When it comes to shipping glassware, one of the crucial things to think about is securing the cargo for the transport. When transporting fragile goods simple package will not do. You need to pack the gaps between your glassware and walls of the box with materials that can help to avoid any jolting of the glassware during shipment. One of the ways to ensure that is to fill the box with Styrofoam or spongy materials that will block potential jolting and therefore protect your glassware from damaging. Furthermore you need to wrap your cargo with bubble foil, especially all the elements that are delicate and prone to damage. Tie the bubble wrap with Scotch tape to make certain it will not loosen during shipment. When you are done wrapping, you need to fil all of the gaps in the container – with Styrofoam or even newspapers.

If you want to move big pieces of glassware (like mirrors or glass shelves) you ought to not only secure it from shattering, but also from fracturing. You must wrap the glass in thick layer of bubble wrap, tie it with adhesive tape and store it in a cardboard box. Do not forget to mention on top of the package that it contains glassware. You can also use pre-made labels for fragile packages.

Smaller glassware (like glasses or bottles} may be secured by old newspapers, paper or even towels. Next step is to deposit them in a box so that they will not knock against each other during shipment. In similar manner you may package porcelain and crystals. When transporting large glass elements (like chandeliers) it is best to add an extra layer of soft materials, like sponge or towels.

Price of glass shipment varies depending on weight and dimensions of the load, distance as well as delivery dates. Additional price-defining factor is whether or not you need professional packing materials as well as help securing the load.
