When it comes to transporting glassware, the most important task is securing the cargo before transport. In this case simple cardboard box will not do. You need to pack the space between your glassware and walls of the package with materials that can stop any jolting of the glass during transport. The best way to do that is to use Styrofoam or soft materials that will stop possible jolting and save your fragile load from damaging. Additionally you could cover your load in bubble foil, particularly all the parts that are delicate and prone to damage. Tie the bubble wrap with Scotch tape just to be certain the bubble wrap will not unfold during shipment. After covering, you need to stuff all of the gaps in the container – with some spongy material or even pieces of cardboard.

If you need to move big items of glassware (like mirrors or window glass) you have to not only secure it from shattering, but also from scratching. You should wrap the glass in thick layer of bubble foil, secure it with adhesive tape and store it in a container. Make sure to mention on top of the package that it is fragile. You may also use pre-made labels for glassware cargo.

Small glassware (like goblets or bottles} could be secured by outdated magazines, paper or even towels. Next phase is to deposit them in a box so that they will not knock against each other while transported. In similar manner you can package porcelain and crystals. When transporting large glass products (like chandeliers) it is good to add an extra layer of soft materials, like sponge or towels.

Price of glassware transport depends on weight and dimensions of the cargo, route lenght and delivery days. Another price-defining factor is whether or not you require using expert packing materials as well as help securing the cargo.
