3 Tips for Packing Fragile Items, Rochester, New York

When you’re trying to prepare for a moving company to come and help you transport your belongings to your new home, one of the toughest challenges is figuring out how to pack your fragile items. By their very nature, they’re easily breakable, so you have to know how to protect them when they’re being jostled around in a moving truck. Fortunately, there are ways to protect your items during the move. Below, learn how to pack your fragile belongings properly.   

3 Ways to Pack Your Fragile Items Safely 

1. Prepare the Box 

Before placing anything inside the box, line the bottom with packing paper or a blanket for cushioning. Save some packing paper to top it off after you’ve placed your fragile items inside. Label the box with the word “fragile” on every side so that the moving company will handle it carefully. While you’re at it, note what’s inside it so that the unpacking process can be more organized when you get there. 

2. Use the Packing Supplies

The former could leave ink or grime on your items, and the latter may slip off and leave your items vulnerable because it can’t be reliably secured. Once you have the bubble wrap and packing paper, make sure you also have strong packing tape. 

3. Leave Space 

As you set your fragile items in the box, insert some packing paper between them. If they’re not touching each other, then they’re less likely to crack each other. Be careful not to overpack or try too hard to make everything fit tightly together in one box. In fact, make sure there’s still about an inch of space left at the top of the box when you close it. If the moving company has to place another box on top of it, the top box won’t press against the fragile items in the bottom one, which could crack them.
