Packing Fragile Items for Shipping and Storage

Box with packing peanuts

There is always apprehension when it comes to valuable items and fragile packing. Some items can't be replaced. Make sure your fragile valuables are properly packed for their journey when shipping.

First, wrap with your item in small bubble. If you're placing more than one item per box, wrap each item in its own small bubble. Next, wrap the item with large bubble. If you're shipping more than one item, you can wrap all of them together in one sheet of large bubble. Then enclose the items wrapped in bubble with stretch film.

Now you need to pick an appropriately sized box for moving. Make sure to tape the bottom of the box securely. Place a layer of peanuts on the bottom of the box. Place your item in the box and fill it with packing peanuts, making sure you don't pack the box too tightly. Fill it until you can't feel the item shaking inside the box - remember if it shakes then it can break. Securely tape the box lid shut. You may even want to wrap tape around the entire circumference of the box. Make sure you have warning labels on the outside of the box - FRAGILE - GLASS - DON'T DROP so the shippers will know to handle your box with extra care during transit.

We have what you need for each step of the way, corrugated cardboard boxes of all sizes in stock, as well as custom box sizes and shapes available. To secure your item inside its shipping container, we stock packaging supplies including large bubble, small bubble, stretch film, packing peanuts and foam.
