Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, the last thing you want to deal with is opening up your “fragile” box, only to find a container full of dish shrapnel and ceramic dust. To avoid this mess, your best option is to properly pack dishes and fragile items. Here are some tips to use in order to protect your easily broken goods.
When packing dishes, invest in dish boxes. These boxes help separate breakable items from coming in contact with one another. Damage is most often sustained when two breakable items strike against one another. The dish box provides individual chambers for dishes to help provide added buffer space.
Use plenty of packing paper around every single breakable item. There really is no such thing as using too much. This way, all of the movement within the box is absorbed by the packing paper. Additionally, make sure there is no open air pockets (such as on the top of the box). Fill this area with packing paper as well. There should be no room available for a breakable item to move freely.
If you are packing in layers, make sure there is always a layer of packing material in between. After all, the box likely has enough room for multiple layers of dishes. Crumple up and used either packing paper or newsprint in order to give you this buffer space.
