What is a Specialty Move?

A specialty move is a kind of relocation that requires extra attention and effort due to certain factors that make the moving process more challenging. These factors of the items being moved may include the:

Understanding what constitutes a specialty move is important for both moving companies and their clients, as it helps in determining the right resources and approach needed to execute the move with the utmost care and efficiency.

Why Hire a Professional for a Specialty Move?

Moving is a complex process that demands exceptional care. This need increases when it comes to specialty moves. A specialty move involves items require special handling and that are typically:

It could be anything from medical equipment, pianos, wine collections, industrial equipment, commercial kitchen equipment, exercise equipment, or heavy machinery to pieces of historical significance.

The unique nature of such items poses a significant challenge for anyone who attempts to move them without proper experience and expertise.

That’s why hiring professional movers for specialty moves is important. You need a team of experts who have the right equipment, training, and experience to handle items of this nature.

Our expert movers know how to pack and transport specialty items safely, so they arrive at their destination in pristine condition.

We also have the proper equipment to handle large items without causing damage to the item or the people involved in the move.

When you hire our professionals for a specialty move, you can relax knowing that they will take extreme care of your valuable items.

Unlike general movers, specialized movers understand how to deal with delicate and fragile items. They have the tools necessary to secure your belongings appropriately, from straps and pads to crates and specialized packaging.

Without professional equipment, it would be impossible to conduct a specialty move correctly. Attempting to move challenging items without specialized equipment can result in personal injury or damage to the item. The risk of such damage substantially increases when inexperienced movers handle the move.

To avoid potential risks, like damage to fragile or valuable items, hiring professional movers for specialty moves is critical.

Fragile Items

Fragile items require extra precautions during a move to ensure that they reach their destination in the same condition they were packed. The smallest jolt or careless handling can cause significant damage to fragile items, such as:

In the following sections, we will discuss the importance of hiring professional movers for fragile item moving and the specialized equipment required to ensure the safety of these valuable items.

When it comes to moving fragile items such as glassware, artwork, and antiques, there is no room for error. These items require extra care and attention to prevent damage during the move. That’s where having the proper equipment comes in.

It’s essential to have carts or dollies with soft rubber wheels to move fragile items around. This ensures that the items are transported smoothly and without any sudden jolts. Using carts or dollies reduces the risk of dropping or mishandling the items.

Furniture pads are also a crucial piece of equipment when moving fragile items. They provide a soft cushion that protects delicate surfaces such as mirrors or glass tabletops.

Small boxes and a roll of bubble wrap should also be on hand to properly pack up delicate items. These items should be wrapped carefully to protect them from any bumps or shocks during transport.

Another essential piece of equipment for moving fragile items is a mattress bag. This is particularly important when moving a mattress or box spring since they can become contaminated during transport. A mattress bag ensures that these items remain clean and free of damage.

A hand truck with straps is an essential piece of equipment for moving heavy, fragile items such as pianos or large appliances.

The straps keep the item in place while it’s being transported, reducing the risk of damage to the item or injury to the individuals involved in the move.

It is important to take the time to gather all the necessary equipment to ensure a safe and successful move.

When it comes to moving, packing material is essential, especially when it comes to protecting fragile items. There are a variety of packing materials available that work excellent for fragile items, such as:

  • breakables
  • glassware
  • porcelain


One of the most popular options for packing fragile items is bubble wrap. Bubble wrap provides a cushioned layer of protection that prevents fragile items from breaking during transport.

It’s easy to use and comes in rolls of various sizes, making it suitable for items of different shapes and sizes.

Another common packing material for fragile items is packing peanuts. Packing peanuts are made from expandable polystyrene foam, and they provide excellent cushioning for delicate items.

They are lightweight and can be used to fill empty spaces in boxes, which helps prevent items from shifting around during transport.

Foam sleeves are also commonly used to protect fragile items during transport. They are designed to fit snugly around the item, providing a protective layer of cushioning.

Foam sleeves work well for items such as glasses, mugs, and vases, and they can be easily secured with tape.

For additional reinforcement, double-boxing fragile items is a great idea. This involves packing the fragile item in one box and then placing that box into a larger box with additional packing material for extra protection.

It’s important to use sturdy boxes when packing fragile items. Boxes that are too weak may collapse during transport, and the items inside may become damaged.

Pack each item tightly with cushioning material, and make sure to label each box with a clear indication of its contents, so nothing gets misplaced or accidentally damaged.

Moving and storing fragile items can be a stressful task. Fragile items such as antique collections, delicate equipment, and sensitive electronics require extreme care and attention during the entire moving process.

To ensure the safety of these items, proper methods of packing, moving, and storing should be employed.

The first step in moving and storing fragile items is to use the appropriate packing material. Bubble wrap and packing peanuts are common materials used to protect delicate items during transport.

Bubble wrap provides a cushioned layer of protection that prevents fragile items from breaking during transport, while packing peanuts are lightweight and can be used to fill empty spaces in boxes, which helps prevent items from shifting around during transport.

Foam sleeves are also commonly used for protecting delicate items such as glasses, mugs, and vases.

To maximize protection during the move, it is crucial to use sturdy boxes specifically designed for fragile items. Boxes that are too weak may collapse during transport, and the items inside may become damaged.

The sturdy boxes should be chosen based on the size of the items you want to move, and you should ensure to fill any empty spaces with packing material to minimize the chance of items shifting around.

Labeling the boxes as ‘FRAGILE’ can help the movers identify which boxes require extra attention and care during transport.

The label should be clear and visible on all sides of the boxes to ensure the movers can identify them easily.

Careful placement of all the breakable items inside the boxes is crucial. Ensure each item is tightly packed with cushioning material, and use dividers to separate and avoid breakage of fragile items.

Once you have safely packed your fragile items, the final step is storing them. The items should be stored in a dry and secure location to avoid any water damage, breakage, or theft.

Making use of temperature-controlled storage facilities is highly recommended when storing sensitive equipment and electronics.

Moving and storing fragile items requires great care and attention to detail. However, following these proper methods ensures that your delicate items remain safe and secure during the entire process.
