Lamps are fragile items. That is why you have to pay special attention in packing it. You also have to make sure that it is handled with care especially if movers are going to transport them for you.

If you are going to pack the lamps yourself, you have to make sure you do it properly. The key is to keep it padded at all sides. So, you have to wrap it using some bubble wrap. Simply lay out the bubble wrap flat on a table and place the lamp on the center. Then roll the lamp and securely tape it. You should even tape it around a couple of times to make sure that it is secure. But before wrapping the lamp, make sure that you have removed the bulb the shade. Tie the cord around the base and tuck it in as well.

Tape the top and the bottom edges of the bubble wrap as well. Then get a box tall enough to hold the entire lamp. Place the lamp with the base down. Fill the empty spaces with newsprint and bubble wrap. If you have more than one lamp and the box can hold them, you can put more into the box. Just make sure that there is cushion in between the lamps. Make sure that each lamp will not shift as it is being transported. Use some packing tape to reinforce the bottom of the box. And don’t forget to label it “Fragile.” Indicate the contents as well so the movers will know that they need to be careful with it and where they need to put it.
