Hello, I will be moving the end of the month. I am looking for the best way to pack my framed prints and keep them safe during the move. Any help and tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks :pint:

I've heard empty mirror boxes work great.

Cross town? out of state?

-heavy plastic wrap/sleeve (3 mil)
- tape foam core over glass area to protect it
- wrap the whole thing in large bubble wrap
- then box it (if possible)

Yes, they do. You should be able to get them at any local moving outfit.

I have a Tahoe so this method is easy for me. I have lots of moving blankets. I just lay them down in the back each wrapped in a moving blanket. I have probably done this with 40+ framed stuff, never had a issue.

Yeah, as others have said just all depends on the move. When I moved from place to place in Denver I just stacked them in the back of my escape with towels between them and then snugged them in so they couldnt shift.

When I moved from Denver to Seattle it was bubble wrap and mirror boxes for everything, since we were using a moving company and I couldnt fit all my frames in the car I also bought some of the cardboard corner pieces and put those on to try to make sure none of the corners got crushed.
