Packing Tips: Episode Two--Fragile Items

Help these arrive safe and intact!
Help these arrive safe and intact!

Easy as One, Two, Three!


Fragile, delicate, and breakable items must first be carefully wrapped before they can be packed into boxes. This includes dishes, glassware, stemware, ceramics, vases, figurines, table lamps, pictures, mirrors, and the like. Follow these three simple steps to perfectly pack your breakables.

1)      Wrap

Glasses/Dishware: Entirely cover the glass/dish with a layer of newspaper or wrapping paper which can be purchased through Charles River Movers. Glasses can be nested one inside the other when possible.


Stemware/Vases/Figurines:Wrap each piece separately by placing the item diagonally on a few pieces of wrapping paper, nearer to your body rather than in the center of the sheet, and rolling the item up in the paper.



2)      Secure

Every item, individually wrapped, should be protected with additional pieces of wrapping paper to guard them from being scratched or broken. When necessary, feel free to use one or two pieces of tape to secure the paper as well.



3)      Pack

Glasses/Dishware: Place each individually wrapped glass/dish into a small box and, remember from our first episode of packing tips, to completely fill each box. This prevents damage to the items from shifting during your move. If the box will be too heavy if entirely filled, instead add crumpled up wrapping paper to fill the box to ensure your items are protected.


Stemware/Vases/Figurines: These fragile items, once wrapped, are best packed into the compartments of an empty liquor carton or in one of our dish cartons.


Please do not hesitate to contact Charles River Movers with any questions or concerns regarding packing for your move at 781-899-6683. Happy Packing!
