How to protect fragile items
Now that we have mentioned the necessary materials to protect your fragile items, it’s time to mention how to pack them properly. We will talk about some specific fragile items that require more attention in packing them.
Artworks are not just an expensive paint from a famous painter. They can be paintings that you found beautiful to obtain or even your creations.
Whatever they are, you should take special care to pack them properly for your move. As they are fragile decorations, you need to protect them by using frames.
This way, you will avoid the surface from coming in contact with anything that can damage the paint. Moreover, they will protect them from being moved and knocked around inside the box. Don’t forget to mark with label stand that it is a box with fragile artwork.
The old and heavy furniture of your ancestors needs special care for moving it. For efficient furniture removals there are some helpful moving tips to follow. To ensure their safe transportation you should disassemble them, if it’s feasible, and cover each piece with moving blankets. For extra protection, you can place an additional protective layer using bubble wrap. This way, the moving will be easier and you can rest assured that it will arrive intact at your new home.
If you have special or rare plants, or just ordinary plants, transporting them is always difficult. As they are beautiful and you certainly want them to decorate your new home, you should take special care for their transportation. First, to make their transport easier, avoid watering them for two or three days before moving them.
This will greatly reduce their weight. Next, you need to find strong moving boxes that can support their weight. Then, stabilize the boxes with tape, to make sure they don’t open. Finally, don’t forget to open a few holes in the box so the plants can breathe. Upon arrival, unpack these boxes first to keep your plants healthy.
If you have a fragile China as a heritage from your great-grandparents, you surely want to protect it from damage. As it can be easily damaged, it requires special protection to move it. For your peace of mind, follow the steps below! First, fill it with paper. Then, cover it with plenty of protective wrapping, such as blankets, bubble wrap and pack it in a box. Don’t pack it too tightly, as it can lead to breaking it. You can do the same for other fragile items, such as ceramics. And don’t forget to mention with label stand that it is a fragile box.
TVs, monitors, gaming devices, and other electronics also require special care for their safe transport. If you are one of the few who has kept their original packing boxes, you are ready! Place them safely inside each box and they will arrive intact at your new home.
Otherwise, in the first instance you have to remove their wires and bond them with a grip, so they won’t get lost. Then, cover each electronic device with bubble wrap and secure it with packing tape. Prefer to use static-free bubble wrap to ensure they’ll work perfectly. This way, you will easily and safely move them to your new home!
