Over the years, you acquire many things. Some items possess financial value while others invoke memories that can never be replaced. Unfortunately, all too often these belongings become damaged when you move. Whether you are preparing to move across town or across the country, you should employ the following tips for moving fragile items.
1. Getting Started Early
Packing fragile items is not something that should ever be rushed. It takes time to properly pack belongings such as fine china. During the days leading up to the move, prepare to be very busy. It is not advised to put off packing these items during this time. If possible, begin the process in advance.
2. Tools Are Key
Tools help us work smarter instead of harder. Being armed with resources such as bubble wrap, scissors, and packing tape can help save you time and energy. When you work with a team of professionals, you will find all the tools necessary are readily available
3. Tips for Your Glasses
Glasses are under particular stress of the possibility of damage. To start the packing, stuff the larger ones with packing paper as this reduces empty space. Next, wrap each one individually. Heavier glasses should be packed at the bottom of the box, and adding layers can help best utilise your moving space.
4. The Secret to Packing Plates
Plates are another common belonging to break during the move. There is a secret that can significantly reduce this risk, and that is vertical packing. Use a medium box, and line it with packing paper on both the top and bottom. Furthermore, place packing paper in between each plate. Just make sure you don’t over pack the box. Professional removalists often have access to dish packs to make this task a simple one.
5. Dealing With Antiques and Collectibles
There is not a single technique that encompasses the variety of ways in which antiques and collectibles should be packed. For starters, covering the item in bubble wrap provides a protective shell, and securing the box efficiently with high-endurance packing tape is also advised.
6. Use Labels
Once you get everything moved into your new home or office. Otherwise, you will be surrounded by a disorganised mess without the knowledge of which containers enclose your breakables. Taking the few seconds it takes slapping a label on a box can save you hours as you unpack.
7. Professional Help is Your Best Assurance
You likely don’t move often. While this is a good thing, it also means you probably do not have much experience when it comes to safely packing and transporting your valuable fragile belongings. Our staff is knowledgeable in all things moving, and we are here to use.
