If you’re moving to a new place, you probably have some glass vases and want to carry them. As you already know, glass vases are fragile and even the smallest impact can break them into pieces. That is why each one needs to be packed with the highest level of care. You may think that all you need is handling the box carrying the vases with care, but clashing with another container during transit is unavoidable. Thus, your key concern should be ensuring that your glass vases withstand any impact without breakage. Let’s discuss some vital tips on how to pack glass vases for moving.
How to Pack Glass Vases for Moving
Pack the Vases Individually
If you have several glass vases that you intend to carry, then the first thing is to pack them individually. And when doing this, ensure that you pack them in a way that reduces the risk of any potential damage. One, stuff tissue inside them to improve their structural integrity and to prevent scratches on the inside. The next step is wrapping each vase using a bubble wrap. Use bubble wraps even for the smallest vases to ensure that if a force is exerted on the package, the vases won’t collide and break. By wrapping each vase using a bubble wrap, you’ll significantly reduce this risk.
Secure Them as One Package
After packing them individually, it’s time now to pack them as one package securely. What you need are high-quality boxes that are durable enough for your glass vases to be well-contained. And when choosing a packing box, ensure it’s of the correct size. By using a big box, the vases will have extra space to move around, and they run the risk of breaking. If you use a small box, you’ll struggle packing the vases correctly and they can break in the process. Avoid these situations by finding a suitably sized box where all your items will fit, without having to struggle or pile many items on top of each other.
Provide the Right Base
It’s essential that you provide the right cushion for your fragile glass vases. When moving, either by truck or van, all the items will tend to gravitate towards the bottom. Therefore, if there is a part that needs most of the cushioning, it’s the base. Also, it’s crucial to stuff the sides and the empty spaces between each vase. This helps to keep the glass vases against each other, and there will be no room for collision with items such as dresser drawers.
Label the Boxes Appropriately
Before you load the boxes onto the moving vehicle, be sure to label them appropriately. Label them as “fragile” so that anyone who carries them handles them with lots of care. This way when packing the truck people will know the boxes contain fragile items and won’t pack heavy items on top of them.
Moving fragile items such as glass vases may prove to be a daunting task. Knowing how to pack glass vases for moving will help keep them safe, and avoid any damage. Take your time when packing and you’ll have peace of mind all through the journey.
