Do you plan on moving your household anytime soon, but are worried about moving your large, fragile items? Determining the best way to pack and protect large items like flat-screen TVs, one-of-a-kind artwork, and large mirrors can be a constant a struggle. Luckily, the Chicago long-distance movers at Pickens Kane are here to help by sharing how you can move large, fragile items like a pro. 

Moving Tips for Professional Moving Companies 

The first step in safely moving your large, fragile items is working with a professional moving company like Pickens Kane. Since opening up for business in 1914, our Chicago moving company has learned all the dos and don’ts of moving large, fragile items. 

Here are some expert packing tips that Pickens Kane uses to ensure that even the most fragile items arrive from point A to point B safely:

  • Use moving pads to give large, fragile items an extra layer of protection during transport.
  • To ensure that fragile items don’t have a lot of wiggle room, consider using wood crating. 
  • Use custom moving boxes that are designed for breakable items such as flat-screen TVs. 

How You Can Protect Your Large, Fragile Items

Even though your moving company will probably be doing most of the packing for you, there are still some precautions that you can take that don’t involve packing. Here at Pickens Cane, our Chicago moving experts recommend recording the condition of your items, taking proper inventory, and purchasing full-valuation coverage:

  • Document the condition of your fragile items by taking pictures prior to moving day.
  • Take inventory on paper or electronically to account for potential lost or stolen items. 
  • Get reimbursed for the full replacement value of broken items by purchasing full-valuation coverage
