3 Fragile Items & How to Pack Them

1. Dishes

It is recommended to use a dish pack. Dish packs are a double walled box that is designed to handle the weight and protection of breakables. It is also recommended to wrap each item in packing paper individually. If you feel more comfortable with a smaller box that is less cumbersome, that is fine too. However, the smaller boxes are not double walled and therefore do not provide the extra strength that a double walled dish pack provides. The egg theory is the best way to explain it. The Egg Theory in the Moving Industry means that the strongest point of anything fragile is from top to bottom.  So, plates, bowls, cups, glasses, glass pan lids should be packed standing up in the box rather than laying down.

2. Glasses  (The Egg Theory)

3. Picture Frames

It can be difficult to find the proper box to pack larger pictures or mirrors. Ask the experts at Chaz Moving how and where to get these boxes and how to pack them. This can save you valuable time and ensure that your cherished belongings can be moved safely and efficiently.

No matter what breakable items you treasure, don’t forget to label the containers with the room they go to and what is inside. Moving boxes can easily seem identical once they’re closed, and you may not be the only one handling your items.
