Moving Antiques & Fine Art


Careful Handling

Abels Moving Services offers comprehensive removals for moving antiques, delicate collections and valuable items, such as wine, paintings, books and sculptures across the UK and overseas. We have the expertise to ensure your relocation is seamless and that your valuables receive the care and attention they deserve. 

One of the UK’s leading moving companies, Abels evolved from an auctioneering background and has maintained an innovative and sympathetic approach to the requirements of private collectors and the museum and commercial art gallery worlds. We understand the importance of moving valuable items with care, which is why our removal crews are fully trained in their craft of packing, handling and delivery. Our teams have also been fully security cleared to offer you the ultimate peace of mind.

Specialist Removal Packages for Your Most Treasured Items

From the initial planning of your move, you’ll have access to a dedicated Relocation Consultant who will help you to create a personalised removals package that is created specifically to meet your needs. Your Relocation Consultant will be your constant point of contact throughout the process. 

Our bespoke moving services are offered on a modular basis, which means you can select which aspects you require within your moving package. This includes:

  • Cataloguing collections
  • Packing, wrapping and crating
  • Transportation
  • Specialist Storage
  • Unpacking 
  • Installation in your new home
