How to Avoid Frustrations When Moving Fragile Items
Have you ever broken a glass or a plate with just a small bump? That's how fragile glassware can be. That is why you should give them more attention when packing. But then glassware is not the only fragile items in the household. So, you must also look into them when packing for the move. For instance, electronic appliances are best packed in their original packaging. However, many get rid of the boxes and the original polystyrene foam casing after purchase. So if this is your case, you can get shallow boxes instead. But before boxing the devices and appliances you should put plenty of padding around them. This will protect the appliances from damage while in transit. If you are the type who collects antiques and other delicate items, you should wrap the pieces with a lot of bubble wraps and tape them securely to prevent any accidental drops and bumps from damaging them. Glasses and cups, of course, need to be filled with newspaper or tissue so it will get sufficient cushion while in transit. Each should be wrapped individual with a couple of layers of bubble wrap so it will not easily get broken. The bottom line is fragile items need sufficient cushion in between spaces and around each item. Then fragile items would also require the right type of boxes. Aside from getting the right sizes, all boxes should be sturdy as well. And all empty spaces should be filled so shaking and bumping inside the box would be avoided and damage would be prevented as well.
