Whenever possible, use moving blankets, foam padding, and furniture pads to wrap and pack your furniture. For delicate items, there is no such thing as having too much protection. Make sure that you don’t wrap up wooden furniture in plastic shrink wrap or bubble wrap, as wood is an organic material that needs to breathe. If you do want to use bubble wrap for additional padding during furniture moving, make sure that you have a layer of furniture pads or blankets in between the wrap and the furniture item.
If you have a wooden coffee table or dining room table that has a glass tabletop, it is important that you ensure the glass portion is covered in packing paper. You should also use telescoping cardboard boxes in order to further protect the item, and if you don’t have these materials handy, you should use towels and old blankets to wrap up the tabletops. Regardless of the materials that you use, make sure that you are also using plenty of tape so that the wrapping won’t slip off to expose your furniture.
