Packing is by far the most dreaded task that comes with the moving process. From having to organize and label your boxes to make sure everything is secure and safe, to figuring out what is even going where, packing can be extremely tedious and stressful.
Additionally, a lot of items require special packing to make sure they don’t break or get damaged during your move, which can take up even more time and be even more frustrating to deal with.
So what kind of items are we specifically talking about here? Well, for one, candles. We accumulate them so easily, but when it comes to a move, they can be easily forgotten until the last minute. Then, you’re left with a bunch of glass that you need to protect and move very carefully. Plus, you have to take extra care to make sure they don’t melt when travelling – especially if you’re traveling long distances!
Packing Delicate Items
Candles may seem like a weird thing to worry about in the midst of your busy moving process, but because so many of us have a lot of them, they can become a real concern. Additionally, packing candles is very much like packing other glass items, and can give you a head start on packing delicate items in general.
Candles can hold a lot of monetary value, as well as sentimental value to people. They’re also a really big part of household ambiance for people, and make a big difference in making a house feel like a home.
Unfortunately, moving candles is a delicate practice that requires a lot of care. So how do you pack and keep them safe?
How to Pack Candles
Candles can mean a lot of things to a lot of people, and need to be treated with the utmost care during a move in order to make sure they reach their destination safely and smoothly. No matter how far you’re taking them, pack them securely and keep them separated from other items to keep them safe.
As if packing candles wasn’t stressful enough, packing other fragile items can be even tougher. To make sure your things are packed and moved with the utmost care, check out Hollander Storage & Moving Co’s professional packing and moving services.

The driver was the head of the crew, and he was on top of everything. He made the experience working with Hollander Moving a pleasure. We have used others before but it was our first time using Hollander. Everything turned out great.
Every employee I worked with was courteous, professional, and exceedingly competent. I was nervous about the packing and long distance move (from Illinois to New Mexico, October 2009) and Hollander helped make the move as smooth as possible. Not a thing was damaged or broken
I would recommend Hollander to any company thinking about switching vendors, and any family making a move. A Hollander rep even stopped by my new place when they were unloading just to check on things.
Wonderful service – first class!
Everything Hollander has done was over the top. It was courteous people, polite, caring. Their friendliness was over the top. There was one member of the crew who’d been a friend for 30 years, and the rest was family. I couldn’t say enough about them.
I recently moved from Chicago to Tampa and expected a few road bumps along the way but was pleasantly surprised when everything from loading to delivery was flawless. Everyone I came in contact with was very professional and knowledgable. I highly recommend Hollander Moving and Storage as they are a class act.
This move envolved packing and delivery to four different destinations. Attention to detail and coordination were vital and effectively executed by Tony R driver and his crew. Ardene did a great job coordinating everything. The entire group were both extremely pleasant and efficient.
