Relocation Tips - Keep Your Breakables Whole
Once in our life, we might find the need to move into a new home. Moving not only involves packing and transporting of bulky stuff but breakables too. Whether it is chinaware or an expensive antique collection, careful handling is necessary to ensure they make it to your new home in one piece.
Take count of your breakables
The first thing you want to do is to list down all the fragile items you own. This allows you to figure out the amount of boxes and cushioning materials you need to buy. In cushioning fragile items, you may use packing paper or newsprint, although bubble wrap is more preferred as it doesn't easily deplete.
Create a packing plan
If you have not hired a moving company to pack your belongings, you have to develop a packing plan to ensure safe shifting of your belongings. After packing the fragile items, be sure to label the box with its contents. Also mark the box ‘fragile' so you know which boxes require careful handling.
Lastly, be careful as you load fragile boxes into the moving van. Take some time to calculate how much breakables you own and plan how to safely move them. Then, buy the right packing supplies, carefully haul them and stay conscientious until you reach your new home.
