Fragile goods

Delicate loads are among the most difficult sections of items to ship. Here you will encounter items made of glass (like mirrors, glass vessels etc.), cargos made from breakable materials and formed in uncommon shapes (e.g. furniture that have elements that stick out, that take a big part of the impact in case of some collision) and really just about every item that’s delicate during shipment (like many electronic devices can be thought of as delicate cargo). Often we come across the situation where the item itself is not considered to be a fragile cargo, but it has some fragile parts (e.g. glass insets or velvet upholstery) and because of them should be considered a delicate cargo during transportation.

Delicate goods ought to be transported with great caution because they tend to be prone to damage. Generally it is harder to come across a suitable transportation for delicate items and one have to be very cautious while reading terms and conditions of your arrangement with the hauler. Haulers frequentely think of a fragile load as atypical cargo and therefore request an additional fee.

When it comes to transporting fragile goods, it is all about packaging. You have to start with finding a cardboard that will be as close to the size of the load as possible (ideally its original cardboard). All of the space left between the shipped cargo and the cardboard makes the load exposed to vibrations during shipment, which may cause breaking. To fill remaining empty space you can use bits of sponge, old newspapers and Styrofoam.
