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:

  1. It is vital to pack each object separately however endless and tiresome it may seem to you.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Use sturdy boxesIt is worth investing in.
  5. Fill in all the blanks of the boxes with wrapping paper to prevent objects from touching.
  6. 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.
