Gather original cases and boxes from your storage rooms and use them to pack the fragile items carefully.

Gather Free Boxes And Packaging Supplies: Many businesses offer boxes and packaging supplies for free that they otherwise would send for recycling. Gather cartons from such businesses and start packing your items.

Start Packing Immediately: Once you gather all the proper packaging supplies start packing immediately without causing any further delays.

Take adequate time to pack, and do not pack in a hurry, as it might mess up the process and cause damage to your fragile items.

Use Vacuum Wraps And Bubble Wraps: Use a vacuum wrap and bubble wrap to fill in empty spaces of the boxes you will be using to pack your fragile items.

They should be steady even inside the box as empty spaces cause the items to move and may cause damage during transit. So fill In the empty spaces of the carton with wraps to avoid movement and breakage.

Use Seal Tapes: Use seal tapes to pack and seal the items carefully. The sealing tape will keep the box from opening and items from falling out during moving and transit.

Home Appliances: When it comes to packing home appliances, we suggest it would be better if you had the original packaging. It already comes with wrapping material and cushioning, so you will not have to get new packaging materials.

But if you do not happen to have the original cartons, use a suitable size box, fill it with cushioning and vacuum wraps, and pack them carefully to avoid them from getting damaged.

Disassemble Loose Parts: We suggest you disassemble the loose parts of your fragile items instead of packing the whole item all at once.

Once disassembled, fragile items are easier to pack and carry, and the chances of them getting damaged during the move decrease threefold.

Label And Mark Them: To avoid facing inconveniences and to prevent your fragile items from getting damaged, Label and mark each of the fragile items separately so that you can handle them during the removal process accordingly.

Unlabeled boxes are handled just like other regular boxes. Whereas boxes with fragile items written on them need extra care, the removalists use specific tools and equipment specifically designed to handle fragile items and prevent them from getting damaged.

Keep Boxes With Fragile Items Separate: Do not mix regular boxes with boxes of fragile items as it would only create possibilities of inconveniences and chaos. Mark each of the boxes and Keep each of them separate to prevent them from getting damaged.

Fill In The Empty Spaces: Make sure to fill in the empty spaces inside the cartons to prevent the items from falling out or crashing into each other.

Empty spaces tend to damage the items during the loading and moving process as the items may move due to the empty spaces inside the box.

So make sure to fill in the empty spaces with packaging paper, shredded paper, newspaper, bubble wrap, etc., while packing the fragile items to prevent them from getting damaged during the move.

Wrap Each Box And Item With Adhesive Or Seal Tape: Make sure to pack the items and the cartons with seal tape or adhesive tape. It will help give your items extra protection during the move.
