Relocating with High Value and Fragile Items

Whether you’re moving locally or to another part of the country, every relocation comes with potential problems and things that need additional attention. This is especially true for anyone who is moving with items that are valuable or hold sentimental importance. The prospect of breakages or damage is a reality that shouldn’t be taken lightly and must factor in some important decisions.

That’s why it’s crucial to book with a reliable removals company with a reputation for excellent customer service. At Thomas Firbank, we do our due diligence and assess everything aspect of your relocation in detail. For our team, there’s no such thing as unimportant details; that’s why we guarantee to safeguard your possessions.

How to Pack Valuables and Move Antique Furniture –

Before we go into further detail about how to relocate with fragile and valuable items, please remember to pack everything carefully. Although the focus on this blog is on valuables, any damage or breakages will end up causing you a headache. That’s why it’s important to use sturdy boxes and containers wherever possible. Getting old boxes from the supermarket might be cheaper, but the cardboard is usually damp, and the protection they offer is minimal.

Let’s get into how to pack fragile items. You should separate valuable things, or things that might break easily, to one side. They’ll need to be given extra packaging and kept away from bulky furniture during transit. Remember to clearly mark any important notes on the box with a label, including a visible fragile sticker. All glass items should be in a few layers of bubble wrap and put into a box with lots of cushioning. It’s also vital that you don’t overpack these boxes, and that they go into the van last.

No matter how many boxes and pieces of furniture you’re moving with, you need to make an inventory of your possessions. You can do this with pen and paper if you like, but we would suggest downloading a home inventory app. Home inventories help a lot when you unpack. It’s possible to use them for insurance purposes and remember to discuss the relocation with your insurance company. You’ll need to send your inventory to us so we can factor this into what removals service we use.
