Moving fragile items
One of the most important things when moving is making sure that all your belongings get to the destination in the same condition they left in. Things like glassware and antiques can be easily damaged when moving. Which is why it is important to pack fragile items in the correct manner.

Take time to prepare before packing so you can have an estimate of how many fragile items you have and develop a strategy on how you are going to pack everything together. Use this time to also get the packing material you will need. Boxes, newspaper/packing paper and bubble wrap are important to have. Get an assortment of boxes that are different in sizes. Heavier items are better packed in smaller boxes and lighter items packed into bigger boxes. Newspaper is great for protecting fragile items, make sure you have plenty of old newspapers use it as a shock-absorbing layer filling up empty space inside your boxes. Bubble wrap provides additional insulation to protect your goods and keep them from bumping into other items during transportation.
Do not leave empty space for fragile items to move around in the boxes, but also ensure that you do no not over pack your boxes. The weight of your boxes should be minimized where possible you do not want the boxes to tear, but items should be kept secure throughout transportation. Label the boxes with the fragile items so they can be handled with care. You will probably have a few people helping you move, so it’s crucial to label what boxes contain fragile items.
