I'm moving in a couple of weeks (only fifteen minutes away) and I'm wondering how others moved their jetmax cubes. Did you wrap them up? Did you empty them or move them with the stuff in the drawers, etc.? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

I bought the "Saran Wrap" type stuff at lowes. We moved about 20 miles away from our previous home. I did not empty the drawers at all. Just wrapped and loaded them. I don't think any were damaged.

We have movers pack is (military), but here's what they do:

They put paper in the drawers so that the drawers and the contents don't rattle around. Then they put them in a box and pack some stuff around the box. Not much, and lightweight stuff, because those boxes get heavy FAST.

White laminate has a tendency to chip. And the cubes look great until they are chipped. Then they look horrible. Because I have so much furniture that is dinged up from too many moves, I wanted to protect them as much as possible.

I stuffed them so that nothing would move around but made sure that they were not too heavy. Used Saran Wrap from costco for my paper cubes. The cubes with drawers I just taped close with painter's tape. It was pretty easy!

I put them into a box with a cropper hopper on each side - kept from moving around!

Thanks guys! I'm going to look for some of that "wrap" from Lowe's and cross my fingers that nothing gets dinged...It would take an awful lot of boxes to put each cube into a box lol (or maybe I'm just lazy!)

Thanks for posting this. I was wondering the same thing since I'm getting ready to put everything in storage for a move.
