Moving Tips: How to Safely Pack Your Pictures and Mirrors


Packaging your pictures and mirrors can be a daunting task. These are often some of the most delicate items in your home and can be easily scratched or broken if not packed properly. In this blog post, we will give you three tips on protecting these items when you are moving. Follow our tips to pack your cherished possessions safely!

Use The Appropriate Materials

The first tip is to use the appropriate materials when packing your pictures and mirrors. For pictures, you should use a sturdy box and bubble wrap. It would help if you used a mirror box or a specially designed box for mirrors. These boxes will protect your items from being scratched or broken.

You should always avoid using tape on the glass of your mirror or touching paintings without gloves. This can cause the glass to crack and leave marks like smudges or fingerprints.

Secure The Packages

The second tip is to secure the packages. It would be best if you used packing tape to secure the box. Then, you should label it with “Fragile” and “Do Not Stack.” Add extra packing paper to the bottom to cushion the inside of the box, and pack enough paper around it to prevent it from moving.

Extra packing tape can be used to reinforce the corners.

Be Careful When Loading And Unloading

The third and final tip is to be careful when loading and unloading the box.

When lifting the box, make sure that you keep it close to your body. This will prevent it from being dropped and will protect your items. You should also avoid putting it down too hard, as this can cause the box’s contents to shift and become damaged.

Don’t stack the boxes on top of each other and keep them steady by placing them next to heavy objects. When putting various items into the same box, make sure it’s not too heavy.
