What packing supplies you need when transporting breakable items
May 7, 2018
Moving isn’t just about transporting large pieces of furniture. In fact, a large number of the things that are relocated are actually breakable items. These types of items are present in all apartments and homes, no matter how big or small they are. You use them each day and you need them each day. That’s why, when it comes to moving to a new location, you will definitely choose to take them with you.
But these breakable items are just as the name describes them, breakable. This means that you have to take extra care when moving them. Just getting these items and throwing them in a bag or a box is not enough. If you still want to have them intact at your new home, then you need to make sure that they are packed correctly.
Most importantly, you have to make sure that you get the right packing supplies. These supplies will help keep your breakable items safe. At Empire Movers, we have a lot of experience with them. That’s why we’ve put together this list of packing supplies that you will definitely need in case you plan to move to a new home and want to take any breakable items with you. Here they are:
Necessary packing supplies for breakable items
- Packing tape
Trust us when we say that not just any packing tape will do. Cheaper tape comes with huge risk. It may fail at any point and it won’t keep your items safe. Not to mention that dispensers can get stuck or lose the tape’s edge. This means that you’ll have to spend much more of your own time in order to pack your belongings. Getting a better quality tape is really worth it.
- Bubble wrap
Everyone’s favorite packing material is a must when transporting items that can break at any time. Of course, if you don’t want to spend money on bubble wrap, you can substitute it with other items that you have around the house, such as clothes, rags or plastic bags. They can work just as fine, but make sure that you use them properly.
- Packing paper
You can purchase it from your local hardware store, or you can use newspapers, if you happen to have enough of them. Just remember that using newspapers means that you risk transferring some of the ink to your belongings. But if you’re ok with that, go for it.
- Dish boxes
You can buy these as well. Just remember to get the right size.
Moving breakable items shouldn’t be a problem. You shouldn’t worry about it. And, if you follow our advice and use the right packing supplies, you’ll be able to safely transport your belongings to your new home.
