When transporting glass, one of the most important things to think about is packing the load safely. When transporting fragile goods simple cardboard box will not be sufficient. You must fill the gaps between your glassware and walls of the container with materials that can help to avoid movement of the glass throughout shipment. Good way to do that is to use Styrofoam or soft materials that will prevent possible tremors and therefore protect your glassware from fracturing. Additionally you need to wrap your cargo with bubble foil, particularly all the parts that are delicate and prone to damage. Fasten the bubble wrap with adhesive tape just to be sure it will not loosen during shipment. When you are done covering, you should pack all of the gaps in the box – with Styrofoam or even pieces of cardboard.
If you need to transport big pieces of glassware (like mirrors or window glass) you have to not only protect it from breaking, but also from scratching. You should surround the glass with thick layer of bubble wrap, secure it with Scotch tape and place it in a container. Remember to mention on top of the box that the box should be handled with care. You could also use pre-made stamps for glassware loads.
Small glassware (like goblets or bottles} could be wrapped in old newspapers, paper or even towels. Next step is to place them in a container so that they won't knock against each other while shipped. The same way you should secure porcelain and crystals. When transporting big glassware items (like chandeliers) it is best to use an extra layer of soft materials, like sponge or towels.
Price of glassware transport varies depending on weight and dimensions of the load, route lenght and delivery days. Other price-defining aspect is whether or not you need professional packing materials as well as aid securing the load.
