So they tend to start packing their stuff in a hurry into bin bags. In this situation, there is no taking into consideration items that are fragile like bottles and glass utensils, that need to be packed carefully, and that can get damaged during the moving process. In other cases, there is not taking into account by some people that there are items that might be heavy, such as books, for example, that would need strong cardboard or plastic boxes, taking into account the weight of heavy items like books.
