  1. The best way to move artwork when moving houses is with a lot of padding. However, it has to be the correct kind. So, here are the things you are going to need to pack. 

    • Packing cardboard
    • Painters tape
    • Approximately sized box 
    • Bubble wrap 
    • Packing materials like air packs or clean paper

    Follow these steps to wrap your artwork:

    1. If the artwork has a glass pane, use the painter’s tape to make an X across the glass side and then go around the glass edge close to the frame. 
    2. Use a clean piece of cardboard and cut it into the same size as the frame for covering the glass.
    3. Wrap the whole thing in bubble wrap.
    4. Place the artwork in the box carefully with enough cushions on the sides.

    In some cases, it is best to get help from reliable movers to move your precious artwork.
