Auer’s Moving & Rigging is included in The Franklin Report
Superior rigging services; residential and commercial moving, fine arts and antiques
Auer’s performs the kind of stunt-like hoisting and rigging operations that draw crowds of onlookers. Top sources say it’s one of the best firms in the city for dealing with oversize pieces, and Auer’s has a client list (Christie’s, Sotheby’s) that backs up that reputation. The firm has a 30 person team, including a variety of hoisting, rigging, and installation experts that have overseen the transportation and construction of some of Manhattan’s most recognizable (and biggest) public sculptures. Though not as well known for everyday moving jobs, Auer’s also does local, long distance, and international household moves as an agent for Wheaton Worldwide Moving. Some references blush at the price tag, but those who rely on Auer’s expertise insist they would never use another company.
“Best riggers in town.” “The only people I would trust to hoist a marble table up twenty floors without damaging anything.” “Their prices are high, so don’t call them just to haul your couch. But if you need a grand piano brought up to the 39th floor, don’t call anyone else.”
