3 Moving Tips for Packing Fragile Items, Ewa, Hawaii

Packing is the first and arguably most difficult step of moving. Not only do you need to transport your whole life from the old home, but you also have to pack it all carefully, so it fares well in transit. Here are some tips for bringing fragile items from one place to another without any chips, cracks or breaks.

How to Pack Fragile Items for Moving

1. Use Materials You Already Have

For many people, it’s not necessary to purchase bubble wrap and packing peanuts to protect delicate items while moving. Instead, use items you already have that also need to be packed. Gather together soft fabrics like cotton tees, blankets, and towels that you can use to cushion fragile items inside boxes. This way you’ll pack both items and save money.

2. Pack Snugly

However, it’s better to pack everything snugly to prevent movement as items get jostled during transit. As long as they’re all wrapped up tight with some cushion between them, they shouldn’t bump against each other.

3. Label Clearly

Once you’ve packed up a delicate item, label it clearly as fragile and indicate with an arrow which side of the box is top and bottom. These precautions will inform your movers to take extra care with these boxes when loading and unloading them.
