Professional Appraisals


Make sure to get a professional appraisal for all your antiques before you pack them up. This way if you purchase moving insurance, you will have accurate information about the prices in the event of an unforeseen damage. Discuss your insurance options with a broker.  We suggest that you insure your antiques and collectibles because you never know what can happen during the moving journey.



Leave it to the Professional Movers


These fragile items need to be packed a certain way with the most durable packing products. Our Portland movers will use protective wrap such as foam wrap to keep glass and wood items safe in the moving boxes. We also use bubble wrap and moving blankets to ensure extra security and a wooden crate works great for a protective shell. We also use extra durable moving boxes for these items because thin cardboard boxes won’t secure heavier items such as antiques. Purchasing the proper packing supplies for antiques will be worth it in the long run.


Once these items are securely packed and protected, it’s time to transfer them to the moving truck. The professionals at All My Sons Moving & Storage will put your antiques and collectibles on the moving truck last after all other items are on the truck. This way they are less susceptible to hitting other boxes on the truck and they will be the first boxes taken out when the truck arrives to your new location. Make sure that your fragile items are strategically placed next to boxes that are not likely to cause damages because unfortunately, accidents can happen on the road.


Our professional Portland movers can handle all the details when it comes to packing your most prized possessions. We specialize in the best packing techniques and we put so much care and attention into properly packing these items.
