Items for transportation should be prepared in advance. You can leave only the items that you use daily or will need on the day of the move.What do you need for packing dishes?
• Small and medium-sized cardboard boxes, suitable containers for dishes, plastic boxes and bags with handles.
• Which packing materials will you need?
• wrapping paper;
• air bubble film;
• granular polystyrene foam;
• corrugated cardboard;
• napkins;
• soft tissue;
• Styrofoam.
You will also need a wide tape, a knife and a marker.
How to pack dishes correctly?
Before packing dishes, the bottom of the boxes needs to be reinforced by putting tape on the outside and a piece of cardboard inside.
There are some simple tips for putting fragile dishes into boxes:
 Each item should be wrapped separately, including the lids.
 Large and heavy items are put down, small ones – on top.
 The voids are filled with foam rubber or special napkins. This will exclude the movement of objects.
 The packed boxes are signed, indicating the fragility of the contents with the marks “FRAGILE! HANDLE WITH CARE”.
 Glasses, goblets and wine glasses are wrapped in packing paper and placed in separate cells made of cardboard strips. Having filled one row, cover it with corrugated cardboard and repeat the process.
 Dishes and cups are stacked in low piles in low boxes, alternating with paper dividers. If you have large boxes, we recommend to place the plates on the edge, laying the foam and making slots to fit the dishes beforehand.
You can protect pots and pans from chips and scratches by wrapping them in a cloth or packing paper. It is better to pack the items into each other. Empty spaces need to be filled with wrapped spoons, forks and other trifles. Metal utensils can be carried in bags that are easy to carry.
It is no longer a secret that packaging is an important part of a move. And in case you have a lot of fragile things, you should approach her as responsible as possible. The best way to survive the move is, of course, to contact a professional moving company. Global Gentle Movers are always happy to make your move go quickly and smoothly. You can order only packing from us or full moving service.
Do not forget to inform the movers or other people who will help you about the boxes of dishes that must be handled with care!

    I cannot recommend this moving company enough! From start to finish, they went above and beyond to make my move as stress-free and easy as possible. From the moment I contacted them, their customer service was outstanding. They were friendly, patient, and answered all my questions thoroughly, putting me at ease and giving me confidence that my move was in good hands. On moving day, the team arrived promptly and got right to work. They were efficient, careful, and respectful of my belongings and my home. They worked tirelessly to make sure everything was packed and loaded safely and securely, and they did it all with a smile on their faces. But what really stood out to me was the kindness and compassion they showed me throughout the entire process. Moving can be an emotional and overwhelming experience, and their team went out of their way to make sure I felt supported and cared for every step of the way. They truly went above and beyond to make my move as smooth and stress-free as possible Thanks again!!!

    I hired Global Gentle Movers based on positive Yelp reviews and availability to accept my move before end of month. The owner, Kiryl, personally ensured I had all necessary packaging supplies. In total, three staff with Tony and Yuriy handled my furniture with care. They were very attentive and proof checked everything was in place before leaving. No elevator in either my previous or current residence however they made light work of it and transferred everything flawlessly. Overall, it was a perfect moving experience with fast response and polite service. I highly recommend and would use them again.
