Wheaton's Crown Moving and Storage trusted handlers of treasures like chandeliers, art, more
Online PR News – 27-November-2018 – INDIANAPOLIS – Now that Guernsey's has auctioned off the contents of the Asherwood Estate on behalf of the Great American Songbook Foundation, 1,000 auction lots need to be delivered to the bidders. Local Indianapolis mover Crown Moving & Storage, an interstate agent of Wheaton World Wide Moving, also based in Indianapolis, has been chosen to pack up the thousands of pounds of pristine furniture, furnishings, dÃ©cor, artwork, Oriental rugs, and antique books and deliver them safely to their new homes.
Why is being the mover for such an auction a big deal? If an auction goer paid for a 6-foot chandelier in perfect condition and received it in pieces, they would be a tad angry. Clearly, the decision on a moving partner was critical. Guernsey had to trust that the auctioned items would be handled well.
Wheaton World Wide Moving has a long history of excellence. In fact, the company received the Good Housekeeping Seal for interstate moving every year for more than 50 years running and was also the official mover for Steinway & Sons Pianos for more than 20 years.
"We're an employee-owned company, so our crews have a vested interest in providing the best service for our customers," said A.J. Schneider, Executive Vice President of Wheaton Van Lines, Inc. "We know we can trust our team with the amazing pieces from the Asherwood Estate."
The years-long connection with Steinway & Sons Pianos also gives Wheaton a natural fit with the Great American Songbook and its goal of music preservation.
While the auction was held November 17 and 18, Wheaton will start shipping items December 3. The process will take one to two months due to the breadth of items to be auctioned.
