How to Avoid Breaking Your Possessions During a Move

Dan was in a huge hurry to pack his belongings. Always the procrastinator, he put off packing until the last minute, shoving items into boxes, containers, bags—basically anything he could get his hands on. He didn't have the forethought to get bubble wrap for his fragile items, either. Upon arriving at his new place, he opened his kitchen box to find most of his dishes broken, cracked, chipped, and largely unusable. While some preparation would have taken time, it wouldn't have cost him anything to replace. 

Properly packing your belongings is critical. Your goal should be to move them from one place to another in one piece, not a dozen. That's why you need adequate supplies and time, to not break fragile items. If you don't exert care, you could end up like Dan having to shop and replace the items he failed to pack properly.

In hindsight, Dan probably should have hired a moving company like Two Small Men With Big Hearts to box up his kitchen and possibly the rest of his house.
