These items are fragile and if improperly stored may break during transit. Factory-molded foam is often your best way to firmly and securely repack your items for shipment. In addition, they make items more easily identifiable as fragile for movers if you aren’t transporting things on your own. Still need a hand getting from point A to point B?
