Worried about sending fragile items? Whether it is wine glasses, or a delicate china vase, at Fox’s Pacier Sprints we have the top tips to ensure that you can safely send fragile items. No matter where you may be sending fragile items, you can be sure that with these tips, your items will reach their final destination in one piece.

1. Choose the Right Box

When it comes to sending fragile items, it is essential that you use the right box for the job. We recommend using a rigid, lightweight box to ensure that the items are safe and secure during transit. The box should also be a bit larger than the items to ensure that there is enough room for additional padding to protect the fragile items held within the box.

2. Padding and Protection

Once you have found the right box for the job, we recommend adding in padding and extra protection to the box. Padding comes in a number of forms, including bubble wrap and packing peanuts which are designed specifically to protect fragile items. However, old newspapers or shreddings of paper can also be used to fill in any gaps in the box. This will keep the items in place during the delivery, protecting them from any damage.
