If you are moving to or from the Abacao area or any place and you have luxury items or breakables it's best to wait to pack breakables as many of them sometimes over pack these items or mis organize them, causing them to crack, chip or even shatter.
In the event you decide to pack your breakables yourself, be sure you have most of the other items in your house already packed. When you start to pack your breakables, realize that it will probably take more time to do than it did for the rest of the items in your home and plan accordingly so that you don’t wait last minute and run out of time before moving day. Please, do not try to rush through packing these items as it should take longer for a reason…so that you’re careful with them.
Easily breakable items should be carefully wrapped in “unprinted” newspaper before being placed into a box. If you are not using Bridgetown to help you, you will want to use the extra time we mentioned to make sure they are done as safely as possible and line the bottom of the box with a bubble wrap or other form of cushioning. For items of significant value, whether monetarily or sentimentally, it is recommended to use bubble wrap.
Those are just a few tips to consider when packing your breakables. If you do choose to do it yourself, and encounter any issues, please feel free to contact us.
Remember, that these tips only reduce the risk of damage to your breakables. Your best bet is to hire a professional who knows and is trained in the “art” of packing breakables.
