8 Things to Remember When Packing Breakables

Many people want to save money by packing their belongings themselves when they are moving. This can be a great idea, but only if you take the time to learn how to pack fragile items properly. To get started, you should follow these 8 tips:

1. Limit the weight of your boxes. Even if you hire a strong Brooklyn mover to load and unload your packed belongings, you want to try to limit the weight of each box to 50 pounds. This means larger boxes are used for lighter items, and heavier items are packed into smaller boxes. The weight limit ensures your belongings will be handled with care.

2. Use strong packing materials. You do not want the bottom of a questionable box to tear, or your tape to come undone, while you are carrying your items. Make sure to purchase or rent solid boxes from moving and packing companies.

3. Pack like-items together. Don’t pack heavy, un-breakables with fragile items. Also, try to pack items that will scratch separately from items that will break, as they require different packing techniques.

4. Use proper amounts of padding. For breakable items, start with three inches of packing material on the bottom of the box. Follow this rule throughout the box, leaving three inches of protective material around every item.

5. Stack Smartly. Heaviest items go into a box first. If you can, pack small boxes with only heavy items so that your Brooklyn movers will be able to properly stack boxes according to weight.

6. Fill all empty space. Items will shift during transport. Fill every crack with packing paper, styrofoam, bubble wrap, or soft personal items. However, be sure that you do not stuff the box beyond its capacity.

7. Wait to seal insured items. If you hire a Brooklyn moving company to transport your belongings, the driver of the truck will need to see any fragile, insured items, and make sure they are adequately packed before he allows them onto the truck. Save yourself time by leaving these boxes unsealed until they are approved.

8. Label appropriately. As always, clearly label your fragile items. Include a list of what is in the box, the direction the box should stand, and a large marking of, “fragile.”

Packing fragile items can be a bit unnerving for a novice. You want to make sure your cherished belongings arrive at their destination unharmed. However, if you take your time, and use proper materials and techniques, you can comfortably expect your items to survive your relocation.
