How to move sculptures and works of art

More safety if the boxes are lined with insulation to protect the purpose of shock and sudden movements during the transfer. Other materials, such as cardboard, bubble-wrap plastic or cork, are also excellent for protecting works of art and delicate objects in removals in Mallorc.
Special material for sculptures
When it comes to moving sculptures and works of art, we must choose a package that keeps the work firm to avoid shakes that damage it in the journey. A recommended packaging for these cases is a wooden box with crossbars that keep the piece immobilized. Beware, when packing marble pieces, using materials that have ink or color, such as newspaper or plastic. They can cause stains on the marble.
Other works of materials such as ceramics should be completely lined with bubble-wrap plastic. And, to transport frames, it is convenient to use spacers and protect them from the friction of frames.
