1. Mirrors and Pictures

When you investigate your house or apartment, you find a dozen of various mirrors available. Some of them are essential part of furniture, the other ones are independent.

Flat, fragile items, such as mirrors, or pictures, are packed only using the top- quality packing materials. They are placed to the properly-sized, custom-made, thick, padded, corrugated cartons. Only one mirror can be placed into a carton. Additionally, it is necessary to:

  • stick the tape across the mirror’s glass surface, in the “X” shape to adsorb shocks;
  • use corner protectors;
  • cover the surface with a cardboard layer and Styrofoam;
  • label the special “fragile” stickers;
  • keep the mirror always upright.

Being loaded to the truck, the cartons with mirrors are fastened with the straps and surrounded by soft items, pads and blankets. We provide safe and top-quality packing and moving truck loading services in Chicago and Los Angeles, guaranteeing that your dear possessions are delivered in their initial condition.

2. Glassware and Fine China

Every individual item, that is plate, dish, bowl or cup is to be wrapped separately. Bubble wrap is preferable for these purposes. Meanwhile, other materials, including the improvised ones such as newspapers, paper towels, etc. can be used. Additionally, for the packing you’ll need:

  • strong, two-wall corrugated cartons;
  • padding for the bottom;
  • pliable cardboard for the items separating.

The cartons with cardboard partitions and individual cells for every item are recommended, especially for the china and other heirloom houseware. Small ones that are designed for packing the loads that weight not more than 10 lbs. are the best. Using the reliable, professional materials, providing affordable packing services, we guarantee the safe delivery of your cherished belongings.

Meanwhile if you prefer DIY packing and using the materials at hand, no problems. The glassware is to be just properly wrapped, separated and padded, with no gaps or piles of fragile items. If people prefer to wrap the glasses, bowls and cups even by socks, it can be sufficient for the glassware protection; the tableware can be only dirty after the unpacking, so, it’s up to you. Professionals of Vitesse Moving & Transfer, Inc. recommend using, reliable, custom, professional packing materials. Providing top-notch packing services in Illinois and California, we make your move smooth and stress-free.

3. Small-Size Domestic Appliances

Small kitchen appliances such as microwave oven, toaster or coffee maker are to be packed and delivered properly, as well. You need to:

  • disassemble and clean them;
  • remove the fragile and component parts;
  • choose the reliable box of the suitable size;
  • use padding for the bottom;
  • wrap the appliance;
  • place it in the box;
  • fill the gaps;
  • secure and label the packing.

Quite naturally, soft paper or tissues can be used for the padding and wrapping. But bubble wrap is the best. Commonly, the label “kitchen” is used. Additionally, the appliances are to be listed in the inventory. It guarantees that you won’t afraid to have any item lost after the unpacking.

Large kitchen appliances are packed and protected in the similar ways. But these works are done only by the experienced professionals, using the special packing supplies, as the challenge is extremely demanding.

Packing materials are diverse. Sometimes, it’s not sufficient to use just the new and professional ones. When we estimate the stuff volume, we measure the special items and order the custom-made corrugated cartons of the special dimensions.
