Before transporting the mirror, it is necessary to pack it. Packaging materials for looking glass are corrugated cardboard, bubble wrap, packing tape.
Pack the mirrors in corrugated cardboard separately, wrapping the binding ends of looking glass and sealing them with adhesive tape.
Fold several mirrors of approximately the same size together and once again wrap in a sheet of corrugated cardboard, wrapping a bundle looking glass with adhesive tape for reliability.
If you pack the looking glass in a bubble wrap, it is advisable to shift each looking glass with cardboard. If there is no cardboard, wrap each looking glass with a wrap and fix the entire package with an adhesive tape. Be sure to fix all the ends of the mirrors separately, so that you do not accidentally put a bunch of unprotected ends on the asphalt.
With the usual wrapping tape, the looking glass need to be wrapped in several layers to create a good cushioning. You should always lay cardboard sheets between the mirrors. If the looking glass has any accessories, remove them and pack with a wrapping tape.
Put the small mirrors separately into the wrapping tape. They should be transported in a box with lighter things, for example, between packaged clothes, or at the top of the box, which is loaded into the car of the moving company.
If you are transporting many large mirrors, order a special glass-wagon machine at movers.best equipped with a pyramid stand for convenient fixing and transportation of glasses.
THE RULES OF FASTENING AND TRANSPORTING LOOKING GLASS IN THE CAR
Loading mirrors into a conventional truck must be done carefully. Try to avoid contacting the mirror with the sides of the cars. In the car, also place the mirrors only on edge, otherwise they may crack.
Leaning the looking glass on the solid wall of the machine or any other solid object (for example, a cabinet or refrigerator, if you transport all the furniture), be sure to fix them with straps. Professional trucks are equipped with such straps for fastening, so there will be no problems with this. The mount must be so strong that when the car moves, the looking glass do not move even a centimeter over the body. Pay attention to the mounting of mirrors both horizontally and vertically.
THE RULES FOR CARRYING LOOKING GLASS TO THE CAR
Looking glass should be carried in the vertical position by two people, holding them by the ends. Do not carry mirrors in the horizontal position, as they can break. Looking glass should be held from below when carrying.
Put the mirrors in front of the car only on a soft surface, just like in a car. To do this, lay several corrugated cardboard sheets or soft cloth on the asphalt and the bottom of the car body, so that the corners of the mirrors do not fray.
RULES FOR UNLOADING
When unloading mirrors, you should also need to be careful. Just carry them in the same vertical position. While unpacking the looking glass, remove the adhesive tape and the packing tape carefully. If the mirrors need to be fixed with accessories on the cabinet or other furniture, do it together.
