How to Pack Jewelry And Other Valuable Goods?

One of the most difficult things about moving is the fact that you will need to pack everything neatly in boxes before the moving company comes to collect them. Although some items like books are easy to pack, there are others that will give you a bit of trouble packing. A good example of these items is jewelry.

You can, for example, put all your jewelry in a small box only to find that some of the smaller earrings found openings at the corners and dropped. Necklaces will also get entangled very quickly when given some free space.

If your budget allows, you should outsource all this trouble by getting packing and unpacking services with your moving package from your moving company. If not, here are some tips that will make the process easier for you.

Use drinking straws for your necklaces

This tip ensures that you never have to untangle your necklaces again because they will be kept safe throughout the move no matter how bumpy the ride is. What you need to do is to insert one half of the necklace into the straw, while leaving the other half outside. Make sure that hook is secured firmly so that it doesn’t detach itself during the move. When done well, you will never have to worry about untangling your necklaces upon arrival.

Use buttons for earrings

Earrings have a tendency of getting lost during moves. They also seem to get lost in the most bizarre style because usually, only one earring in the pair is the one that gets lost. This means that you will be left with just one earring that you can’t use. To avoid all this, use your old buttons to organize your earrings. Insert each pair of earrings into the button holes and they will stay together throughout the trip.

Use Buttons For Earrings

Paper plates

Paper plates are also very practical in packing earrings. All you need to do is to make holes for your earrings, bangles and necklaces, then you can place each plate in a Ziploc bag.

Jewelry organizers

If you’d rather not go the DIY way, then you can purchase a jewelry organizer box that has places for your earrings, necklaces and bangles. Each item will be grouped together with similar items and placed safely to avoid transportation problems.

Pill case

Pill cases are perfect for storing small pieces of jewelry like stud earrings or rings because they have small compartments that can be used to store the different pieces of jewelry that you don’t want to mix. The good thing about these cases is that they are lockable so the chances of some of the jewelry getting lost along the way are reduced drastically.

Regardless of whether it’s a short move or a long distance one, nobody wants to lose their valuable possessions. Although jewelry is notorious for getting lost during moves, you don’t have to face the agony of losing your favorite pair of earring. Use the above packing tips and you stand a higher chance of getting them all safely to your new home.

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.
