Fragile goods

Fragile items are among the hardest categories of loads. Here you will encounter products made of glass (e.g. mirrors, glass decorations and so on), items from breakable substances and formed in uncommon shapes (for example furniture with elements that stick out, that absorb a big part of the impact when something bumps into it) and basically just about every item that can be easily damaged while in shipment (like many electronic devices can be thought of as fragile goods). On many occasions we come across the situation where the item itself normally is not believed to be a fragile load, but it contains some vulnerable parts (e.g. glass insets or velvet upholstery) and because of them should be considered a delicate cargo during transportation.

Fragile cargos have to be shipped with extreme care as they tend to be easily breaking. Generally it is more difficult to come across a satisfactory transportation for fragile loads and one must be very careful while reading terms and conditions of your arrangement with the hauler. Haulers often consider fragile load to be atypical cargo and therefore request an additional fee.

When you plan to ship delicate goods, the packaging is the most important matter. You have to find a cardboard that will be as close to the size of the cargo as can be (ideally its original box). All of the extra space between the transported load and the cardboard makes the load exposed to shocks during transportation, which can lead to fracturing. To fill remaining empty space you can use bits of sponge, packing paper and Styrofoam.
