When it comes to shipping glass, one of the most important things to think about is packing the cargo beforehand. When transporting fragile goods simple box will not ensure safe transport. You must fill the gaps between your glassware and walls of the container with substances that can stop any jolting of the glass during transport. The best way to do that is to fill the box with Styrofoam or soft materials that will stop potential tremors and therefore protect your fragile cargo from shattering. Furthermore you can cover your cargo with bubble foil, particularly all the parts that are fine and prone to damage. Close the bubble wrap with Scotch tape to make certain the bubble wrap will not loosen during shipment. When you are done covering, you should fil all of the empty space left in the box – 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 breaking, but also from scratching. You could wrap the glassware in substantial sheet of bubble foil, secure it with adhesive tape and deposit it in a container. Do not forget to write on top of the cardboard box that the container contains glassware. You could also use pre-made labels for delicate packages.

Small glassware (like glasses or bottles} can be secured by old newspapers, paper or even towels. Next phase is to store them in a cardboard box so that they won't knock against each other during transport. The same way you can secure porcelain and crystals. When dealing with large glass items (like chandeliers) it is good to use an extra layer of soft materials, like sponge or clothes.

Price of glassware transport is connected with weight and dimensions of the cargo, distance and delivery dates. Additional price-defining factor is whether or not you want to use expert packing materials and help securing the load.
