High-quality packing materials are a must when you pack your glassware.

To pack your glassware, you will need quality material

When it comes to packing, you can choose to get help from packing services Los Angeles, or you can do it yourself. Whatever you choose, don’t forget that you have to get high-quality packing materials for your glassware.

To pack your glasses, you will need:

  • Glassine – Glassine is used to protect the wrapped item. It will protect your glassware from scratches, dirt, and moisture.
  • Bubble wrap –  Bubble wrap is used to wrap each glassware item twice. It is the protective layer, which is why it’s the part of the packing materials that you shouldn’t ever lack.
  • Packing paper – Packing paper can be used either as packing peanuts or for stackable glassware.
  • Packing peanuts – Packing peanuts will protect your items during transport. You should fill the box with them, but not so much that the items can’t move at all.
  • Boxes – Preferably plastic ones. The plastic boxes will protect the glassware much better than the cardboard ones if it comes to some sort of accident and the box gets hit, for example.
  • Adhesive tape
  • Knife/Scissors

Those are the materials that you should get. Don’t cut down on bubble wrap – you will need a lot of it.

Choose between the cardboard and plastic boxes

When it comes to packing your items, there’s always the dilemma: should I use cardboard or plastic boxes? If you choose to hire Los Angeles Interstate Movers, you won’t have to worry about it – they will handle the whole process for you. If you want to have that responsibility, then make sure that you make the right choice. In the end, it’s the question of the budget and the quantity of the items. If you have a lot of fragile items and can’t afford to get plastic boxes for all of them, then think about insuring them. You can get insurance at the same company whose moving services you decided to use.
