I have hung a few. Most are still in boxes waiting to be hung. The paintings that I don't hang will be safely stacked up in a corner somewhere.
Moving requires that your paintings be packed well for the journey. They need to survive storage if that is where they end up.
Packing Your PaintingsI have found that UHaul carries the perfect boxes for my paintings. They usually are referred to as mirror boxes. They come in a few different sizes that seem to fit most painting sizes. For large paintings, use 2 or more boxes. Cut and tape them together to fit. You want the entire painting to be boxed so you can tape the top securely so it will lie flat.

TransportationWhen transporting your paintings, you can stack them on top of each other if you managed to keep the tops flat. Be careful in the UHaul trucks or other trucks that they are secure from falling down. Usually, if you are like me, there is plenty of other stuff to keep it all together.
I think you will find that if you take these preventive measures in packing your paintings, they will arrive intact and just like new.
