When transporting glassware, one of the crucial tasks is packing the cargo before transport. When transporting fragile goods simple package will not be enough. You need to fill the gaps between your cargo and walls of the package with materials that will prevent movement of the glass throughout shipment. The best way to do that is to fill the package with Styrofoam or soft materials that will prevent possible jolting and save your fragile cargo from damaging. Furthermore you can cover your load with bubble wrap, especially all the elements that are fine and extra fragile. Tie the bubble foil with adhesive tape just to be certain it will not unfold during transport. When you are done covering, you need to pack all of the empty space left in the box – with some spongy material or even newspapers.

If you want to move big pieces of glassware (like mirrors or window glass) you need to not only shield it from breaking, but also from scratching. You must wrap the glassware in thick sheet of bubble foil, tie it with Scotch tape and store it in a box. Make sure to mention on top of the container that the container is fragile. You can also use pre-made stamps for fragile loads.

Smaller glassware (like glasses or bottles} may be wrapped in outdated magazines, paper or even towels. Next step is to place them in a container so that they won't knock against each other while transported. The same way you may package porcelain and crystals. When shipping big glass elements (like chandeliers) it is best to add an extra layer of soft materials, e.g. sponge or clothes.

Price of glassware transport depends on weight and dimensions of the load, distance as well as delivery dates. Another price-defining aspect is whether or not you want to use professional packing materials and aid securing the load.
