How to pack fragile items for moving

Moving home can be a stressful process, and it can be extremely tempting to just throw everything into a cardboard box during this hectic time. However, it’s an undeniable fact that there are certain items in the household that will break if they are not packaged properly. At AR Removals, there has been so many occasions where our removals team in Wakefield has witnessed Yorkshire movers open some of their most prized possessions to find that they have been broken during the process as they didn’t follow our packaging advice.

Because of that, our team have taken the time out to discuss the best packaging solutions for fragile items when moving house in Wakefield or the surrounding Yorkshire area.

1) Do you really need it?

A lot of people when moving take time to clear out a lot of their stuff, however when it comes to a lot of the fragile stuff they tend to hold onto them because they feel a lot more experience. According to experts, items that have not been used for more than a year are not worth transporting and should be sold or given away. So before you spend a lot on wrapping your fragile items ready for the removals team, make sure you really need it!

2) Use proper packaging materials

It is an obvious statement, but you’d be surprised how many Yorkshire-residents don’t get the proper packaging equipment’s ready for their move. Our Wakefield removal experts recommended that you buy things such as strong cardboard boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap and packing tape – all of which are high in quality – ready for your move.

3) Wrap items with care
Make sure that you use all of the materials above to package your fragile items to prevent damage. Afterwards, we highly recommend that you make it known to the removals team that the box has fragile goods within it – highlight this by writing ‘fragile’ largely on the box.
