Tips for Packing Fragile Items - Canadian Movers
Here are some tips that will guide you in packing your fragile items safely when moving.

Get Some Wrap

If you plan on moving fragile items – make sure you have enough wrapping material ready. Such wrapping material includes tissues, packing paper and newsprint. Wrap your fragile items with tissue paper or packing paper, and then finish by wrapping it in newspaper that will provide added safety to the item. When you are ready to place the item into a moving box, make sure that the top surface of the packed item is soft. You can do this by adding foam to the box which will help to prevent damage from any bumps during moving. Fragile items may need extra attention when moving long distance.

Glass Items

When moving local or long distance, glass items such as mirrors tend to break easily. Such items should not be wrapped with tissue, and rather with a towel or even a blanket. Tissue and paper do protect fragile items when moving, but only till some extent. So make use of a towel or a blanket to wrap mirrors and other glass items before putting them into a moving box.
