• Packing Fragile Items

  • Fragile are some of the hardest items to pack. From ornaments to dishes, antiques, photos and lights, you’ll need to consider what you’re packing, and how best to transport them.

    Large photos, framed items and paintings other wall based items are easiest wrapped in bubble-wrap and then placed carefully in a safe place – they’ll need to be monitored carefully when moving, as anything falling against them could cause serious damage, tear or break them.

    By far and away, the most awkward items to move are computer monitors and TV are the hardest to move – unless you’ve kept their boxes, you’ll find it very difficult to either fit them into a box that you have acquired, or find that you need the boxes for other things. These can be wrapped in sheets or dust covers and placed, with padding around them, in the van once the boxes are in. Most removal companies bind layers to stop them from shifting or falling, so you can secure your monitors and computers in the same way. Eastern Connection movers suggests that if you have not kept the original boxes that your computer and monitor came in to pack them is no problem. What Eastern Connection movers professional packing service would recommend is going to your local box supplier or get the boxes from Eastern Connection movers company and purchase a few dish boxes as these boxes are 5×2 and get packing peanuts plus packing paper and it’s best to buy the packing paper that comes in 25 pounds per bundle.

    To pack your computer and monitor you take a dish box place the packing peanuts in the bottom of the box next, take the computer monitor place the monitor in the box on of the peanuts take some of the packing paper bundle it up place some on each side and the top of the monitor and then place some of the packing peanuts on top of the monitor then take a utility knife cuts down the sides of the box down to where t meets the top of the monitor and then fold the flaps of the box over and seal the box with packing tape. This will assure you that your monitor is packed the correct way and you can repeat the same with the computer unit as well. If you should have any questions on how to pack call Eastern Connection Movers Company for more how to tips or let Eastern Connection movers professionals do the packing for you.

    Fragile items, such as ornaments and dishes can go in polystyrene bead lined boxes, or be packed in bubble wrap, but it’s important to remember that this will cut down on the volume of the items you can fit into the box, and it’s still no guarantee that they will survive the move.

    Careful packing does minimize the risk of things being broken, but one of the only ways to actually ensure that you have no breakages whilst moving is to take them with you, or, if hiring a firm, allowing them to pack.

    Newspaper is a great buffer item, but remember, the ink may rub off while in transit, giving you another chore at the other end. You can get white “newsprint” paper from most box suppliers, which is considered to be best for packing and wrapping fragile items.
