How to Pack a Glass Coffee Table for Moving

Moving is always a stressful task, especially when it comes to larger items such as a glass coffee table. Packing your glass coffee table properly will ensure that it remains safe during transit, making for an easier transition. Here is what you need to do to properly pack your glass coffee table:


  • Clear off The Table: Before packing, clear off the table, removing all decorations and fragile items. If something remains on the table, add some padding such as bubble wrap to protect the items.
  • Wrap the Base: Take some padding such as a sheet of foam or bubble wrap and wrap it around the table’s legs and base. Secure the padding with masking tape. This will prevent the glass from being scratched or damaged.
  • Wrap the Glass Top: Take an appropriately sized quilt, or a bubble wrap/polystyrene sheet combination and cover your glass top. Secure the top with packing tape. Make sure the tape is applied properly to prevent damage.
  • Packing the Table: After wrapping the coffee table, place it inside a box. Put some padding such as bubble wrap or foam around the base and legs to ensure that the glass top is safe. Lastly, tighten the straps/handles to secure the table.


  • Wrap items with copious amounts of padding when possible.
  • Label the box with ‘Fragile’.
  • To move the table, use two people. Have one person hold the base and the other lift the top.
  • For extra protection, wrap the table in several layers of plastic wrap.

Now you know how to properly pack your glass coffee table for a safe and secure move. By following these steps, you can ensure that your table will remain safe during transit, and make for an easier transition to your new home.
