You should be OK in a climate controlled building with a normal coat of wax as a little extra protection, but it's not needed. But that isn't as important as how the items are wrapped. I prefer to cover the finished furniture items plain news print paper right off the roll. Your local paper will sell end rolls to you. Don't use news papers that have soy ink on them, it will transfer off the page. Avoid plastic on a finish it may stick or leave an imprint when excess heat is present. As for moving pads, they are fine so long as they are clean and dry, some have moisture from being laid on a lawn somewhere. After the paper wrap then a blanket or box is fine, if there is a chance of great humidity, I would add a big plastic bag and tape shut to control the possible dampening of the wood and finish. To conclude, paper first, then a plastic bag, then the pad or a box. Do not tape the paper to the furniture.
