Re: *Moving antiques and art

Lakelife. Curious about ... how your packing and move went? Which company did you finally select? As mentioned earlier we selected Fry-Wagner, Lenexa, KS, a United agent, however its headquarter is in Missouri and since we moved from Kansas City, MO, Missouri laws would apply. We had also received ...

Re: *Moving antiques and art

Lakelife. Curious about what valuation option you took, ... Hello Phaeton, I'll split my answers in two since I also want to add some specific comments about the moving company that we selected for the review section.

My understanding was that the driver was the one who would actually arrange for (or select) the packers. That information actually made me hesitant to use them as movers since when it came to fixing pa...

Re: Moving antiques and art

Here is another question: How does Moovers, Inc select its packers?

Moving antiques and art

We are planning to move later this year from Missouri to Southern California. Some of the furniture will be sold or donated but we'll keep a number of individual antique furniture pieces and quite a bit of sculptural art pieces. What can or should we expect with regard to packing and insurance cover...
