Fine Art Movers in NYC

We appreciate the nuances of moving Fine Art in NYC

If moving household goods requires a Master’s Degree, moving Fine Art requires a Doctorate. But worry not, the Doctor is in the house! Our crews have studied all facets of Fine Arts moving, including Pencil & Ink Drawings; Pastel, Acrylic & Oil Paintings; Sculpture and Photography & Film. We have moved every medium conceivable for Artists, Actors & Film Directors and Musicians as well as for Museums, Theaters and Conservatories.

We will use the right packing materials to preserve the integrity of your Art.  For example, glassine paper must be used for oil paintings so nothing sticks and custom built corrugated cardboard crates must be used for sculptures and other fragile works.

And finally, we will use the proper equipment to move the Art such dollies, pallet jacks and trucks with both ramps and lift gates.

  • We’ve studied and trained under certified art movers
  • We’ve moved artists
  • Museum quality glass
  • Marble Tables
  • Antiques

What You Should Know About Fine Art Moving:

  • Don’t pack it yourself – leave it up to trained, experienced Fine Art movers unless you know what you’re doing
  • Take it off the wall and leave it off the wall
  • If you are going to do it yourself, you will need to use specialized materials.
  • Do not use bubble wrap on your paintings

What Happy Customers Say

Absolutely first-class! The guys are punctual, considerate and polite. They worked fast and hard, paying special attention to protect every piece of furniture and art. Highly recommended.

-Johnny G. Brooklyn, NY

Fantastic, professional, courteous, no-nonsense movers. I moved a lot of art and china and everything came out perfectly intact. Very quick and high-quality. Pleased with the service and well-priced. Thanks, JP movers - I will use you again!

-Terry C. Manhattan, NY

I cannot find the words to fully express how pleased I am with this moving experience. I was moving art studios. John spent time with me on the phone, going over everything. In all the moving experiences I've had in my lifetime, this was hands-down the best, calmest, most professional, and most affordable. Use them, there's a reason all the reviews have five stars.

-Anne m. Queens, NY

After 20 years in a studio, I was to move my belongings into storage. It could have been a nightmare had the mover I hired was anyone else than JP Urban. I asked them to combine my artwork from another unit. This was a nearly impossible task as there was just too much stuff. But the foreman on my job was a genius in spatial reasoning. I am still in awe of how he organized the new unit so the EVERYTHING FIT.

-Lola R. Southern California, CA

The men were already familiar with moving artwork and knew how to stagger the oil paintings (long to short edge) so the canvas wouldn't puncture. I am so grateful to JP Urban! It is clear they care about doing the job well and fairly.
