Packing large pictures and furniture

What is your recommnedation to to pack large pictures and furnitures? Obviously it should be cheap as well. I was thinking to use bubble wrap and then use paper pads for pictures, and paper pads and then blankets for furniture. Please advice. Thanks. - JJ

Lets look at each case:

Furniture: as I explained in Wrapping the funiture with paper moving pads it is advisable to first stretch wrap your furniture and then use paper pads to cover it up for further protection. I don't think you need the extra protection of the fabrique blankets is you already plan to use the paper pads.

Stretch wrap is just $12.50 in our online store, and paper pads are a cheaper alternative to fabrique blankets (just $25.30 per dozen of paper pads, compared to $31.50 per pair of blankets)

Large Pictures: you don't really need to use bubble wrap for those, unless they have glass frame surface, in which case bubble wrap is the best solution. To protect the canvas it is enough to apply two pieces of strong cardboard directly to the canvas from both sides, or to the frame, in which case the canvas will not touch anything, but will still be protected from damage. Use moving tape to fix the cardboards, and then place several pictures together in a frame box that is specifically designed for those types of items.

Good luck with your move,
