How to Move Large or Fragile Items

Moving Large or Fragile Items

fragile items - Griffin Moving

Careful planning and packing supplies are needed to ensure safety when moving heavy or delicate things. Incorrectly moving huge objects could lead to strain and injury. To guarantee that fragile objects arrive undamaged, they should be wrapped carefully. You may save time, effort, and the worry of “hoping” everything holds together by taking a few straightforward steps.


Packing delicate items

Fragile items must be safeguarded throughout transit, as opposed to books and clothing. It is best to fill dish boxes vertically to reduce surface area and the chance of bottom plates being crushed. After being bubble-wrapped, put each plate in a box with dividers.

There are compartmented bins for wine glasses and champagne flutes, which helps maintain the glasses upright in the box and prevents them from slamming into one another. To lessen vibrations, pack glasses with paper. To protect fragile things, use bubble wrap or packing paper. Wrap individual components, such as a teapot and lid.


Purchase plenty of packing supplies

Having enough of packaging supplies on hand is always a good idea, especially bubble wrap and packing paper. Rags, towels, linens, and other textiles can be used to wrap or cushion delicate objects. There is also a need for tape and boxes or containers.


Label everything!

Don’t assume that on the big day, you’ll remember everything. Label boxes that are fragile with “FRAGILE.” Make a list to keep track of what’s in your boxes. You can make sure that everything is moved and carried correctly and that your boxes arrive at the proper spot by applying this rule to non-fragile items as well.


Disassemble What You Can

It is simpler to move heavy objects when broken down into smaller parts, helping you lift, move, and shift objects, while reducing physical stress. When taking apart furniture, mark the screws, bolts, and individual parts. Take photos of the connectors for the television and audio systems. This will be useful when putting your things back together!


Plan ahead

Take your move’s logistics into account. To ensure that your stuff will fit, make sure to measure the doorways, hallways, etc. It could be required to remove doors from their hinges or take a different path.

Practical considerations include the necessity for several hands and powerful arms, so ask for help as soon as possible. The most dependable and stress-free choice is hiring professional movers. They have the equipment necessary to move and lift your goods and take apart and reassemble furniture.



Why are there so many blankets and furniture pads around? Even when moving large objects carefully, it might be challenging. Additionally, it’s challenging to prevent them from moving around inside the moving truck. Use what you have to prevent damage. Bubble wrap, padding, thick linens, furniture blankets, and other protective things can be helpful.
