How to pack marble slabs, tiles, or countertops for moving?

Depending on the form and size of your marble items, you will either need crates and pallets or A-frames.

If you are shipping rather thick marble slabs or tiles, you will need to use wooden crates to pack them in:

  1. Line the bottom, the sides, and the top of the crate with Styrofoam sheets.
  2. If applicable, bubble wrap marble slabs or tiles before putting them in the crate.
  3. Place marble items into the crate and close the crate with staples on the bottom and screws on the top.
  4. If needed, put a metal banding around the crate.
  5. Place the crate on a pallet and fix it well on it using shipping straps.

In case you plan moving marble countertops or similarly shaped marble slabs, the best option for transporting them would be to use A-frames:

  1. Wrap each marble countertop in several layers of bubble wrap.
  2. Place each item carefully on the A-frame. Remember that marble countertops must always be carried in a vertical position, as carrying them in a flat position can result in their damage.
  3. Attach the countertop firmly to the A-Frame with shipping straps.
  4. You can also cover your shipment with moving blankets to provide additional protection to it.
