How to Pack Glass Coffee Table
A fragile glass coffee table can be daunting to pack for a move. With the right materials and techniques, however, the process doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are some tips to help you pack your glass coffee table safely and securely.
Gather Packing Materials
Before you start packing your coffee table, make sure you have the supplies you need. You will need:
- Moving blankets (at least three)
- Shrink wrap
- Bubble wrap (or other cushioning material)
- Heavy-duty adhesive tape
- Labels and a marker
Prepare the Table
Remove any glass shelves from the table. Make sure to store the shelves separately to prevent them from breaking. Then, place a towel or blanket on the table and use a clean cloth to thoroughly wipe away any dust or dirt.
Wrap it Up
Take two moving blankets and wrap them securely around the coffee table. Then, use heavy-duty tape to secure the blankets in place. Once secured, use shrink wrap to create a tight seal around the entire table.
Cushion it Properly
Use bubble wrap or other cushioning materials to wrap the entire coffee table. Make sure to wrap it tightly, leaving no gaps and using extra cushioning where needed. Then, use more heavy-duty tape to give extra security.
Label and Load
To ensure the coffee table stays in one piece during the move, clearly label the box and list it in an inventory of all your items being moved. Once labeled, carefully place the table in the moving truck or trailer and secure it with ropes or straps.
Packaging your glass coffee table safely and securely can help it survive the move. With the right materials and techniques, you can pack your coffee table with confidence.
