How to Pack Dishes Safely for Your Move
If you’re planning a move and thinking about packing your kitchen, you want to know how to pack your dishes. If you don’t fill your containers, plates, bowls, cups, mugs, and glasses securely, they are likely to break during transport or storage. To avoid this, we give you step-by-step instructions on how to pack your dishes safely for a move.
Do I have to use moving boxes for my move?
We know that there are various costs associated with moving and that you want to avoid buying things you don’t need. Furthermore, We also know that you want to avoid packing your dishes, cups, and glasses for your move, only to find that they are broken and need replacing when you arrive at your new home.
When should I use a dish box?
Yes, dish boxes are a little more expensive than your average moving box, but they’re much thicker, more protective, and more durable. If you are planning on shipping, storing, or transporting your dishes long distances or moving them abroad, we strongly recommend packing your plates, bowls, and glasses in dish boxes.
Moreover, when you ship or store your boxes, they are stacked on top of each other. Regular moving boxes collapse under the weight of heavier packages. Crockery boxes are more sturdily constructed to prevent this from happening. Tableware boxes protect your favorite tableware and glassware.
Step-by-step guide on how to pack dishes safely?
Step 1: Assembling and glue the moving boxes
Fold up one end of the box and secure it with good-quality packing tape. In addition, remember that your dishes will be heavy; use enough tape to hold the box together

Fold the wrapping paper to line the bottom of the box. The wrapping paper should be kept from being folded. Also, use the gift wrap balls to protect your dishes best.
Step 3: Pack your dishes, plates, bowls, cups, and glasses

When packing your dishes in a moving box, start with heavier items first. Place your serving bowls, dinner plates, and bowls in the bottom of the box. Indeed. put the lighter glasses, e.g wine glasses, in the upper part of the box. Stem wine glasses should be packed with particular care.
