What’s the Best Way to Pack Fragile Items when Moving?
When it comes to moving to a new house, and you have fragile items, an additional level of consideration and packaging is a must. For people who have valuables and need a high standard of service, Anthony Ward Thomas has a dedicated packing service available.
However, if you’re doing the packing yourself – what’s the best way to pack fragile items when preparing for a relocation?
How Do You Pack Fragile Items When Moving?
First thing you should do is download a home inventory app and log everything in your house. These apps are usually free or cheap, and you can find them at the iStore or Google Play. Then you’ll need to set aside every item you consider as fragile or expensive. Save these items in a separate folder in your inventory app.
Fragile items need additional packaging and must be kept separate from larger furniture and appliances. Anything glass should have several layers of bubble wrap both inside and outside of the specific piece. Then you’ll need to layer more bubble wrap inside the box, so no two items are touching. Even the slightest bump can cause glass objects to crack if there’s contact inside the box.
Please remember to be mindful of the packaging materials and tape you use for this part of the process. Certain wrapping can damage the face of paintings, and this initial layer needs to have a non-stick coating. You then need to place a protective layer around the object, such as sturdy cardboard or polystyrene if you can find it.
Unfortunately, there’s no way of completely safeguarding your possessions unless you have years of experience in relocations. Luckily, Anthony Ward Thomas has a dedicated packing service.
