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.
