How to pack valuable items

As a local moving company, You Move Me is often tasked with moving valuable items like antiques and even fragile museum pieces. We’re proud to say that we possess some of the greatest professionals and equipment in Atlanta, and we’re skilled at both packing and moving valuable items.

Although we do have skilled hands and comprehensive insurance, here are some tips for packing precious items for your next move.

Get the right boxes

Free boxes are always a nice thing to have when you're moving, but for some of your most valuable items you may want to buy high-grade packing boxes or even plastic crates with professional packing material.

Tape paintings

Something as simple as taping up your frames and photographs can actually make a big impact on preserving their integrity. Putting an X with masking tape on your glass surfaces can actually keep glass from shattering.

Create an inventory

With an inventory, our professionals will know exactly where your valuables are at all times. It will also help us to strategize where to pack your most important items. Remember to label boxes when possible to help with the unpacking and packing process.

Invest in bubble wrap and packing material

It’s impossible to over-pack and over-protect valuable items like dishes or collectibles. Tape up collectibles with bubble wrap, and wrap dishes in several layers of paper to protect them even over short distance moves.
