Come moving day, there are always pieces of items that are considered fragile. These items have to be taken care of in the right manner to ensure that they are not damaged or broken during the whole moving process. To make sure that all the fragile items, which includes glassware, decorative items and so forth, we have some valuable tips for you to follow.
When it comes to packing fragile items in boxes, never ever leave spaces in between them. This only increases the chances that it could crash into each other and cause damage. Fill the spaces with foam, thick cotton or cloths. This will protect the fragile items from damaging or breaking.
Don’t overload the boxes. Glassware, such as plates, vases and these items weigh quite a bit. Overloading a box could result in the pressure becoming too much and it falling right from the bottom. Always go more less items in boxes and more boxes to carry them in.
Use newspaper, butter paper or even cloths to cover up and protect each piece of fragile item. This will add another layer of protection, as well as eliminating the prospect of these items being scratched.
Plastic bags are considered a no-go. They are not considered useful when it comes to protecting your fragile items. Boxes is the best and only way to go.
Now, we move onto items or furniture pieces, which have glass within them. This includes cabinets, cupboards and even lamps. When it comes to these type of items, always remove all the glass pieces inside. There is chance they could fall out during moving, break and you’ve lost it all.
However, if you cannot move them out of the items (so if they stuck on tightly or welled in) always tape the glass up to the walls and lock them down tightly. This will help secure the glass inside, ensuring it won’t come off during moving.
Mark the boxes. This way you know which boxes you have to be careful with when it comes to moving.
