Packing and Moving a Dining Room

How to Protect a Dining Room Table for Moving?

Remove the leaf (if applicable). Protect the table by wrapping it with blankets. Run tape and/or shrink wrap around the tabletop to secure them in place.

Once the top of the table has been padded, flip it so the bottom of the table is facing up and remove the legs/base.

After unbolting or unscrewing the legs, use another blanket to wrap the table’s legs/base. So, you don’t have to worry about nicks, dings, and/or scratches.

IMPORTANT: Always try to put the screws back in the hole where they came from so you don’t have to be looking for them once you’re ready to reassemble the table.

Best packing method to move a glass top table successfully:

  • Use cardboard boxes to wrap the entire glass top and secure with tape while making sure that the adhesive doesn’t come in contact with the glass.
  • Now wrap it with a thick moving blanket (or a comforter).
  • Plastic-wrap it and add a “fragile” sticker to each side of the glass. We want every mover to be aware that it is a fragile item.

Packing tips

Packing Tips to make moving easier:

Before packing, we recommend you have a yard/garage sale to get rid of unused or unwanted items. This is usually the best way to purge items that are no longer needed. Nowadays technology makes this task very easy. Many people use craigslist.org or OLX.com to post their items for sale, as well as Apps like OfferUp.

At the end of the day, donate the things that didn’t sell. The less items you have to move, the easier and less expensive the move will be!

Tip #1

Use the right size boxes when packing.

How to pack books?

Before we start packing, we must know the right size box to pack books

The book box is 1.5 cubic feet and measures 17”x12 3/8”x 12 3/8”. This box is the smallest of the standard-sized boxes, and because of that, it is the ideal choice for packing heavy items and small items.
This is one of the most common moving box sizes, and can be used for a wide variety of items.

How to properly pack books in 3 easy steps

Step 1: Prepare the Box for Packing

If you are using new boxes, you’ll need to put them together first. Make sure you seal the bottom well by doubling the amount of tape. If you’re-using a recycled box, we recommend you always tape the bottom again with packing tape to make sure it will hold. Continue reading “How to pack books”
