How to Pack and Store Table Lamps

storage units ManhattanToo much stuff? Thinking about downsizing your apartment? Before you do that, consider how much space you can free up by moving some of your belongings into a storage unit. As you look around your apartment and identify things that can get moved into storage, those big table lamps just might make the cut. If so, here are a few tips for packing and storing them safely.

  • Secure the bottom of the moving back with reinforced packing tape
  • Remove the bulb and shade, wrap the cord around the lamp’s base, roll the lamp in bubble wrap
  • Place the lamp in the box base down and use newsprint or extra bubble wrap to fill any spaces in the box
  • Unless you have very heavy table lamps, the boxes containing your lamps will be light and should go on top of other boxes in the storage unit to avoid being crushed under the weight of heavier object
