Tips for Packing Fragile Items

Moving across town can be stressful, especially when you have fragile items to pack. Here are some tips to help you pack fragile items safely and securely:

1. Gather the right materials: You’ll need packing paper/bubble wrap, packing tape, and boxes that are the right size for the items you’re packing.

2. Wrap each item individually: Wrap each item in packing paper or bubble wrap and secure it with packing tape. Stacking plates, bowls, or glasses increases the odds they’ll break each other.

3. Label each box: Clearly label each box with the contents and the words “Fragile” or “Handle with Care” in large writing to make sure anyone moving these boxes knows to take extra care when handling them.

4. Place items in the box carefully: Place the items in the box carefully and fill any empty spaces with packing paper or bubble wrap to prevent items from shifting during transit. If you have a lot of empty space, use towels, sheets, or pillows to fill all the space.

5. Seal the box securely: Seal the box securely with packing tape. Don’t be stingy with your fragile items; if that box opens during the move it can be bad news.
