Unique Items That Require Specialty Moving

Moving is stressful. It’s especially so when you have items that are easily damaged or difficult to pack, such as china, large furniture, instruments and artwork. Getting peace of mind for your specialty items can help relieve a lot of moving-day stress.

What are specialty items?

Specialty items include belongings that are luxurious, irreplaceable, extra-large, high in intrinsic value, require unusual care, or otherwise different than your everyday household goods. Some items that fall under the specialty items category include:

Large or Expensive Furniture

Moving furniture can be exhausting. If it’s not done properly, moving furniture yourself can be damaging to the furniture or even dangerous for you. That’s why the best way to ensure your furniture arrives safely at its destination is to hire a professional moving company like Wheaton. We have all the necessary tools to move your furniture to your new home safely and efficiently.

Your Vehicle

Many folks drive their vehicle to their new home. But if you have more than one vehicle, you may need to have one shipped. Talk to our team today for guidance. Our moving experts can help get your car to your new home, no problem


Moving appliances can be especially difficult because of their size and weight. If you need to move your fridge, washer or dryer, we can help. We’ll make sure we get your appliances into your home in the same condition they were before the move.

Piano or other instruments

Pianos aren’t just heavy, they’re delicate. You definitely don’t want them shoved or jostled into a truck by someone who doesn’t appreciate the care they require. Our air-ride trailers are equipped with furniture pads, straps, decking materials and more to ensure your instrument is protected and cared for during your move.

Other items that could require specialty moving include:

  • Fixtures
  • Large or expensive equipment
  • China and other expensive glassware
  • Antiques
  • Artwork
