Tips for packing your plates and glasses

Packing dishes can be a lot of work. Many people get stressed over this particular part of the packing process. However, if you follow a few simple tips, you’ll be able to do it properly. If you handle everything with patience and care, you will not need to worry about transportation, loading, or storage, and you will be packing your plates and glasses without worry. Our advice narrows down to these three categories:

  • Good quality packing materials
  • Packing plates
  • Packing glasses

Good quality packing materials

Be prepared to invest in some packing materials. You want to keep your dishes safe, so this is where you start. Investigate good-quality paper, bubble wrap, and moving boxes. Look for dividers to put between glasses. You don’t want your fragile items rubbing together. Even other household items, like towels, can be very useful when packing your plates and glasses because you  want every item to be surrounded by soft material and unable to get damaged during relocation.

Packing plates

Cover each plate with packing paper. Be sure not to leave any part of the plate exposed. When packing plates into boxes, use as much material on the sides of the box and its bottom. Make sure everything surrounding your plates is soft and secure. Don’t leave free space in the box, the plates should have nowhere to move. However, if you end up with some gaps, fill them with newspapers or some more packing paper. Label your box, so you know where the top and where the bottom is at all times and put all the most fragile items on top. This should help you pack your plates carefully and keep them from harm before moving them to storage.

Packing glasses

Cups and glasses might be the hardest part of packing your dishes. You’ll have to stuff them with packing paper, before totally wrapping them. Crumple the paper a bit, so you create some more padding. Slowly and carefully wrap every single piece. Some of the rules for packing plates apply here as well, such as labeling boxes, cushioning your items inside of the box, and filling the empty spaces with paper. If your cups or glasses are especially fragile and valuable, consider using two boxes when packing, or “double-boxing” your items. When you pack everything into a box, take another, bigger one and make sure that it is nicely padded with paper. Put the smaller box into this one and there – your possessions are much safer already.
