Make sure you wrap all glass separately using newspaper, butchers paper or bubble wrap when packing glass into boxes. At the top and bottom of all boxes containing glass make sure it is well padded with one of the above materials ( with paper just lightly screw up and place and bottom and top of boxes for cushioning)



Chandeliers that are made up of fragile glass also require the same level of attention.  Luxurious chandeliers do not come cheap and should be carefully removed by an expert removalist.  We have plenty of experience in the delicate removing of large or small chandeliers.  There should never be any hindrance in the storing and relocating of the chandelier.  The removals of this piece of furniture must be precise and accurate.  The service that we provide is one of excellence and experience and we specialise in fragile and antique furniture.
