How To Pack Picture Frames For Moving | Adios Moving LLC

Packaging your valuable framed artwork and pictures for moving can be a stressful process. But it doesn’t need to be! With the right packing material, you can protect your frames and artwork from damage during the move.

Start by wrapping each of your framed pieces in a thick blanket for extra protection. To help keep them secure, use packing tape to create an extra layer around the blanket. You can also use bubble wrap to fill any extra space between the frame and blanket.

Once you’ve wrapped each picture frame, gather all of your framed pictures and place them in a mirror box or other strong cardboard box that is large enough to fit all of them. Make sure there is plenty of soft packing paper and/or bubble wrap at the bottom of the box to cushion each piece. Then, fill any remaining space with more packing material like cardboard corner protectors or additional bubble wrap so that nothing shifts during transit.

Finally, label each box with a permanent marker so that professional movers know how to handle it with extra care when transporting it from one location to another. By following these steps, you can ensure safe transport for your beloved framed art pieces and photographs!

Step 1: Lay down a thick blanket on a flat surface.

Lay down a thick, cushiony blanket on a flat surface before you start packing your valuable framed artwork and pictures for moving. This will provide an extra layer of protection from scratches during the wrapping process and will help keep your frames secure. Make sure the blanket is big enough to fit all of your frames and packing materials. Once the blanket is down, you can begin wrapping each piece in bubble wrap or other protective material before placing them in the box. With this simple step, you can significantly reduce the risk of damage to your valuable framed pictures during transit!

Step 2: Get a mirror box, and tape one end closed.

Step 2: Get a mirror box and tape one end closed.

Once you’ve gathered all of your framed pictures, it’s time to choose the right boxes for them. A specially-designed mirror box is the best vessel for transporting pictures safely. These boxes are longer and flatter than regular moving boxes, so they provide extra protection for items like picture frames. You can find them at most moving or office supply stores, such as Home Depot, which carries an especially heavy-duty line. Once you’ve got a box that’s slightly bigger (around 30%) than your frame(s), it’s time to start packing! Before putting anything into the box, tape one end closed with packing tape to ensure everything stays secure during transportation.

Step 3: Wrap the picture frame with packing paper.

Once you’ve got your box and it’s sealed, it’s time to start wrapping your pictures. Take a length of packing paper and lay the frame, glass-side down, against it. Stretch one layer of packing paper around to the back of the frame, just like you would if you were wrapping a present. Make sure that all sides are covered with at least one layer of protection. If possible, use permanent marker to make a note on the packing paper regarding which side is glass facing up. This will help you keep track of what’s what when it comes time to unpack! Once everything is wrapped up nice and snug in the packing paper, place it carefully into the mirror box. If there is extra space in the box after placing your picture frame(s), fill it with soft packing material such as bubble wrap or extra layers of packing paper to ensure that nothing moves during transit.

Step 4: Secure with packing tape.

Now that your framed artwork is wrapped and placed in the box, it’s time to make sure it stays put! Secure the wrapped frame with packing tape. Start by taping around all the edges of the wrapped frame. Use enough tape to tightly secure the packing paper, but ensure that you don’t use so much tape that it will damage any part of the frame when removed. Once you’ve finished taping all sides of the frame, add an extra layer of protection by placing a piece of cardboard over top and taping it down as well. This will give your framed artwork extra protection during transport, ensuring that it doesn’t shift inside its box or become damaged while en route to your new home.

Finally, if possible you may want to add extra cushioning such as bubble wrap or cardboard corner protectors around any particularly fragile items like picture frames or framed art pieces. This will help to keep them safe from potential bumps during transit and ensure your special memories stay intact for years to come! If you are moving a large collection of photos or art pieces, you may want to consider hiring professional movers who can provide special care for these items.

Step 5: Repeat with bubble wrap.

It’s time to get your pictures ready for their move! Step 5 is all about protecting your delicate items with bubble wrap. Begin by placing a layer of bubble wrap over the soft packing paper that you used in step 4. Secure the bubble wrap with packing tape, making sure to cover all edges of the frame and using enough tape to keep it securely in place. Once your artwork is wrapped, use a permanent marker to label each item clearly and indicate which side should face up when moving. This will help make sure that your framed pieces stay upright during transport and arrive looking just as beautiful as they did before they left! If you’re transporting canvas paintings or other large art pieces, take extra care when wrapping them so that none of the edges are exposed, as this could lead to damage in transit. Finally, if you have any extra space inside of your box, fill it with packing material like Styrofoam peanuts or shredded paper so that your pictures don’t move around too much during transport.

Step 7: Insert the frame into the box.

Step 7: Insert the Frame into the Box. Now that your frames are fully protected, it’s time to get them ready for their move! Carefully insert each frame one at a time into the box and make sure to rest them on a flat surface with the picture side facing up. If you need extra protection, you can add a piece of cardboard or other cushioning material between each frame and the sides of the box. Once all of your frames are securely in place, use more packing paper to fill any remaining gaps. For particularly fragile items, such as mirrors or framed artwork, you may want to consider using cardboard corner protectors for extra support during transit. Finally, if you’re working with professional movers, be sure to let them know about any special care instructions for your framed pictures so that they can handle them with extra caution when loading and unloading!

Step 8: Tape the box shut with packing tape, and label it as “FRAGILE.”

Once all of your pictures are safely in the box, it’s time to close and seal it shut. Start by taking a roll of packing tape and running it along each edge of the box to ensure that there are no gaps or openings. Make sure to go slowly so that you don’t accidentally tear the cardboard or damage any of the items inside. To make sure that your movers understand that this box contains fragile items, use a permanent marker to write “FRAGILE” on the outside in big bold letters. This will alert them to take extra special care when loading and unloading your boxes. Once you’ve labeled the box, you’re all done! Your framed pictures are now ready for their journey to their new home!
