When shipping glass, one of the crucial things to think about is packing the load beforehand. When transporting fragile goods simple package will not ensure safe transport. You have to pack the gaps between your load and walls of the package with substances that will help to avoid any jolting of the glass during transport. One of the ways to guarantee that is to fill the box with Styrofoam or spongy materials that will block potential jolting and save your glass from shattering. Additionally you should wrap your load with bubble wrap, especially all the elements that are fine and extra fragile. Secure the bubble foil with Scotch tape just to be sure the bubble wrap won’t unfold during transport. When you finished covering, you should pack all of the empty space left in the container – with some spongy material or even pieces of cardboard.

If you have to move large elements of glassware (like mirrors or glass shelves) you have to not only shield it from shattering, but also from fracturing. You can surround the glass with substantial sheet of bubble wrap, fasten it with Scotch tape and put it in a cardboard box. Make sure to mention on top of the cardboard box that the container should be handled with care. You can also use pre-made labels for glassware loads.

Smaller glassware (like glasses or bottles} could be secured by old newspapers, paper or even clothes. Next step is to place them in a box so that they won't touch during shipment. In similar manner you should package porcelain and crystals. When shipping big glass items (like chandeliers) it is good to add an extra layer of soft materials, like sponge or towels.

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