Packing Dishes

Dishes are one of the most commonly broken items when moving / storing.  But there are some very simply tips to follow to avoid this:

  • Wrap each dish then stack together.  After wrapping the entire stack, gently tie the group of dishes with twine to keep together and packed.
  • Use specialty storage containers that are a little more durable than boxes such as plastic or heavy-duty cardboard with dish sections
  • Always place dish boxes on top of other items and at the edge of the truck to ensure ease of access and moving of the fragile items.
  • Leave extra space in each box containing dishes and pad edges
  • Do not over-stuff or make boxes containing dishes too heavy to avoid dropping the box when moving.
