How to Protect Your Photos and Wall Art While Moving

How to Protect Your Photos and Wall Art While Moving

If you’re planning on packing up your home and moving to a new residence, you have your work cut out for you. It takes time to remove everything off the walls, disassemble furniture, and sort through all the odds and ends that you’ve collected throughout the years. If you have a large family, it can take even longer because you have more rooms to go through and pack.

Packing and Protecting Photographs and Artwork 101

To help guide you through the process, we’ve created a short guide for you to reference whenever you need assistance throughout your move. It provides you with tips unpacking your most prized photographs and pieces of artwork. That way, you’re not at a loss when you get settled into your new home and find out the wall art was damaged. You’ll have all of your wall art arrive in perfect condition for you to put it on display once again. Here are some ways to protect your photos and wall art while moving:

  • Bubble Wrap. The air pockets in the bubbles add extra padding. Making sure each canvas and picture frame is fully wrapped and taped prevents them from being punctured or broken along the way. Keep a pair of scissors in your car with you while you’re moving so that you don’t need to search for them when you’re ready to create the gallery wall in your new home.
  • Packing Paper. If you use enough of it, you can protect your wall art rather quickly. Taping it well is the answer. While the photos and picture frames are moving from one location to the next, they won’t slip out of their coverage and become damaged.
  • Soft Blankets and Linens. You likely need to pack these items anyway. You can use them to create extra padding for your photos and artwork. If you don’t have any extra available, you can rent moving blankets from the moving company for an additional fee.
  • Painter’s Tape. If you have picture frames with the glass in them, you can prevent it from breaking by taping it to the frame. Painter’s Tape is easy to remove without leaving behind residue. You should not, however, put it on photo canvases, just picture frames.

Give your precious items an added layer of protection by mindfully wrapping and caring for them while packing. You can avoid damage from occurring by making sure that they are covered in cloth or wrapped securely in bubble wrap. There are also boxes specifically made for canvases and picture frames that you can invest in for the move.
