Whether to a new city or moving just across the street, moving to a new place is always exciting. Don’t get this excitement ruined by the stress of packing, moving, and transporting your goods safely to your new home. Because of lack of experience and manpower, you might injure yourself or damage your goods. Hire a moving professional to help you out and ease your relocation process.

Pack goods according to their packing requirements and label them, to keep track of your goods, prepare a checklist of your goods. 

How To Pack Household Goods?

Fragile Items

  • Items: Antique, Photo Frames, Dinner Set, Showpieces, Glassware, Ceramicware, Light Fixtures, Cup and Saucers,  Fine Art Pieces, etc.
  • Packing Materials Required: Foam sheet, bubble wrap, filling materials, inflatable airbags, carton boxes, tape, and label
  • How to Pack: To protectively pack your delicate goods do multi-layer packing. Wrap the delicate items in foam sheets and wrap 1-2 layers of bubble wraps. Place them carefully in a cardboard box and fill the extra spaces with inflatable airbags, packing peanuts, or thermocol balls, so they don’t move inside the box and break. Seal the box using strong packing tape and label it as ‘Fragile’ so you know what the box contains and handle it with care.


  • Items: Cot, Cupboard, Sofa, Chairs, Dining Table, Study/Computer Table, Side Tables, Corner Shelves, Teapoy, etc.
  • Packing Materials Required: Suitable disassembly tools, foam edge guard, plastic wrap, moving blankets.
  • How to Pack: To ensure safe moving of your large/bulky furniture, you must first disassemble them using the apt tools, small furniture doesn’t require disassembly. After dismantling, protect the corners of your furniture by placing foam edge guards, then wrap them using plastic wraps and cover them with a moving blanket.
