Packing your Goods
Always carefully wrap delicate goods in a sheet of plain newsprint. Place the paper along the bottom for added cushioning. Make certain to wrap each piece very carefully, and then wrap in bundles of three using double layers of paper. Place the bundled items in rows along the edge for best security.
Surround the bundles with a lot of crushed paper. However, be careful you don’t leave unfilled spaces. Add several inches of crushed paper along the top of each bundle for protecting rims plus making a level area for the next group. A horizontal cardboard divider is frequently utilized to keep each layer level. Small plates and saucers, along with shallow bowls, should make up the next layer. Wrap up and package the same way you did for the large items.
Stemware should always be individually wrapped using protective paper that’s inserted inside the goblet plus around each stem. The goblet will be cushioned by the wrapping and is placed within a specially designed packing item.
Packing Soft Goods
Soft goods including bedding and pillows should be packed in a line carton and separated with layers of paper.
Packing Your Shoes
Always pack your shoes in original boxes whenever possible. You’ll want to place these in a secure carton. If a shoebox isn’t available, simply individually wrap shoes to prevent any damage. Put newspaper as inserts into the shoes to prevent them from crushing, or use shoe trees as inserts .
All shirts and pants should be left on hangers and hung up in wardrobe boxes , when possible, to minimize wrinkling.
Packing Your Lamps and Shades
Packing your lampshades and lamps should be handled carefully by the wire frame only and placed within a paper line container. Surround each shade with a layer of protective paper. Usually, shades can be stored beside each other provided they are separated with paper.
VSNY Van Lines provides cartons designed to pack lamp bases securely. These types of containers are perfect for garden tools, floor lamps and golf clubs.
Packing Electronics Such As Stereos
Whenever feasible, pack electronic items in original cartons. Make certain to use secure packaging materials including newsprint, file, bubble wrap or sheeting. With this in mind, your electronics can be securely packed in a sturdy box.

Lay books flat in the carton, alternating the spine and open side of the book. Place a piece of paper between books to prevent them sticking together. Because books are heavy, VSNY Van Lines has small book carton to make them easier to carry for workers . If the box you pack books in is too large, the box might rupture. Make sure to only use the smaller book boxes; not large or extra large boxes. Always lay your books flat inside each carton while alternating the open side of each book. It’s recommended to place paper between them for preventing them from sticking together.
Packing Figurines and Fragile Objects
Wrap figurines and statues using bubble wrap, then tightly wrap with some clean paper. When bubble wrap isn’t available, just use the paper to wrap each article until it is sufficiently cushioned.
Bottles should be taped shut and then wrapped with clean newspaper. For added security, place each bottle in watertight bags prior to wrapping or placing in the carton.
Packing Glass and Mirrors
Wrap each picture and mirror in generous amounts of cushioning using clean paper. Always place in a flat or telescoping container. Afterward, tape and seal each carton. Always be certain to stand mirrors, pictures and glass on their edge. Never lay them flat.
Packing Computer Equipment
