Essential Tips for Packing Fragile Items
If you think that you don’t have a lot of fragile items to pack, go look in your kitchen cabinets. We all have them and assuming you’re already spending a lot of money your move, you don’t really want to spend more replacing the things that broke on the way. So take a look at some essential tips for packing fragile items.
Packing Fragile Items Tip #1
Sounds simple, right? But with all the things that you have to do, it’s only natural that certain to-do items might get pushed off. This should not be one of them. You’ll want to take all of the time you can get packing up your breakable items to make sure that they receive the care and protection they’ll need for the journey.
Take whatever mental preparation you need and then set out for the right equipment. You’ll want to be well stocked on study boxes, cardboard, packing tape, bubble wrap, packing paper, and more bubble wrap. You’re going to want to lay out all of your supplies and have a large section of floor space or a big table for this project.
Packing Fragile Items Tip #2
Your fragile items have needs too. Instead of trying to save time and space by filling up one big box with all of your breakable objects, you’re going to want to split them up. Make sure you have an ample supply of boxes in all shapes and sizes and be sparing with what you pack. If you have one ceramic bowl that is really important to you and was passed down through the family don’t hesitate to give it its own box.
Packing Fragile Items Tip #3
Know Your Packing Supplies
Regular newspaper can stain china dishes but will be fine for regular glassware. Too much bubble wrap can put too much pressure on your items if you pack the entire box with it. Be wary of what you’re using and how much you use of your packing supplies to have the most success with preserving your items.
Packing Fragile Items Tip #4
Not every fragile item you have can be packed the same way and whether there is a right way or wrong way to pack them, there is a better way.
