When you are packing really fragile and often expensive items (for example your best crystal), it is really worth investing in some good quality reinforced packing boxes.
Point 2 – Avoid using newspaper. This will leave unsightly marks on the glass and on you. If you pack your glasses in clean paper, you should be able to use them straight from the box. This will be handy for that glass of Champagne after a hard moving day!
Point 3 – Cushion the bottom of the box with paper or bubble wrap before packing.
Point 4 - Roll each individual glass in several sheets of clean packing paper, paying particular attention to any weak areas like the stem.
Point 5 – Pack all glasses vertically in a box, but pack them with the stems in opposite directions. Fill any gaps in the box with additional rolled up paper, this will eliminate the glasses bashing together.
Point 6 – Tape the box very securely and right the word Fragile all over it.
Point 7 – Make sure the moving company are aware of this box as they can ensure that it is placed in the moving van last.
If you follow these simple tips, you should have a safe and breakage free move.
