And if you think that you cannot afford bubble wrap expenses then don’t worry as you still have a lot of options to use. You can use moving blankets, towels, etc.

Put the goods into the carton

After wrapping the goods put them into the carton boxes. But, make sure not to overload the boxes or stack other fragile items in the same box. But, before putting the goods, seal the boxes carefully from the bottom or else the goods will spill out from the bottom. So, close it tightly using packing tapes.

Sealing boxes

Do not forget to seal the boxes carefully with packing tapes once you complete packing. This ensures the box will not open at any case during the transportation.


As you are packing fragile items, so it is very important to label it as ‘Fragile’ or ‘HANDLE WITH CARE’. This will immediately indicate the person, who is handling it to handle it with care. Do not write anything on the top of the box, but on the each sides of the boxes.

These will help you to relocate your fragile and delicate items safely to the new location. And you can enjoy safe, stress-free and damage-free relocation experience.
