Tips for Moving Large Mirrors

Tips for Moving Large MirrorsIt’s the one thing you dread moving: the 100 pound, colossal mirror. If you’ve never moved a large mirror with a moving truck before, every little bump in the road will make you second guess the thickness of the sheet you wrapped it in. But, with just a few tips, you’ll be ready to go.

Tape

This step is especially important for larger mirrors. You’ll want to tape across the mirror, horizontally and vertically. Create all kinds of crisscrosses. If your mirror breaks during the move, the pieces won’t shatter all over the place. Instead, the tape will keep the shards in a somewhat better position to dispose of without injury.

Bubble Wrap

It’s just essential. Bubble wrap will protect the mirror from edges and corners, bumps and boxes.  Bubble wrap the mirror as many times as you want. The more you have the better, right? Just don’t pop the bubbles until after the move.

The Best Box

Invest in a mirror carton. It’s a box specially made for mirrors. The mirror carton is divided into four parts that interlock and move to fit the frames of most mirrors. In conjunction with the bubble wrap and tape, you won’t have any problems moving any mirror.

And best of all, you won’t have to worry about breaking them. Who needs that kind of luck, anyway?

    My brother is moving into a new home and they are using a moving company to move their things. Your tip about preparing as much of your furniture as you can before they come was very insightful. It seems that doing this may help the move go smoother.
