Tips for Packing Heavy Items

  1. Get the appropriate packing materials.
  2. Wrap all of your items, perhaps in bubble wrap. If your item is very heavy, you may want to consider thicker packing materials.
  3. Use packaging tape. Do not try to use masking or thin tape.
  4. Use bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or pieces of cardboard in order to fill up the empty spaces and prevent the heavy item from moving.
  5. Mark the item if it’s fragile to help prevent damage.
  6. Try to distribute the weight evenly within the box.
  7. Items over 50 pounds should be within a crate, as most boxes will break even with proper tape.

Being aware of these tips for packing heavy items will ensure safe transportation as well as prevent damage to expensive items.
