How to Properly Pack your Breakables

  • Whether you are moving or transferring some of your heirlooms into a storage unit at 1st Choice Storage in Gautier you will want to make sure you are packing the fragile items correctly. Incorrectly packing your breakables will result in a loss of something that you care about most. Below are some steps you should be taking to protect those fragile items. 
      • Choose the right box. You will want to use boxes that are sturdy enough to hold your fragile items and large enough to fit the item and the adequate amount of packing materials. If necessary you might want to consider adding extra packing material or double-boxing your breakables during transit. 
      • Fill the items that could collapse inwards. Items such as glasses, bowls, and vases should be filled with tissue paper, extra socks, or newspaper to put equal pressure on all the surfaces of your fragile items. 
      • Completely wrap all of your breakable valuables in bubble wrap to protect it during its move or stay in a storage unit at 1st Choice Storage in Gautier. Make sure the bubble wrap covers all surfaces of your item and it is secured with tape. Make sure you aren’t using the tape excessively or else you will have a hard time getting to your item when you need it. 
      • Make sure your box is completely filled. Put 2 to 3 inches of packing peanuts on the bottom of the box. Once you have a layer of packing material you can begin to place your bubble wrapped items in your box. Fill any of the empty spaces in between your items and the box with packing peanuts. Make sure your items are secure enough so they don’t have any wiggle room within the box. Securely tape the box and label it for ease and organization.
