Check out the testimonial from our client Marilyn Bardet, who needed to move 50 artworks from her late husband:

“ On Feb 26, 2024, SF Bay Area Moving did a very special moving project for me that required careful handling and transport of 50 large-scale, heavy, framed oil paintings—my late husband’s powerful, beautiful work — from our studio in the Benicia Arsenal to permanent secure storage at nearby Benicia Mini Storage. As a painter myself, I had been worried: how each painting was handled mattered. Each canvas had to be carried separately, one at a time, down steep outside stairs, to be packed securely in the truck with extra precautions: paint surfaces would be vulnerable to damage by poking or denting from front or back of the canvas. Each one had to be judged for its size relative to the next one in order, front to front, back to back, when Building stacks of paintings against the wall of the truck. A large sheet of cardboard had to be placed between each canvas, for protection in transit and also in storage racks.

On the day of the move, this very delicate job couldn’t have been more efficiently and expertly accomplished! Graciously taking in my instructions at the outset, the men worked as a focused, professional team. Within 3-1/2 hours, as estimated, all the paintings had been removed from the studio and safely transported, were carefully racked in the storage unit. Everything went smoothly without a hitch! Not only was I pleased and relieved, I was immensely grateful for the respect each man gave the paintings shown in their handling, start to finish.”
