cheap-la-moving-300x162Fragile items cost a fortune, especially if they are made of expensive materials, like delicate porcelain. Also, electronic devices, especially big screen TV’s are very sensitive and must be protected using the right materials. Besides economic values, some of the items have historical and emotional value. Replacing them is impossible. In this blog post, LA movers offer 5 tips for packing fragile objects.

1)     Plan everything in advance. If you are worried about the safety of your most delicate items, take some time off and carefully plan the move. You will need to make an inventory list and register all the fragile items. Search for more info about how they must be transported if you have time. Packing and moving an ancient Chinese vase is totally different than doing the same operation for a sturdier piano.
