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.
