  1. Use the right type of packing material: Choose a material that will provide adequate cushioning for your fragile item, such as packing paper, bubble wrap, or foam sheets. Avoid using newspaper or tissue paper, as they may stain items and not provide enough protection.
  2. Use sturdy boxes: Choose a box that is sturdy and in good condition. Avoid using boxes that are worn or damaged, as they may not be able to withstand the weight or pressure of your fragile item. Packing 4 Moves can provide a full range of removals grade boxes
  3. Wrap the item carefully: Wrap the fragile item in several layers of packing material, making sure to cover all sides and corners. Avoid using excessive tape to secure the packing material in place, rather fold neatly to ensure maximum protection and minimal effort in unpacking.
  4. Separate items: If you are packing multiple fragile items, be sure to wrap each item separately and place them appropriately in their box, with balled up paper (crush) between items. This will help prevent them from bumping into each other during transportation.
  5. Label the box: Clearly label the box as “fragile” and if necessary, include arrows indicating which side should be facing up. This will help ensure that your fragile item is handled with care during transportation.
  6. Fill any gaps: Use packing material to fill any gaps in the box to prevent the item from moving around during transportation.
  7. Consider professional packing: If you are unsure about how to pack your fragile item, or if it is particularly valuable, consider using a professional packing service to ensure that it is properly protected.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your fragile items arrive at their destination safely and in one piece.
