Tips for packing and moving mirrors 

First things first, you should designate one place for packing. As mentioned, mirrors are fragile, thus easily breakable. If you have a load of items laying around, you can slip and drop your mirror. Your mirrors can also bump into large pieces of furniture thus breaking into tiny pieces. Therefore, clean one corner of your room. Use one table that is large enough to hold your mirror. First, place a moving blanket and then packing paper. Place your mirror on the top. Use a piece of cardboard to protect the glass part of your mirror. Secure it with packing tape. Then, wrap your mirror in packing paper or bubble wrapping. Again, use the tape to secure the package. Then, wrap everything again with moving blankets. Lastly, put it in the box. In the meantime, you can think about how much to tip movers, what to do after the move, etc.

All in all, packing and moving mirrors should not be a problem. Make sure to have all the necessary packing supplies and follow all the tips.
