Fragile goods

Fragile items are among the most difficult sections of items to transport. In this section you will encounter items created from glass (like mirrors, glass decorations and so on), items from breakable substances and fashioned in uncommon shapes (such as items that have elements that stick out, which absorb most of the impact in case of some collision) and really every item that can be easily damaged while in transportation (e.g. many electronic devices can be considered fragile loads). Often we come across the case in which the item itself normally is not considered to be a delicate cargo, however it has some vulnerable elements (e.g. glass insets or velvet upholstery) and because of them must be considered a fragile cargo during transportation.

Fragile goods have to be shipped with extreme caution because they tend to be easily breaking. Generally it is harder to find a satisfactory transportation for breakable loads and one must be very careful while becoming acquainted with terms and conditions of your arrangement with the hauler. Transport providers frequentely think of a fragile load as atypical load and demand an extra fee.

When you plan to ship fragile cargo, it is all about packaging. You have to find a cardboard that will be as close to the size of the cargo as can be (it would be best if it were its default cardboard). Any space left between the shipped cargo and the cardboard makes the load vulnerable to shocks during transportation, which can lead to fracturing. To fill remaining empty space you can use sponges, old newspapers and Styrofoam.
