How to pack glassware and crockery when moving house
A few weeks ago I made the decision to move house. I finally summoned up my courage and patience and undertook the arduous mission of packing up a whole life.
The most complicated thing for me was packing my porcelain tableware, which was a wedding gift from my in-laws, and the glassware from Murano of our honeymoon trip to Venice.
I consulted with a number of experts and followed a series of very useful tips:
- It is vital to pack each object separately however endless and tiresome it may seem to you.
- It is best to use wrapping paper in a neutral colour. If you want to reinforce the resistance, also use bubble wrap on the objects that you consider more delicate.
- Newsprint can be used, although there is a risk that it could be used as an alternative. stain your crockery and then you have to clean each piece.
- Use sturdy boxesIt is worth investing in.
- Fill in all the blanks of the boxes with wrapping paper to prevent objects from touching.
- Label the boxes with the mythical phrase: "VERY FRAGILE". to ensure that the you can easily identify and take special care when handling and unpacking.
If you follow these tips to the letter, I guarantee that your crockery and glassware will arrive safely and soundly to your new home and you you will avoid a lot of unpleasantness.
However, it is best if this task is carried out by a company specialising in removals. You will save yourself a lot of time and effort and your items will be safe.
