Picture Hanging and Art Installation
Neil T.'s review on Apr 17, 2021

We started to try to hang four large pictures high up above our stairs and quickly realised it was beyond us so tried Bidvine for the first time and selected William. Couldn’t be more pleased. He turned up spot on time. Took the time to agree with us exactly where we wanted the pictures (and helped us decide) and got on with it quickly and neatly. End result, three large pictures in a perfect straight row (notwithstanding wonky wall - he had a trick for that) and one on the otherside perfectly level. Took a bit over 3 hours and he rounded down. I’ll never hang another picture myself!


Picture Hanging and Art Installation
Max G.'s review on Apr 11, 2021

Will did an outstanding job moving large paintings and prints as well as a number of prized musical instruments into our new home. He was punctual, professional and carefully handled everything with all the right equipment to ensure that it was all transported as safely and securely as possible. Would highly recommend Will to anyone in need of such a meticulous service. Thanks Will!

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
We aim to have consistent and transparent estimates and pricing by having a set hourly rate for our work that includes all materials and travel time. Jobs further out of London or that require specialist hanging devices will require extra costs but these can be discussed. Congestion charge fee and any paid parking at the location are our only additional extras.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
In the enquiry and booking process it is helpful for us to know roughly how many items they are looking to hang and if any of them are particularly heavy (15kg+) or large (1.5m+). It is also helpful to know whether any items are to be hung at significant height or in a tricky location, we bring ladders to all jobs regardless but it helps to be prepared. When we meet with a customer at their home or business we like to go through all the items that they are looking to hang and their locations. Then we discuss hanging height options and if there are any considerations for placement and arrangement to discuss, we can advise on groupings and placement and help come to a solution the customer will be confident and happy with. If there are any issues with weight or wall material we will make the customer aware but rarely is any hang beyond the capabilities of the hanging fixings we bring with us.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
It's important for us to have have experience in the following areas for this work. Understanding the types of wall and their weight capacity. Knowledge of types of fixings available and what is the most appropriate for each item and situation. Familiarity with all kinds of frames, weights and hanging systems. With a background in gallery and museum work we have the years of experience that helps us provide the best service for our customers.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
It's important to find someone that values customer satisfaction and cares about being precise and accurate. This job can be completed by homeowners and handymen but hiring a professional gives you that confidence that items will be hung safe, secure and level. Our installation techniques provide the highest level of stability and safety for valuable and often fragile works of art.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Customers will want to know approximately how long the job will take based on the number of items they have. Also what availability the company has and whether that corresponds with any days that suit them.
What are some good examples of past customers?
We love to help our clients transform their homes and businesses with their art works. It's often that we hear "It finally feels like a home!" once the art is arranged and hung. We really enjoy being able to see and engage with the range of art and styles we experience in clients collections. We work with private homeowners, top designers, businesses, and retailers to install paintings, prints, screens, mirrors, photographs, posters, drawings and more. Our goal is simple: to provide the optimal placement advice and solution, a safe and secure installation and the best experience for our client’s, every time.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
We work with a range of customers and job scopes, from single picture or mirror hangs, to large scale jobs with many items. Examples of work we completed recently are: a customer wanted a single framed picture hung in Bermondsey but from the ceiling on single point wire fixings which we sourced and installed for them, another customer was an art collector that recently moved home and it took over three days to hang their large collection
How did you first get into this line of work?
I got into this line of work by working in a project space gallery in East London while studying a fine art degree in Goldsmiths College. From there I ended up working at Sotheby's and then the Tate gallery in the exhibition departments. Since then I have worked for a multitude of galleries, auction houses, installation companies, museums and more. I started Seido Art Services to distill this knowledge and experience into a business with high standards and the best outcomes for our customers.
