Packing Fragile Items

House removal has always been a hassle and it becomes way more complex when it comes to packing treasured antiques and fragile items. It becomes a nightmare, especially at the end of your lease tenure when you have to pack all your household stuff for a quick move. Whereas the regular items can be moved in standard boxes, fragile items need special cartons and protection to stay intact during the transit. Many homeowners tend to neglect their fragile items and end up with a huge financial loss.

In this post, we are sharing a few common mistakes that people make while packing their breakables.

1) Not using sufficient packing supplies

If you are looking for a stress-free move, you need to take special care for packing your breakables. Be equipped with sufficient bubble wraps, varied boxes, newspapers, packing tapes and other packing supplies. To save pockets, a majority of the homeowners use clothes or towels to wrap their treasured breakables. While many of them consider it to be a wise option, in reality, it results in the other way round.  Packing tapes fail to stick properly with the clothes and they often slip off during transit. Therefore, it is not at all a good idea to be stingy on your packing supplies.

2) Forgetting To Label Your Cartons

If you want to stay away from the headache of packing and delegate the job on professional furniture removalist, make sure to inform them about your fragile items beforehand. In case of relocating expensive breakables, proper communication with your removalist becomes essential so that they can plan in advance and take necessary precautions while storing them in cartons. Amidst the heap of heavy furniture, sometimes people forget to label the cartons where they have stored the fragile items. The blunder happens at the time of unpacking, where they fail to identify the cartons where the breakables are stored and end up with damage. 

3) Overstuffing the Boxes

No matter how much time-consuming is your relocation, you can’t take the risk of stuffing all your items in a single carton. This is not at all a good idea as it can damage the other household stuff. A majority of the people resort to the idea of packing too many fragile items within a single box in order to save a few bucks. When it comes to packing fragile items, you just can’t be so casual. To prevent damage to your fragile items, you can ask the professionals of Gold Coast removals to use suitable containers and label them properly so that you don’t have to struggle at the time of unpacking.
