Tips for Fragile Parcels

One of the most stressful aspects of moving is packing fragile goods. It makes sense to worry that these products might break or be damaged in transit. Your fragile belongings should be handled with additional care because moving involves a lot of handling of boxes, so you need to make sure they are safe and secure.

How you pack your delicate belongings is the first step towards protecting them. The tools and methods you employ should be chosen with extra care. If you take extra care and attention to pack the most fragile objects properly, you may transport even the most delicate items without causing any damage.

Here are some quick ways to safely pack your delicate items:

Organize ahead of time. It takes time to pack up the priceless crystal, porcelain, and other breakables. Rushing is not appropriate here. If you are not employing movers, begin packing these belongings carefully well before moving day and make the decision as to whether they will be transported by moving truck or by personal vehicle.

The top and bottom boxes should be lined with padding. Each box should first have a layer of paper or bubble wrap at the bottom. When boxes are moved or stacked, the additional padding will prevent them from breaking. Use your tablecloths or dish towels as protective layers when packing kitchen utensils or dishware. You'll have fewer items to pack later on as well. Before taping the box shut, add a top layer of packing material to keep your items secure.

For the appropriate equipment. You'll need sturdy moving boxes in a range of sizes, along with wrapping paper, bubble wrap, flexible cardboard, scissors, and packing tape. A sizable table is also a must for setting up your belongings and packing. You might require an additional set of hands for larger objects.

When filling boxes, it's simple to overdo it, so keep an eye on the weight. Boxes that are too full risk sagging and breaking. Use plenty of tape reinforcement. Use strong tape at the top, bottom, and each opening.

Understand what you'll be bringing and how to pack it. While both flat-screen TV can be fragile, they require very different packing strategies. Research the best methods for packing each item, and make preparations in advance to ensure you have enough bubble wrap on moving day.

Packing the popular fragile products as follows:

Plates: Plates should be packaged upright in small to medium boxes that are lined on the bottom and top with crumpled packing paper. Each plate should be bubble-wrapped and taped. Between the standing plates, place some paper. Do not cram the box too full. If you're packing yourself or using our packing service, You Move Me offers dish packs for sale.

Glasses: Glasses should be individually wrapped in packing paper, with large pieces of crumpled paper placed inside to reduce empty space. Provide enough packing paper on the top and bottom to line small or medium-sized boxes. Paper is also layered in the areas surrounding the glasses to minimize the movement of the things inside the box. The heavier objects should go at the bottom of the box, while the lighter stuff should go on top.

Lamps: Lamps and lamp shades should be packed individually with plenty of paper (flat side down). If necessary, bases can be packed in a sizable box with the appropriate amount of bubble wrap.

Frames: Picture frames should be set upright if they are larger than 8 inches and placed in small to medium boxes lined with paper, with crumpled paper inserted between each piece. Frames should be packaged on paper. To prevent objects from shifting around in the box, cover frames with extra packing paper. Paintings and photographs more than 3 feet in size should be moved separately and safeguarded with a moving blanket and plastic wrap.

Flat Screen Television: Flat-screen TVs can be challenging to pack. Start by disconnecting all cords and attachments, including stand legs, and place them in a box with a label that is easy to read. Secure the screen with packing tape after wrapping it in a nice moving blanket. Finally, put it inside the box and tape it shut. Check to see if the box fits your TV properly.

Let your movers know which boxes include fragile items lastly. Like the dish packs and mirror/picture frame packs that Namaste Cargo Nepal has in stock, most moving firms have specialty boxes for fragile objects.
