Packing Pictures, Frames and Mirrors

  1. Select a box that is bigger than the picture you need to pack.
  2. Keep the box flat or if the box has already been put together, break it apart.
  3. Tape one end of the box securely with packing tape.
  4. Place the picture in it's frame flat on an oversized piece of bubble wrap.
  5. Wrap the picture in the bubble wrap as you would if you were wrapping it to give as a present. Secure the wrapping with packing tape.
  6. Slide the picture into the opening of the box. Seal the end securely with packing tape.
  7. Mark the outside of the box, on both sides, "Fragile" and its location; living room, bedroom, kitchen, etc...
  8. When packing the box on the truck, keep the packed picture on its side, not flat. The picture will absorb pressure easier on its edge than when flat.


  1. If you want additional protection for the corners of your picture frames, you can purchase specialized cardboard protectors just for this purpose.
  2. Stack series of packed pictures on their edges inside a wardrobe box. Make sure they're secure by packing objects around them.
  3. On the moving truck, pack pictures on their edges and in a place where they won't fall over. Wedge them between heavy objects that will not shift during the move.

What You Need:

  • Appropriate size box
  • Bubble wrap
  • Packing Tape
  • Marker
  • Pictures in their frames
