When it comes to transporting glass, the most important task is packing the load for the transport. In this case simple package will not ensure safe transport. You have to fill the areas between your cargo and walls of the container with substances that can prevent movement of the glassware throughout transport. The best way to ensure that is to use Styrofoam or spongy materials that will block possible tremors and protect your fragile load from shattering. Furthermore you can wrap your load in bubble foil, especially all the parts that are thin and extra fragile. Secure the bubble wrap with adhesive tape just to be certain the bubble wrap will not loosen during shipment. When you finished wrapping, you should fil all of the empty space left in the box – with some spongy material or even newspapers.

If you have to move large pieces of glassware (like mirrors or window glass) you ought to not only secure it from shattering, but also from fracturing. You should surround the glass with thick layer of bubble wrap, secure it with adhesive tape and deposit it in a container. Remember to write on top of the container that the container is fragile. You may also use pre-made stickers for delicate packages.

Smaller glassware (like glasses or bottles} could be wrapped in old newspapers, paper or even towels. Next phase is to store them in a container so that they will not touch during transport. In similar manner you can secure porcelain and crystals. When dealing with big glassware elements (like chandeliers) it is best to use an extra layer of soft materials, like sponge or clothes.

Price of glass shipment hinge on weight and dimensions of the cargo, distance as well as delivery dates. Additional price-defining aspect is whether or not you need professional packing materials and assistance securing the load.
