Tips for Packing Fragile Items

Packing fragile items can be a nerve-wracking experience. You don’t want your belongings to break on the way to your new home. Fragile items can be expensive to replace or important to you, so you’ll want to ensure that they’re packed properly! Here are some tips on how to successfully pack fragile items.

Small Boxes

If you’re packing glassware and porcelain, make sure to use several small boxes. Never pack them with heavier items, or you’ll be putting them at risk of breakage.


Items that are as fragile as light bulbs or fine china should be wrapped individually, and packed based on their weight and size. Remove any loose pieces and attachments from fragile items so that you can avoid putting scratches, cracks and any added pressure onto the items.


Make sure to tape all around the box, especially the bottom, so nothing accidentally slips out of the box. This will also make the box sturdier, ensuring extra protection!

Hollow Items

In order to prevent possible breakage, make sure to fill hollow items such as vases and jars, with packing paper.

Sturdy Boxes

Don’t settle for flimsy boxes. With fragile items, its most important to make sure they’re sturdy, durable and unlikely to get holes. This will keep your items as safe as possible in the moving truck.

Padding with Soft Materials

Layer the bottom of the box with soft items including towels, packing paper and Styrofoam peanuts. This will add extra padding and protection to the boxes incase the items shift around in the box on the way to your new home.
