Strong cardboard boxes and not just any random boxes will be required for packing fragile items carefully. Professional house movers and packers in Dubai have a special grade of cardboard boxes that are used for packing fragile goods. These boxes have thicker walls made up of two to three layers of sandwiched cardboard material. When you pick cardboard boxes ensure the boxes are clean, dry, and strong.
ii. Packing paper:
Packing paper helps in keeping a distance between two fragile items. When you pack kitchen crockery items like plates, cups, saucers, and glasses packing paper makes a barrier between the two items while not permitting them to knock on each other and break. While packing it is essential that you must use special thick-grade packing paper as it will ensure a safe distance between two items. On average about a sum of 200 dollars worth of packing paper is required while packing kitchen utensils alone.
iii. Bubble wrap:
Remember as kids how much you loved taking sheets of bubble wrap in hand and breaking the small air pockets? Those air pockets which you loved breaking were the ones that helped protect your delicate item from breaking. Now when as grown up you will pack your household delicate goods you will need these same things. Make sure you have enough supply of bubble wrap and roll each item in it before putting it in boxes.
iv. Marker and other small supplies:
Along with all those big things you will need a number of smaller items to make your fragile items packing successful. When you hire home movers and packers in Dubai they come ready with all packing supplies you won’t have to buy or invest in a single thing.
