Tips for Packing Fragile Items: Protect Your Valuables During the Move

Smart Move™ Moving and Storage understands the importance of protecting your fragile items during a move. Follow these tips to ensure your valuables arrive safely at your new home in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Use the Right Packing Materials

Use sturdy boxes specifically designed for moving fragile items. To provide cushioning, wrap delicate items individually with bubble wrap or packing paper.

Pack Fragile Items Strategically

Pack heavier items at the bottom of the box and lighter items on top. Fill empty spaces in the box with packing material to prevent items from shifting during transport.

Label Boxes Correctly

Label boxes containing fragile items as “Fragile” to alert movers to handle them carefully. Use arrows to indicate how the box should be oriented to avoid mishandling.

Pack Electronics Carefully

Remove batteries from electronic devices to prevent damage from leaking batteries. Use original packaging when available, or wrap electronics in bubble wrap and secure with tape.

Secure Glass and Mirrors

Use masking tape to create an “X” shape across the glass surface to prevent shattering. Place cardboard over the glass surface and wrap it with bubble wrap for protection.

Pack Plates Vertically

Wrap each plate individually with packing paper and stack them vertically in the box. Place crumpled paper between each plate for added cushioning.
