Learn How to Pack Lamps for Moving

Lamps are uniquely shaped objects making it harder to find the right size or shaped box for packing and moving. The Lamp Box is the perfect solution to handling and protecting your lamps, vases and golf clubs safely. This specialty box was created to provide support and protection to fragile lamps and other similarly shaped objects.

 How to Safely Pack a Lamp for a Move

 1. Prepare your lamp by removing the bulb and shade. Once removed, wrap the electric cord and plug around the base and tuck it into itself to prevent the cord from unraveling.
2. You can use several different protective supplies to provide extra protection for your lamp. For example, use Enviro-bubble to wrap the base of the lamp, and packing tape to secure the wrap in place.
3. Place lamp base in the box upright. Fill in the box around the lamp with packing peanuts or furniture pads to help prevent the lamp from shifting within the box during the transport.
4. Seal the box with packing tape and be sure to label “this end up” and “fragile”.

This box will hold up to 65 pounds, measures 12″ x 12″ x 40″ (W x L x H) and meets UPS shipping requirements. Looking for more boxes to complete your move?
