Packing Fragile Items
Figuring out how to pack your delicate, breakable and/or valuable possessions can be one of the most challenging parts of moving. However, if you pack your fragile items properly, you can ensure they make the journey safe and sound.
First of all, begin by putting some kind of packing material in the bottom of the moving box you plan to use. For packing materials, you could use bubble wrap, tissue paper, packing peanuts, newspaper, or even towels, sheets, blankets and pillows. If you choose to use newspaper, use caution with valuable items because the print may rub off onto packaged items. As an alternative to newspapers as packing material, consider purchasing packing paper, which is designed for this very purpose.
Next, carefully wrap each fragile item in the packing material. Put especially fragile items into small individual boxes before placing them into the moving box.
When you are putting items into a moving box, put the heaviest items on the bottom, and stack the items progressively lighter. Be very careful not to pack anything on top of something that may break. Do not pack heavy items like books with fragile objects. After each layer, fill all the gaps with packing material. Once the box is packed, put more packing material on top before closing the box. This will keep the items from shifting while they are being moved, and will also help keep the moving box firm.
Write "fragile" on the outside of the moving box, and make sure to write which side of the box should be kept up so that the heavier items on the bottom don't end up on the top and crush the lighter items. Label the outside of the moving box with what is inside and what room it should go to in your new home.
Pack any electronic equipment back in their original boxes, if you have them. If you do not have the original box, find a moving box that is slightly larger than the item while still allowing a little room for whatever packing material you are using. Wrap or box each item or pieces of items separately.
If you are moving mirrors, framed artwork, or pictures, put packing tape over the glass in an x or star pattern, so the glass will stay in place if it should happen to break. Wrap unframed artwork in bubble wrap packing material. Pack your mirrors, artwork and pictures in flat picture/ mirror boxes that are only slightly bigger than the item. If you still have the original boxes for your mirrors, use them, along with packing material. As with other fragile items, make sure to put fragile on the outside of the moving box.
Using these packing tips will help keep your fragile items safe, and hopefully make your move smooth and easy.
