When you wrap your items for safe transport, you help to prevent breakage and maintain their condition during shipment. We have tips to help you package items and wrap them for safe transport. 

Create a cushion base

Create cushioning at the bottom of your packaging box by using blankets, bubble wrap, or packaging foam. The cushioning will add an extra layer of protection for fragile items. Use the right type of box and the correct size for each item. You can also use a double box for added protection.

Wrap each piece individually

Wrap each item individually, especially glass and antique items. Use bubble wrap, packing paper, packaging foam, or white newsprint paper. Secure each item with packaging tape and other secure packaging materials to ensure their safety during transport and storage. Ensure the items are secured tightly but avoid wrapping delicate items such as glassware too tight as this might cause pressure that leads to breakage. 

Position heavy items on the bottom

Heavy items should be placed at the bottom of the box. Placing the heavy items at the bottom will help you to prevent them by breaking or crushing smaller items. It also helps you to keep the box secure during the move. 

Make sure that your box is secured by taping it properly with packing tape. The box you use should be sturdy enough to hold these heavier items. You may need more protection for a long-distance move as boxes are likely to shift and be handled more so don’t forget to add cushioning and other protective materials at the bottom of the box.
