How to Protect Fragile Items While Moving

How to Protect Fragile Items While Moving

One of the things that are unavoidable during a relocation is the need to move fragile items. A single moving mistake and you might end up damaging not just your beloved item, but also your property. Whether you are hiring movers Singapore to help you move, or you are doing the move yourself, you need to take precautions and plan ahead on how to get them to your new home in good condition.

Don’t know how to do so? Read the tips below.

Ensure you have the right packing materials

When moving fragile items, the first essential thing to do is to ensure that you have all the right packing materials. Fragile items need a lot of cushions so they are well protected during transport. So gather packing materials ahead of time, making sure that you have what you need by the time you start packing. You will need the following:

  • Boxes in different sizes

  • Bubble wrap

  • Packing paper (or newspaper)

  • Packing peanuts

  • Stretch wrap

  • Tape

  • Marker

  • Scissors

Pack your fragile items properly

Packing takes time. In order to ensure their safety, your items need to be packed properly to help ensure their safety during the entire process of moving. So before your Singapore movers arrive, packing should already be done. Here are some tips on how to pack your fragile items:

Ask help from friends or from movers Singapore

Moving is an arduous task and doing it alone is not only exhausting but can also be dangerous, especially when it comes to carrying heavy items or furniture. So, for your and your item's safety, never attempt to move heavy items alone. Ask help from family members or friends in carrying heavy furniture or boxes. Or better yet, get professional help from your movers Singapore. In looking for Singapore movers to hire, Wise Move can make the process easy and fast. Create a job listing on the platform and you will receive multiple quotes from Singapore’s top-notch moving companies. 

Unpack your items carefully

Protecting your delicate items extends even after your Singapore movers have delivered them. Remember, you still need some unpacking to do (if you didn’t pay for the packing/unpacking service). Just like packing, take your time to unpack your delicate items properly. Unwrap the parts you have detached and carefully reassemble them carefully.  Move your furniture to its new spot by carrying them or using sliders so you protect the floor of your new home.

There’s nothing more frustrating than finding out that your precious items are damaged upon unpacking them at your new home. So make sure they are all well-protected, most especially, the fragile items. While a DIY move is fine, if you have plenty of fragile items, it is greatly advisable to hire movers Singapore for your home move.

Will recommend to anyone looking for a responsive and responsible moving service! 6 stars service! I needed to move my office urgently and Faith Relocation responded quickly and was consistently responsive with updates! The moving was made smooth with great teamwork by the entire team lead by Andy. Each of the team member handled our items with utmost care. We overestimated what was possible to fit within a truck and Andy , knowing we had a tight dateline, immediately went to make sure that he could make 2 trips. Even though was not around with the movers, she followed up twice to ensure that all was good. Andy made sure that the move was smooth and organised. Extremely pleased and impress with Faith Relocation 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
