  • Not using adequate moving supplies. Fragile items require special packing materials and special boxes. Do not treat them like regular items. You will have to buy double-walled boxes, Styrofoam, shrinking wrap, bubble wrap, plastic covers and so on.  Make a list with these moving supplies with at least one week before the move.
  • Not labeling the boxes. This is one of the biggest mistakes you can do during the move. All boxes must be labeled, especially those containing fragile items. You can simply use a marker and write “fragile” on each box. Or you can buy from libraries or offices supplies stores premade labels. No matter what method you use, it is imperative to label boxes with fragile items.
  • Misplacing boxes in the cargo hold. Properly placing fragile items is the main reason why you should label the boxes. These labels will help you place boxes containing fragile items above boxes that contain sturdier items. Or you can keep a sector of the cargo hold entirely dedicated to fragile items.
  • Being hurried. You must pack fragile items first and with some time ahead. Do not pack fragile items when you are stressed and hurried. You can easily lose your focus and break something.
