How to Keep Your Fragile Items Safe While Moving from Denver Movers

What’s worse than arriving at your new home, filled with excitement, and realizing some of your valuables are broken? It’s a pain and can be an unfortunate accident when moving. However, if you pack smartly, you can prevent this from happening. Use these tips from Denver movers while packing to keep your breakables from breaking in transit!

Dishes and Glassware

Dishes and glassware can be tricky, and it is always best to be over-prepared while packing. When it comes to the boxes you put your dishes and glassware in, be sure the bottom of the box is completely closed and then taped shut. This will ensure the bottom of the box does not collapse. Next, fill the bottom of the box with some padding. You can use a newspaper that has been wadded up or bubble wrap. Next, wrap the dishes individually. Newspaper or any paper is a great inexpensive way to pack. Pack plates first, especially if you will have a mixed box with plates, bowls, glassware, etc. This will help provide a sturdy base. For glasses, make sure to pack the inside of them and then roll them in the paper. Try to keep them simple; you do not want them to be too large. Once you have fully packed the box, use extra newspaper and/or bubble wrap to fill in the spaces within the box—the less movement in the box while moving, the better.

Art

When it comes to moving your art, you must be very cautious. It is easy to ruin different types of artwork just by holding it for too long. When setting several pieces down, place them against a wall and avoid stacking them. This will keep them from being scratched or stepped on. Make sure nothing is set on your painting that weighs enough to damage it. When moving, it is helpful to take towels, blankets, or other clothes and use them as a separator. This will help keep items from being prone to get scratched.

Unique Items

You might have a variety of breakables and pieces of furniture that is oddly shaped. It can be challenging to handle oddly shaped items when packing. Be sure to follow similar guidelines as dishes and glassware. Use multiple layers of paper to wrap items. Bubble wrap, foam peanuts, and other types of filler are ideal for keeping the items in their boxes safe and sound. For more tips on packing fragile items, read The Container Store’s guide “Expert Tips and Ideas.”

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services!

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
