The Basics of Packing Fragile Items
Start with using a sturdy box. Sturdy boxes or other sturdy containers to hold your more fragile items are one of the best things you can do to protect these items. Flimsy boxes offer little support and can break more easily. A sturdy box offers the best protection for storing your fragile items. Boxes and bins with thicker, more supportive sidewalls won’t break or crush as easily and can be safely stacked for better organization of your storage unit.
After you have a sturdy box, be sure to have plenty of padding. For the most secure storage, be sure to also pad the bottom, top, and sides of the box or bin. This ensures that if anything is shuffled around during moving or transportation, your fragile items will stay safe. Also, if the boxes happen to get dropped or bumped around, your items are much less likely to get damaged when they have the proper padding.
