How To Pack Table Top Glass For Moving?
Moving can be one of the most exciting and daunting times in many peoples life. Moving not only offers a great opportunity at a fresh start but also allows you to get rid of some of the junk and clutter that has been piling up in the garage. However, spending time packing up all your belongings can be stressful. It is very important that your precious items arrive safely to their destination. To accomplish this, it is essential to pack up all your items carefully. Here are a few tips on how to pack your glass tabletops and ensure they do not crack or break on their way to your new home.
First, you will want to first measure the dimensions of your glass tabletop. This will come in handy later when choosing a box to carry it. Then, wrap your glass tabletop in craft paper and wrap it tightly with masking tape. The tape and craft paper will help hold the glass together. This will prevent the glass from shattering everywhere if it does end up cracking. Wrap your tabletop glass with a few layers of bubble wrap. The bubble wrap helps reduce the shock and restricts movement while the glass is being transported.
Secondly, choose a box with the right dimensions. Remember, the tighter the fit the better because less movement means less of a chance of the tabletop bouncing around during movement. Next, you will want to place the wrapped tabletop into the box. You can add some packing peanuts to the bottom of the box for extra shock absorbing power. Once you have added the table top into the box, ensure the fit is as snug as possible. You can now go close the box and begin to use masking or moving tape to secure the box close. Tape will ensure that the box will not open during transport.
Finally, make sure to write “Fragile” on all sides of the box. This will help the movers differentiate between the different boxes. Also, make sure to pack the boxes of glass last and onto its side in the moving truck. Do not place it flat on the floor or add any additional weight on top of it.
