If you are moving house or you need to transport breakable items because you want to offer them as gifts, you surely know that you will need o pay special attention during the packing process. Here are some tips for you to make sure that your fragile items will travel to their destination intact:

  • Use the right box or boxes – your breakable items will need to go into separate boxes. The boxes need to be of the highest quality, sturdy and resistant to shocks and also of the most suitable size to accommodate your items and to hold them firmly;
  • Use the right wrap – in the past, fragile items used to be wrapped into multiple layers of paper for protection, but today’s packaging technologies offer much safer methods, such as bubble wraps that protect your items from shocks with tiny, air-filled blisters. You can also add some extra protection with the help of a suitably sized, soft T-shirt wrapped around the item;
  • Separate fragile items – if you are packing multiple items into one box, wrap each item into bubble wrap and/or cloth and separate the items with cushion foam or shock-absorbing granules for even more safety from impact.
