How To Pack Fragile Items When Moving

Moving your items from one place to another can feel like a very stressful time. This can be even more so when you have items that are breakable or very fragile. Wrapping them securely will help prevent any damage that may occur. For smaller items you can wrap them in paper or bubble wrap, or even your own towels and other household items like clean socks and clothing. Wrapping them securely before placing them in a box for moving can help keep them safe. For larger items that may involve a little more protection as they are not able to be boxed you can use one of your blankets and securely wrap it around the item. Even taping the corners down can help keep this secure. Large shipping plastic wrap can also come in handy if you choose to purchase this. With these tips, you should be able to have all of your items arrive safely and securely at the new address.

Wrapping Glass

It helps to wrap glass and eramic dishes in newspaper to help prevent them form scratches. Especially if those dishes are ornate. You may also want to fill any boxes with foam peanuts. These serve to remove the amount of space items can travel while inside. Filling empty spaces with a cushioning materilal will reduce the posssibility of finding broken items when you arrive at your destination.

Use Blankets To Cover

If you have wooden furniture, cover those items with heavy blankets and secure them in place. This will preserve the wood during your move from becoming scratched should it make contact with another item. It can be difficult to repair or refinish wooden furniture so that it matches.
