Glass and Mirrors
Get all the furniture glass tops, paintings, and mirrors in bubble wrapping with pads. Ask your moving company to provide specially designed containers for transporting them safely.
Books should be packed in small, strong boxes. Boxes available at stores are not usually strong to hold your items. We suggest utilizing those boxes provided by moving company as these boxes are manufactured keeping in mind the moving requirements and can fit any household items of all sizes and shapes.
Dishes, China Material and Clothing
Clothes can be stored within furniture drawers or in cartons/boxes that are available on demand. Use Paper pads to wrap all china and fragile items individually. Always place the heaviest items at the bottom. Pack remaining dishes vertically. Use 3" thick paper sheets to stack the plates. For additional safety, atop of 2" paper pad can be used at the top of the carton or box for cushion.
