How to Pack Figurines and Other Delicate Items

  • Wrap first in tissue paper, paper towels or facial tissue. Then, wrap carefully in newsprint that has been crushed and flattened out. Be sure the items are well protected with plenty of cushioning.
  • Small mirrors, plaques and pictures should be wrapped individually in tissue paper. A bath towel or small blanket makes an excellent outer wrapping and padding for glass. Place items on edge in the box.
  • Many moving companies use bubble pack to exceptionally fragile items. If an item is extremely valuable, as well as delicate, it might be wise to have it packed for you. Special materials might be needed for maximum protection.
