Once items are packed, stack the heavier boxes at the bottom and lighter ones towards the top. This makes it a lot less likely for the heavier items to break any of the more fragile ones.
Do not pack plates one on top of the other. The added weight puts too much stress on the bottom plate and it is more likely to break. Instead, wrap each plate in newspaper and stack them on their side, vertically.
Put cardboard or newspaper over any mirrors or glass. The card will absorb any minor bumps and bangs along the way.
If you are particularly worried about any fragile or valuable items, Flexi Removals offers a ‘White Glove Service’ to ensure those items are transported safely. See the ‘White Glove Service’ section of our website for more details.
