My family was using a normal table (6 ft * 4 ft) with a same sized glass over it. I have planned to give ONLY the glass to one of my friends as I don't need it anymore. I am going to use a double cab for the transport. I want to think about a safe way of transporting it. Since it is a square shaped, there is a chance to break the corners. Any ideas please?
You can buy foam boards from a hardware store. Or better, you can just ask them for scrap foam boards that they are not using, and they will most probably give it to you for free. Then you can cut indentations to fit the sides/corners into the foam board. I would suggest taping cardboard around the glass so it is less susceptible to impact.
The other thing is you can wrap the glass with towels, and ducktape them.
Use a wooden surface with the size of the glass (or a little bigger) and attach the glass to it. You can use a sticky tape. Then wrap all this in cardboard. For extra protection you can use two wooden surfaces and put the glass between them.
If you want to protect it only from the edges then you can use only a frame to hold the glass not a whole surface. But if it is a whole wooden surface it will also protect from frontal impact.
