Nothing will ruin your move like breaking one of your most prized possessions in the process. Whether it’s an antique that has been in the family for generations or breakable décor, no one wants to find that any of their belongings have sustained damage during the relocating process. It is important that you take the proper precautions necessary to keep your fragile items safe. Good Time Moving & Storage is here to share some packing tips to help you keep your most fragile items safe during your next move.
How to Pack & Move Breakable Items
Many of your belongings would probably be difficult to damage during a move. However, you probably have plenty items that could easily sustain damage during a move if you don’t take the proper steps necessary to protect them. Here are some of the best ways to protect those fragile items you have during your move.
– Make Preparations: You don’t want to be stuck on moving day without the supplies that you need to keep your belongings safe. You need to plan ahead to ensure you have everything you are going to need. You should also decide which valuables you will be putting in the moving truck and which ones you would rather keep close to you in your vehicle.
– Use Good Boxes: We can’t stress enough how important it is to have good quality boxes to pack your valuables in. If your boxes are made from cheap cardboard, they won’t be able to hold up to the moving process. Aside from quality boxes, you are going to want plenty of bubble wrap, scissors, packing tape and packing paper to make sure everything is properly packed away.
– Label Moving Boxes: Labels will be your saving grace during the moving process. Not only will detailed labels of what is inside your boxes help you find your items once you are in your new place but labeling your boxes as fragile will help to save those valuables that you don’t want damaged during the move. This will help your movers know which boxes should be handled with extra care.
– Know How to Pack It: Not all fragile items are packed the same way. You won’t be packing your glass plates the same way that you will pack the artwork that is found on your walls. Know how to pack each of your items so that they are kept safe during transport.
