How to Pack Fragile Items for a Move

If you are getting ready for a big move, you will need to get your hands on the proper packing products for all your belongings. Fragile and frequently damaged items require special care and attention, and you should take extra time during the packing process to ensure safety and protection. You can prevent damage from occurring and at All My Sons Moving & Storage, we provide you with the best tips on how to pack your precious items that can be easily destroyed during a move.

Glassware and Mirrors

Any household item that includes glass can be considered fragile. If you do not properly pack your delicate glassware, you can expect damage as soon as you unpack these items during a move. We recommend that you individually wrap your glassware with plain packing paper or bubble wrap before placing it in a durable box. Mirrors should be packed in boxes of the same size and with cushioning placed on the bottom of the box. You should also wrap the mirror with bubble wrap for extra protection.


It is very common for furniture pieces to become ruined or broken during the moving journey and you should carefully pack these items for the most protection possible. Dismantle your furniture and individually wrap each piece with furniture moving blankets. Purchasing the appropriate packing products such as furniture moving pads will reduce the risk of scratches and dents on your furniture.


When it comes to your electronics, you should save the original boxes for the most protection and the proper fit. Remove all cords and secure them with packing tape and cover each electronic device with bubble wrap. The last thing you want is for your living room TV to be damaged when you move to your new home!
