Steps to pack a cuckoo clock for relocation or storage:
- Disassemble: If possible, disassemble the clock by removing the pendulum and weights to make it easier to pack and prevent damage during transit.
- Gather supplies: You will need a large, sturdy cardboard box, packing materials such as bubble wrap and packing peanuts, and tape.
- Wrap the clock: Wrap the clock, including the removable parts, in bubble wrap or protective material, making sure to cover all parts, including the pendulum, weights, and hooks.
- Place in the box: Place the wrapped clock in the box, and fill any empty spaces with packing peanuts to prevent shifting during transit.
- Label the box: Label the box with “Fragile” and “This End Up” to ensure that the movers handle it with care.
Note: If the clock has a glass front, you should also wrap it in bubble wrap and place it in a separate box for added protection.
