How to pack a mirror for moving 

 

 

 

Things you'll need 

  • Bubble wrap 
  • A pair of scissors 
  • An extra pair of hands 
  • Corrugated board 
  • Penknife 
  • Masking tape

Steps to pack a mirror

  1. Find an elevated surface - like a table 
  2. Lay bubble wrap on top of it
  3. Place mirror on top of your bubble wrap 
  4. Roll the bubble wrap from end to end, leaving some slack at each end until the bubble has fully covered the whole mirror
  5. Cut off the excess bubble wrap 
  6. Use masking tape and go around the each edge of the mirror
  7. Use masking tape and go around the shorter sides of the mirror 
  8. Use short tape to secure the bubble wrap on the longer side of the mirror
  9. Place the mirror aside 
  10. Lay the corrugated board on the table, making sure you have excess on each end 
  11. Place the wrapped mirror on top this layer 
  12. Use a penknife to score the corrugated board where you need to fold 
  13. Fold in and tape up! 

Tips during the move 

  • Invest in good packing materials 
  • Place the mirror upright against the wall of the truck 
  • Do not place anything on top of the mirror
  • Stick a fragile sticker on the outside of the corrugated board 
  • Label an "X" on the glass side of the mirror
