How to Transport Your Collection

At Atlas Canada, we understand the significance behind your collection. Whether it’s coins, cards, fine art, or something completely different, it is a personal and financial investment that requires the utmost attention when moving.


The last thing anyone wants is their prized possessions getting lost, damaged, or impacted by the moving process. Luckily, there are many ways to keep your collectables safe during the moving process.


Evaluating your Collection

Firstly, identify your collection and talk to your mover about it. For example, figuring out how many items are in your collection and the weight will determine a plan of action for your move. If your collection is made up of smaller pieces, such as comic books, stamps, vinyl records, toys, or similar sizes, consider bringing it with you in your car or small trailer, as it might not take up a lot of space. For larger collectables, you may want to consider choosing dependable movers and packers to help.


It is important to note that there are some items prohibited from being shipped on the moving van. For more information on non-admissible items, ask your Atlas moving agent.


Whether you seek the assistance of professional movers, or decide to move on your own, it is important to incorporate these steps early on:


  • Make an inventory of all the items in your collection. This will help ensure all your items are in attendance and accounted for before moving day. It will also make the unpacking process that much easier, getting you back to enjoying your collection that much faster.


  • Look into the specifics of safely transporting your collection. If you are a member of a collecting community, or perhaps have connections with collectors who have previously moved locations, reaching out for information and advice is an excellent option. Be sure to share this information with your moving professionals before they pack up the truck for transportation.
