You spent so much time keeping your kids from “playing” with vases and picture frames. Now that you’re moving into your family’s new dream home, how can you get those fragile items into your new home without them being smashed to smithereens in the process?
Here is a guide for safely packing your fragile items:
Use original packaging or new boxes for all fragile items. The structural integrity of a box is vitally important to protecting your fragile items. It’s also important to ensure that the cardboard boxes are of good quality, strong and dry.
A good amount of soft white packing paper is important to have on hand when packing fragile items, as it provides additional protective layers when packing your items.
Bubble wrap is one of the best materials to provide an extra layer of protection to your fragile items.
Here is a list of some common fragile items and the best way to protect them while moving:
When your fragile items are well-protected, your entire moving process will run more smoothly. Hiring a quality mover that will take care of your precious items can ease your mind that your fragile items are protected.
Another great option would be to buy insurance that specifically protects these items or move your fragile items in your own vehicle to ensure you know their whereabouts at all times.
