shelving, and display cases are used by many business from retail
boutiques to reception areas. They present a clean and impressive
look for displays – and can seem like a nightmare to move. But,
with the right approach and moving supplies, it can be done
efficiently and safely.
The trick to moving
any glass pieces is to stabilize the glass by cushioning it from all
sides. That’s the principle behind the procedure.
There are a few
basic items you should have on hand.
1. Remove all
shelves and the shelving clips that hold them in place.
2. Once the cabinet
is completely empty, fill up the space inside it with blankets or
comforters. It should be snug without putting pressure on the glass.
3. Wrap the outside
of the cabinet completely with moving blankets.
4. Secure the moving
blanket with two or three layers of packing tape.
5. For extra
cushioning, add a layer of cardboard outside of the blankets,
securing it with packing tape.
Once you have packed
it as securely as you can, the next question is: How to move it? It
depends a great deal on a number of factors like size, weight, and
where you are moving to. Are there stairs to be negotiated? Long
hallways to take it down? You may require special equipment such as:
Screen Dolly– with 44” high padded sidebars or arms that protect the glass,
and swivel casters, it can be used to move cabinets up to 20”
wide, with a load rating up to 1,600 lbs.
Stairclimbersand other devices can make moving up a flight of stairs doable.
With the right
precautions, your impressive glass cabinet or showcase will make it
to your new location safe and intact – and so will you.
