When it comes to moving and packing your fragile items, there are a few things you need to know to keep them safe. First, you don’t want to put too much into one box as that makes it easier for your items to bulge out of them. You also want to get boxes of all different sizes so that you can fit different items inside of them. Finally, plastic wrap and bubble wrap is a great way to keep all of your items safe and prevent damage in case of an accident.
- You need to pack like a professional if you want your fragile lamps and glassware to make it from point A to B.
- For odd-shaped items, be generous with the boxes. Particularly fragile, irreplaceable heirlooms deserve a box to themselves.
- If you opt for plastic stretch wrap, use a moving vehicle or storage area with climate control if you won’t be immediately heading to your new home, as moisture can build up.
“Don’t overpack each box and hope that applying extra packing tape will keep it covered.”
