How to pack a dining room table and chairs for moving

While there are no specific packing guidelines for our Van Service, you can follow the steps below and find out how to move a dining room set in the best way:

Packing a table

  • Clean the table by polishing the surfaces.
  • Dismantle as much as possible. Unscrew the legs, cover in bubble wrap, and pack separately.
  • Wrap each leg in bubble wrap, whether or not they were detached.
  • If the table top is removable, wrap it in a moving blanket.
  • If the table has a glass or marble top, remove and cover it in several layers of bubble wrap, then cover with a moving blanket. You can add a cardboard layer between the bubble wrap and blanket for more protection.
  • Lean the tabletop against the side of the truck and secure it well with ropes or straps.

FAQ on how to move a dining table and chairs

What is the easiest way to move a dining table?
If you are wondering how to move a dining table to another location, consider reserving a dedicated van. With our Van Delivery Service, you get an entire vehicle just for your load. When preparing to move the dining table, we recommend removing the legs first and packing them separately. Use bubble wrap and moving blankets to cover all surfaces and protect your table.
How much does it cost to move a dining room table?
Moving a dining room set with our Van Delivery option starts from 0.48 €/km. Our automated platform calculates the cost for you in an instant. Insert the collection and delivery addresses and shipment details to see how much it would cost you to move your dining room set by van. Please note that the charges for using ferries or toll-paying tunnels are not included in the platform quote.
How do you move a heavy dining room table by yourself?
You should not try and move a heavy dining table by yourself as you risk injury. Also, do not drag the table across the floor, as this can damage both the table and the floor. There are a few ways you can move and load your heavy dining room table into the van:
  • Get help from family or friends: Arrange at least 4 people around the table to lift and carry it. If the table legs were not removed, carry the table horizontally.
  • Use a ramp: Place a ramp at the rear of the van and carry the table up into the van.
  • Use a forklift: This is the safest option if you have access to such an item at the loading site.
  • Request a tail-lift: We can arrange for the van hired to move your dining room set to have a tail-lift to make loading and unloading easier. Please let us know of any additional equipment you need when placing your order. Find out more about tail-lift deliveries.
How do I move a large glass dining table?
Follow the steps below when moving a glass top dining table:
  • Remove the glass top, wrap it with packing paper and secure it with tape.
  • Be careful not to allow the tape to come in direct contact with the glass surface, as this will leave a sticky residue.
  • Cover the wrapped tabletop with bubble wrap and secure with tape.
  • You can use moving blankets or an appropriately-sized telescopic box for added protection.
  • Load it carefully into the van.
How should I arrange dining chairs inside the van?
If possible, remove the chair legs and pack them separately in boxes. Whether or not you remove the legs, wrap them in bubble wrap. If you are moving the dining chairs fully assembled, stack them in twos. Place one chair in the van with the legs on the floor and stack a second chair upside-down on top of it, with the seats touching. Secure the chairs together with rope and make sure they are stable.
What size van will I need for moving my dining room set?
It depends on the size and number of items you have, but generally, a curtain-side van would suffice to move your dining table and chairs. If you will be moving more items at the same time, we can arrange a larger van to perform the service.
We offer two van sizes:
  • Box van: 465 x 165 x 180 cm or 13 cubic metres and 1000 kg capacity
  • Curtain-side van: 410 x 210 x 230 cm or 19 cubic metres and 1000 kg capacity (with tail-lift only 700 kg)
If you are unsure how to move a heavy dining table and chairs, please send us a message via chat, and our specialists will give you personalised recommendations based on your requirements.
