    Expert tips for packing glasses for the move

    We think one of the most important phases of moving that gets often overlooked is learning how to pack appropriately. And we don’t just mean packing your clothes, and books. We also mean learning how to pack your fragile belongings. Things like packing a chandelier, TV’s, and in this case – glasses. Now, why is that? Well, it’s quite obvious, isn’t it? If you fail to pack your fragile items for the relocation accordingly you are risking potential hundreds if not thousands of dollars in reparations. That’s why it’s so important to know how to pack, or…

    … hire someone who knows’s how to pack.

    While you might try packing glasses for the move on your own, we really advise against that. You are going to need a lot of packing materials that you normally don’t have, and buying them could set you back. And not only that, if you don’t know what you are doing, you might pack your belongings improperly. And if that is the case you are risking a lot of unnecessary damage to your valuable glassware. That’s why we always recommend to our clients to hire packing services Clearwater FL.

    If you are packing by yourself, don’t forget to label your moving boxes.
    • Use a dish pack box. These are large moving boxes that have double thick walls that provide extra protection for your glasses.
    • Roll up newspapers and place them at the bottom of the moving box to provide a nice shock absorber.
    • Pack your glasses in packing paper. If needed use two layers or more.
    • Place the packing paper with the glassware in it, into the moving box.
    • Fill empty spaces of the moving box with packing peanuts or newspaper.

    Why Choose Us?

    Big Man’s Moving was a great choice for our recent long distance move! They cared so much about making sure that we were comfortable with the entire process. While I never met Josh, he definitely strives to “do things the right way”. James drove our stuff across the country and we never worried about it once. He was super professional, called us to give updates on his location and brought a good sense of humor to the loading/unloading process. I wish Big Man’s Moving would move to our new city, just in case we ever need them again!
