Very Fragile, Glass, China
Have heirloom crystal or china to pass on to your grandchildren? Even when they live across the country, there is no reason to lose hope. At Pak Mail Traverse City, we specialize in packaging very fragile pieces for shipping even if they are going 2000 miles away.
Pak Mail has strict standards for packaging and shipping very fragile and valuable fine china. We require our packers to individually bubble wrap each piece before placing them in a box cushioned with packing peanuts. This box is again placed in a larger container which is intended to take the brunt of all handling, shock and vibration while in transit. We refer to this packaging technique as double boxing.
Moving companies typically use large boxes for packing dishes but we prefer to use smaller boxes for ease of handling by the shipper. Smaller boxes also result in lighter overall weight that also reduces the stress on the bottom pieces.
If there is concern about transporting your china or crystal to Pak Mail, we can help. We are happy to pack dishes at your home, anywhere in the surrounding areas., and transport them to our shop for shipping. We don’t want anything to get in the way of passing on a family legacy.
