Framed photographs have helped transform your ordinary house into a comfortable home. However, if you recently bought or sold a home, you may need to pack up these photographs and take them to a new address in the near future.

Lucky for you, we're here to provide expert insights into how to safely and quickly pack your framed photographs prior to moving day.

Now, let's take a look at three best practice for packing framed photographs.

1. Choose the Right Packing Material

The right packing material for a framed photograph usually varies based on the size of the photograph itself.

For example, if you're packing a small framed photograph, you may want to use a small moving box. Pack the box with bubble wrap or packing paper as well to fully secure the photograph during transit.

If you need to move large framed photographs, you may want to pick up specialty boxes. These boxes can be purchased from a moving supply store and will make it easy for you to protect your photographs as they go from Point A to Point B.

2. Wrap the Picture and Frame

When it comes to protecting framed photographs, packing paper is ideal. If you wrap the photograph with the frame glass-side down against the paper, you can reduce the risk of damage.

For those who decide to pack multiple small framed photographs in the same box, it often pays to individually wrap each photograph in packing paper. That way, you can keep various framed photographs together and prevent them from getting damaged.

Also, use packing tape all the way around a photograph frame. This will help you keep all packing paper in place around the frame and photograph.

3. Use Caution When Placing Framed Photographs in a Moving Truck

A framed photograph will absorb pressure more easily on its edge than lying flat. Thus, a framed photograph should be placed on its side – not flat – in a moving truck.

Furthermore, when you pack a moving truck, you should always place framed photographs in a spot where they won't move or fall over. You may even be able to wedge framed photographs between heavy objects to keep these photographs in place in a moving truck.

If you need additional assistance as you pack your framed photographs or other belongings, you may want to hire a professional moving company. With this business at your side, you can receive comprehensive support as you prep for moving day.

Lastly, a real estate agent can help you enjoy a seamless transition from one address to another. In addition to helping you map out the home selling or homebuying journey, a real estate agent can put you in touch with the best moving companies in your area.

Simplify the process of packing your framed photographs – use the aforementioned best practices, and you can quickly and effortlessly get your framed photographs ready for an upcoming move.

One of the toughest choices to make when selling a home can be choosing a bidder. Often because sellers don’t expect this to be a difficult decision! It seems like it would be straightforward. You might think you should accept the first offer or maybe you’re in the camp of accepting the highest bid. And while both of these choices are valid there are other factors to take into consideration. Factors that can make selling your home even easier and relatively hassle-free.

One of the biggest fears people have and one that really throws a wrench in the process is potential buyers backing out of a deal or asking for pricey repairs. And for this reason, I suggest looking closely at all of your bids to review the concessions and contingencies each contract contains as well as the type of financing each buyer will be utilizing.

For example, one thing to look for is earnest money. This is money in an escrow account either held by the real estate agent or the buyer and seller and shows the buyer’s commitment to their bid. It gives the buyer more time to sort out their financing but is also seen as a guard against the buyer walking away mid-agreement.

What is the stability of a buyer's financing? What institution is it coming from? Do a search online to learn more information about each buyer’s finance provider. A buyer may pay in cash, offering a larger down-payment or be pre-approved for a loan.

Sometimes buyers will also include a contingency in their contract to not begin payment until they have sold their own home. If this is something you are not comfortable with this bid might belong in your “No” pile despite a higher bid or down payment.

Are they asking you to cover any expenses? They may ask for the attorney review fee to be waived, inspection fees to be covered or costly repairs to be made before closing. Again, are you okay with covering these costs? Do the math to see if these requests bring down the value of the bid. Depending on how much of an investment they are asking for you to make this could create a less enticing bid.

Sometimes, choosing a bid is less about the numbers and more about convenience. If you are in the middle of shopping for a new home yourself, bidders who offer flexibility on the move in/out date could move to the top of your “Yes” list. Sometimes buyers want to keep furniture or appliances from a home, which could make moving a much lighter load.

If your head is spinning from all of these different factors to take into consideration when choosing a bid, that’s okay! This is why working with a real estate agent is so beneficial. Look to your agent for advice when weighing out the benefits of each bid and on making the final decision.
