When shipping glass, one of the crucial tasks is packing the cargo for the transport. When transporting fragile goods simple container will not do. You need to fill the areas between your cargo and walls of the container with substances that will block movement of the glassware during shipment. One of the ways to do that is to fill the box with Styrofoam or soft materials that will stop potential jolting and therefore save your fragile load from breaking. Additionally you could cover your glassware with bubble foil, particularly all the elements that are fine and extra fragile. Close the bubble foil with Scotch tape just to be certain it will not loosen during transport. After wrapping, you should stuff all of the gaps in the container – with Styrofoam or even pieces of cardboard.
If you need to ship big elements of glassware (like mirrors or window glass) you ought to not only shield it from shattering, but also from fracturing. You can surround the glass with substantial layer of bubble wrap, tie it with adhesive tape and store it in a box. Make sure to write on top of the cardboard box that the package is fragile. You may also use pre-made labels for glassware packages.
Small glassware (like goblets or bottles} may be wrapped in outdated magazines, paper or even towels. Next phase is to put them in a cardboard box so that they will not knock against each other during shipment. In similar manner you may package porcelain and crystals. When dealing with big glass products (like chandeliers) it is good to add an extra layer of soft materials, like sponge or towels.
Price of glassware transport varies depending on weight and dimensions of the load, distance as well as delivery days. Another price-defining aspect is whether or not you need professional packing materials and guidance securing the load.
