How to Pack Fragile Items: Expert Tips by Fragile Removals Waikato


Packing fragile items requires extra care and attention to ensure they arrive at your new home intact. At Fragile Removals Waikato, we specialize in handling delicate belongings with precision and care. Follow our comprehensive guide to pack fragile items safely for your upcoming move.

1. Gather Your Supplies

Before you begin packing, gather the necessary supplies:

  • Sturdy Boxes: Choose boxes that are strong enough to support the weight of fragile items.
  • Packing Paper: Use plain newsprint or bubble wrap to cushion items.
  • Bubble Wrap: Provides extra protection for delicate items such as glassware and ceramics.
  • Packing Peanuts or Foam Sheets: Fill empty spaces in boxes to prevent items from shifting during transit.
  • Packing Tape: Securely seal boxes to keep contents safe.

2. Prepare the Packing Area

Find a clean, flat surface to work on. Clear space and lay out your packing materials so everything is easily accessible.

3. Wrap Each Item Individually

  • Glassware: Wrap each piece in packing paper or bubble wrap. Start from one corner and wrap diagonally, tucking in any loose ends.
  • Ceramics: Place a layer of packing paper or bubble wrap inside the item before wrapping the entire piece.
  • Electronics: Use the original packaging if available. Otherwise, wrap them in bubble wrap and secure with tape.
  • Artwork or Mirrors: Place them between two pieces of cardboard and wrap with bubble wrap. Label as fragile.

4. Pack Items Securely in Boxes

  • Layering: Place a layer of packing peanuts or foam sheets at the bottom of the box for cushioning.
  • Arrangement: Pack heavier items at the bottom and lighter ones on top.
  • Fill Empty Spaces: Use packing peanuts or crumpled packing paper to fill any gaps to prevent shifting.
  • Labeling: Clearly mark boxes as “Fragile” and indicate the contents and destination room.

5. Seal and Label Boxes Properly

  • Sealing: Use packing tape to securely seal all edges and seams of the box.
  • Labeling: Clearly label each box with its contents and “Fragile” to alert movers to handle with care.
