Didn’t know for sure what forum I should post this question in.. here goes..

How do you that build cabinets for a living, package/protect them so they can be transported across town for delivery..

My project is fairly large.. I plan on renting a trailer..

Do you wrap in plastic film? cover with moving blankets ect?

I need help bad.. worried about the move..

Thanks..

I normally cover with a moving blankets, then wrap with plastic wrap.
My motto is getting it there is half the job.
It’s worth the few pennies to make sure it’s protected for the move.
Plastic wrap is cheap compared to fixing something.
If it’s a short move, and small, sometimes I just wrap with plastic wrap but it depends on what it is. $$$

PS, I buy the 18” rolls

I use moving blankets. Cardboard works too
but blankets are a good investment.

We always used moving blankets. I’d also suggest renting a van, a trailer will leave you at the mercy of the elements.
