When packing china and other delicate items, you can use a dish pack for a long-distance move. Dish packs are usually sturdier corrugated cartons with double walls designed for packing china, glassware, and other precarious objects less than 18 inches in size. Here are assiduous tips that will ease your anxieties about moving your breakables.
Tips for Packing Breakable Dishes
- Wrap and heap plates in groups of four or more, and bowls in groups of two to three. Before packing, wrap china independently.
- Wrap glasses and mugs separately.
- Roll a folded sheet of paper around the stem of a wine glass before enclosing it in packing paper.
- Wrap items with lids, such as teapots, in paper and then in more paper to form a stack.
- Pack pieces in the crinkled paper-lined dish pack, starting with the heaviest items. Put stacks of plates and bowls on their sides. Layers should be separated with cardboard, and cell packs should be used for glasses and stemware, as well as collectibles or other breakable items.
Packing Dishes Carefully
Larger china and glass plates, platters, as well as other flat parts are usually used as the dish pack's bottom layer. Fill the bottom of a carton with cushioning material to protect. Rumpled or overlapped paper offers more support & cushioning. Wrap each piece separately, then double-wrap up to three in a bundle with newspaper. Put these bundled items in a queue on the carton's edge. Encompass each package with crumbled paper, taking care not to leave any empty spaces. Cover the bundle with two or three inches of crumbled paper to protect the rims and create a level base for the next tier.
Horizontal cardboard dividers can assist you to keep your layers level. A second layer can be smaller plates, saucers, and shallow bowls. Wrap and pack smaller items in the same manner as larger items. Based on their weight, these could be used as the bottom or middle layers. Wrap in the same manner as flat plates.
Fine China Packing
Wrap each piece of china and glassware in clean paper. Begin from the corner, wrapping diagonal direction and repeatedly tucking in overlapping edges with several sheets of paper. As an external wrapping, a double layer of newspaper works well. A good quantity of paper cushioning and padding is recommended for all china and glassware.
Diligently Organizing Wine Glasses
Careful planning and packing can alleviate the risk of damage to wine glasses and wine wastages. Bottles and glassware can be packed in specially designed boxes.
Shallow bowls should be placed on the edge of the carton, and deeper bowls (such as blending bowls) should be enclosed two or three together, upside down on their rims. Enclose the cups separately, even if you're using a dish pack for china, and safeguard the handles with an additional layer of paper. Bundle all of the cups inverted. If you do not have a dish pack or cells, wrap the cups in a double layer of paper and put them upside down on the rims in a column on an upper layer, all handles facing the same orientation. Finish the layer in the same way that you did for the plates.
