Our art movers have moved a lot of art in a lot of different places. After all, art is everywhere—on the walls and mantles of homes and in the lobbies and meeting rooms of businesses. Art can be fairly inexpensive—the frame may cost more than the piece it contains. (I have a couple of those.) But some is very valuable. In November, a painting by Modigliani fetched $170.4 million at auction, second in value only to a Picasso that sold in May for $179.4 million.

You’ve decided to move. Before you start writing checks, you’d like to get a handle on the question: How much will my move cost? So, what’s the best way to estimate moving costs?

I want to start this entry on military moves with a special note of gratitude. If you or a member of your family is serving, or has served, in defense of our nation, we honor your service. If you or a member of your family has sustained injury as a result of service, especially if someone you love has given his or her life, I am humbled. Your sacrifice only steels my will to promote the cause of peace and see an end to conflict.

People are still heeding Horace Greeley’s famous exhortation, as we see in the most recent analysis of traffic patterns. At the end of every year, Atlas looks at the myriad routes traced by our customers over the previous 12 months. To make the data for 77,705 interstate moves somewhat digestible, Atlas operations and marketing folks produce an illustrated report that shows every state’s propensity to attract or lose people.

Ernie’s Van & Storage has long catered to companies that provide moving as a benefit of employment. Employers are continually moving people to and from the Grass Valley and Rocklin area, and our experience makes us a good partner. I think the main reason corporate customers trust us for corporate relocation is our philosophy of moving. It’s not simply about moving household goods. (Although, handling furnishings and personal belongings with utmost care is certainly part of it.) Rather, we see ourselves as moving people and families. And we concentrate on “moving them well.”
