We’ve been in the moving business for a long time and in that time we have come to learn that all a person’s furniture is fragile and should be treated as such. However, there are also the kind of fragile items that are more fragile than others. Trek Removals has learnt to deal with them in the most delicate and effective ways.
Fragile items are usually valuable, either sentimentally or financially, which is why it pays to have them professionally packed and transported. You don’t want to risk breakage or damage by doing it yourself unless you are extremely protective over these items, which is entirely understandable.
Fragile goods come in all shapes and sizes and require different specialised handling. Here’s a brief list of types of fragile items we have encountered and dealt with before:
- Artwork – paintings & sculptures
- Bottles – often wine collections or old liquor collections
- Ceramics, Chinaware & Glassware
- Crematory remains – the ashes of loved ones is a common item to be transported
- Electronics of a delicate nature – may include televisions and computers
- Fireworks/flammable/explosive materials
- Household articles such as lamps, coffee tables, objects made from wood and glass
- Musical instruments – pianos and guitars are the most common but it could be anything from a violin to a whole orchestra!
- Ornaments – China, glass, crystal, ceramic etc.
- Perishables – as in flowers, potted plants, food, medicines
- Sporting goods equipment
These are just some examples of what can be considered fragile.
