How to Move a Marble Statue & Other Sculptures
Sculptures come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and density and are even more unique to move than framed paintings. Taking the extra safety precautions and providing exceptional wrapping and packing placement is essential, though they are usually more resistant to transportation damage. With padded protection, the long road ahead offers your sculptures more security and safety. When it comes to sculptures, transportation itself is the primary consideration. Even the sculptures that are on a smaller scale can be awkward and cumbersome to move. Providing the experts with their details, such as precise dimensions of the sculptures, can predetermine how the professionals will move them inside; whether it is through a doorway or other alternatives, for instance.
Additionally, we recommend safely disassembling the sculpture if it is applicable, and always perform the appropriate steps and protocol on doing so. Keep in mind, that to ensure their safe move, the larger scale sculptures may have to utilize a crane. To prevent slipping or unintentional damage, if you are counting on untrained professionals for assistance, be sure anyone who offers a hand when handling the sculptures are wearing wear a pair of high-quality gloves
