by Moving Now Movingnow

Whatever the nature of the move is, it is glass items that tend to suffer damage as a result of careless packing and improper handling. These delicate items endure the most and being expensive, are a loss that drains you financially. Glassware mostly forms decorative items or kitchen articles. Every household has a huge volume of items made from glass and despite our care and attention; a slight mishandling can lead to their breakage. 

Dealing with these delicate items requires utmost care. When packing for relocation, it is a must to grant extreme care to prevent breakage to the fragile household items. Taking the time to properly pack and label the containers can ensure your breakables arrive in one piece.

Having a stock of the packing materials and the necessary tools that will be required in the process is a must to let it flow smoothly. The list of the equipment and materials used is as under:  


       Packing tape


       Pliable cardboard

       Bubble wrap, newspaper, cotton, old fabrics

       Permanent marker

       Sturdy boxes


It is necessary to stay organized throughout the process and go easy on the steps as they unfold. Never rush packing as it risks breakage of delicates and also creates chaos in the process. It is of utmost importance to categorize goods as per dimensions and preference. Create a checklist of the processes and an inventory of all the articles you wish to pack for the move.




Glass and ceramic are the most brittle materials and any article made from them is vulnerable to suffer damage during handling and transporting. An effectively safe package can maintain the integrity of these fragile items and ensure that they reach the destination without a scratch or crack!  


Follow the steps below and ensure a safe transit –


  • Wrap individual glass items in newspapers and secure with tape. This effectively prevents chipping of the edges.

  • Have the package box padded with bubble wrap or use an old t-shirt to provide a soft cover for the delicate s.

  •  Place adequate items in a single box. Too many would risk over cramping that may cause breakage while too less articles in the box will cause the goods to move about, threatening breaking.

  • Pad the top surface with bubble wrap, newspapers or old fabrics to secure the items inside. Then close the lid.

  •  Secure the box by sufficiently taping the lids and do label the box “FRAGILE”.
