Protect the corners
Their edges and corners of your crockery are susceptible to breakage and can get easily damaged during transportation. That’s why it’s important you wrap them with a lot of bubble wraps and crumpled papers as much as you can. This will provide extra cushioning to the item and protect it during movement.
Pack in the right order
Placing things in appropriate order is necessary in boxes. Start packing the boxes by laying down the heaviest items first such as trays or plates at the bottom, and then place the light-weight items such as glasses or mugs on the top half of the box.
Pad the boxes
Ensure there’s no empty space in the moving box that contains your fragile stuff. Use a lot of padding materials such as crumpled paper, bubble wraps and towels, to safely cushion your fragile stuff. Shake the box to see if you hear noise or feel any movement and stuff additional packing paper in the gaps to make it tight. During the move, this acts as a shock-absorbing material that protects your stuff during bumps and turns.
Seal and label
Whichever boxes house your most delicate stuff, mark or label them as ‘Fragile’ or ‘Handle with care’ so that the movers are aware they need to extra careful when handling them. Seal the box with tape and set them aside in one corner of your room away from the other boxes.
