Delicate Items Around The House That Need Extra Care When Packing

Packing for a move can be quite stressful especially if there are fragile items involved. Such items have special packing considerations to ensure that they reach the destination intact. Hiring a moving company to do all the packing and moving for you can relieve you such stress since professional moving companies have the right packing supplies for most fragile items. However, before you engage any moving company for special packing of fragile items, it is important to have a clear overview of what delicate items you may be having in the house that need extra care during the packing process.

This article offers an in-depth overview of some of these items and tips on how to pack fragile items like a pro.

Laptops and personal computers

Laptops and personal computers are not only delicate but also expensive. If handled carelessly, these devices can break easily affecting their functionality and in some cases, it becomes hard to have them repaired. When packing personal computers you need to dismantle the entire system and pack each component on its own putting cushioning materials such as blankets to keep them safe. Laptops on the other hand, should be packed in backpacks that are designed specifically for carrying such devices.

Television sets

These are very fragile items and any slight contact with hard material can lead to breakage of the screen. Ensure you pack your television set in the box you bought it in. In case the box is not available, modify another box and use Styrofoam to provide a cushion for the screen.

Glassware is yet another class of delicate items that you should be careful with while packing for a move. You need to sort out all your items in advance and establish the number of items in the glassware category so that you can get the appropriate packing materials. Avoid packing your glassware first since it can break when hit by other heavy items. The best way to pack such items is to strap them together and move them separately.


If you have any piece of art in your house, you should take great care when preparing it for a move. These types of items often have a sentimental attachment or could be priceless family heirlooms. To preserve your art, ensure you pack it using special packing materials that will keep it protected all through the move. If you do not have the appropriate packing supplies, you can ask your moving company for help packing your art.

During the moving process, household items are subjected to a lot of movement such that it becomes easy to lose or even damage them. You need to take care of your delicate items in the house –be it artwork, pieces of electronics, or glassware. Hiring a reputable moving company can guarantee you the safety of your delicate items since such companies have not only the expertise in handling fragile items but also have the right tools and equipment.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
