What You Need to Know About Packing Fragile Items: Advice From Rochester's Top Moving Company , Rochester, New York

Planning a move is stressful enough without having to worry about whether or not your expensive china will make it to your new home in one piece. Becker Movers, located in Rochester, NY, is a moving company that specializes in both commercial and residential moving, and they’ve developed a system that ensures that even the most fragile home goods make it through the moving process unscathed. They're here to offer a few packing tips to help protect your possessions:

  • Wrap Everything Individually: It will take longer to go through each individual item, but it will be worth it when it comes time to unpack. Fill every bowl, vase, cup, or anything else with an opening with generous amounts of tissue paper or newspaper. Then, cover it in bubble wrap and secure it with a single strip of tape.
  • Find The Right Box: Sort through your packing supplies, and find the boxes that are made out of thick, heavy material and don’t have any damage. It is alright to use larger boxes for things like dinner plates (make sure that you don’t make it too heavy), but use smaller boxes for your more delicate or cherished items.
  • Pack With Care: Before you start, cover the bottom of the box with a layer of packing supplies. Put the heavier pieces on the bottom and the lightest on the top. Once you have everything in the box, fill any gaps with newspaper or packing peanuts. You want everything to be secure so that your belongings don’t shift during transport.
  • Ready To Move: Once your fragile items are properly packed and the boxes are taped shut, label them as fragile in as bold of writing as possible. Instruct your movers to take that label seriously and treat your belongings with care.

Whether you’re moving down the street or across the country, Becker Movers knows how to get all of your belongings there safely. Visit their website to find out more about their moving services, or call them at (585) 458-5480.
