Essential Ways To Pack Fragile Items

Let’s Get Ready To Pack

A moving process can be a stressful situation, even more, when the packing process is on your own. When it comes to packing fragile items, that’s the most nerve-wracking and time-consuming part of it all. Being concerned about if your valuable, fragile belongings will make it through the moving process usually takes away the excitement and peace of mind during a moving.

When packing, having the best packing practices will determine if your fragile items will be protected during the process. So, let’s dive into some of the most important tips and essential ways to pack your fragile items before your moving day arrives. 

Get Your Boxes, Tape and Packing Paper

Packing materials play such an important role. Getting all the materials needed to pack all your fragile items is the very first step to ensure their protection. Thicker and sturdier boxes are the best ones to pack and protect your belongings. It is also recommended to get smaller boxes to avoid items from shifting around during the moving process. 

Make sure you also get packing tape, packing paper, and soft packing materials as they’re much needed for packing fragile items.

Secure The Bottom of The Box

Before starting to pack, make sure you secure the bottom of the box with extra packing tape strips to support all the weight of its contents. Also, place soft packing materials such as packing paper or bubble foam at the bottom of it.  

Heaviest Items Goes At The Bottom 

Make sure that bigger and heaviest items go at the bottom and the smallest items at the top when you’re packing. This will ensure smaller fragile items don’t get smashed during the whole process. 

Never Forget Wrap and Fill With Packing Paper

As we will pack fragile items, plates, glasses, and decorative items are not an exception. It is important to make sure that every item is properly wrapped. The hollow spaces are also filled with packing paper to soften vibrations during the process. 

If you consider some items are way more delicate than others, pack them in separate smaller boxes instead of stacking them with other items.

Don’t Forget Labels!

Nobody can go wrong with a fragile labeled box. Make sure all the boxes are clearly labeled and placed separately from the other packed items. This way, during the moving process, they’re handled carefully and are placed in a different part of the moving unit.
