken your painting will be protected from damage.
Wrap each painting with non printed newsprint and then with bubble wrap. Don’t worry if you overdo the wrapping. It is a better idea to leave the painting with the frame; it is very difficult, even for an expert to put the painting back in the frame again.
After you are done with the bubble wrap, tape cardboard around your painting and place it in a flat fitted picture box.
It may sound you silly, but don’t forget to label all picture boxes with “FRAGILE”.
Finally, take care when loading your artworks. Take in mind, especially if you are performing a long distance move, that valuables such as paintings may need special conditions during transportation.
However, if your paintings are quite expensive, you should hire a professional moving company to deal with the moving process. Hiring an experienced moving company to pack, transport and unpack your precious art can ensure that it will arrive intact. A professional moving company will photograph all of your paintings and they will be fully insured, so even if the worst thing happens, you will be well compensated. It is all up to you.
