Moving Lamps - Moving 101

The proper way of moving lamps is as follows. This is safe, secure and should remove any possibility of breaking during a move.

  • Remove all bulbs and shades from lamps.
  • Pack in sturdy moving boxes labelled "fragile".
  • Wrap each wall hanging individually with bubble wrap or foam, blankets, or towels.
  • Pack flat items on their edges.
  • For large mirrors or pictures, cover both sides with bubble wrap or foam and heavy cardboard, and then bind with tape.
