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.
