packers-in-laMoving out of your house is an exciting and at the same time tiring experience. You have to decide: what to take with you, how to pack your belongings and what moving company to hire among many other things.

Packing fragile objects may come as an extra challenge. If you don’t do it right, you’ll end up with a mess on your hands! Moving out doesn’t mean that you need to destroy your precious objects! Read on and find 3 easy tips to help you pack fragile objects!

First, you’ll need the right supplies! Make sure you have:

  • Bubble wrap
  • Cardboard boxes
  • Paper
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Packing tape

1.       Organize!

You should start by organizing your boxes so you’ll know where every object is. You can sort your items by categories. Write on every box what you’ll put in it. You can have categories like: chinaware, plates, glasses, electronics etc. A logic and clear system will make things easier when you pack, move your objects and most importantly when you unpack your belongings. Make sure you write “Fragile” on the top of the box: this will give your moving company a heads up when handling your stuff.

2.       Cover and protect!

A box full of plates and chinaware needs to be stuffed with a lot of bubble wrap or paper in order to prevent the pieces of glass from hitting one another. Even if Los Angeles is a car city, you never know when the car will hit a bump and you’ll lose all your beautiful chinaware. The further you go from the city, the risky it is, so the more bubble wrap you’ll need to use. Even if you find the best movers in Pasadena, you shouldn’t take any risks: wrap every plate and fragile object individually! If you remain without supplies, you can use old newspapers or magazines!

3.       Loading and Unloading

You need to be very careful when loading your boxes into a truck and when tacking them out. The packed fragile items should be on top and they should be supported by other boxes. When unloading, take the boxes marked fragile first and put them in a safe corner, so that they won’t stay in your way: you’ll probably unpack your fragile items last.
