Packing Non-Fragile Items vs Packing Fragile Items
Packing is one of the most important aspects throughout a cargo’s journey. A cautious and informed packing can make this journey a safe venture. On the other hand, a loose and dubious packed box can turn a complete cargo experience sour.
So, what is it that stitch threads together for packing? There are many things. One of which is the kind of item you are packing. It could be a fragile glassware or it could be a simple, non-fragile commodity like books. All you need to do is to pack as per their sturdiness.
Let’s see the preparations for packing both; non fragile and fragile item.
Packing Non-Fragile Items
To kick off things, get a double-walled, strong cardboard box. As a rule of thumb; start packing the heaviest items on the base of the box. Then, utilize space as much as possible inside the box. And dump in packing paper in the remaining space.
At this stage tape the box, shake it, to check the box is intact and nothing is moving inside it. If something moves, then throw in more packing paper so that all stuff remain firm.
Packing Fragile Items
Start with arranging all the required material for packing such as double-walled cardboard box, bubble wraps, packing peanuts, etc. Follow the next-step with bubble wrapping items carefully. Then, make a thick bed of packing peanuts on the base of the box and place bubble wrapped items on it.
Now, carefully fill up the vacant space with packing peanuts, packing paper and sponges, just enough to assure that box is packed in tightly, make sure nothing is moving inside the box. And finally, use the tape generously to seal the box.
Special recommendation: only use a fresh box, for it can bear extra pressure is more likely to safe guard content against jolts during transit.
