How to Pack Glasses When Moving
When packing and moving the kitchen, you need to be extra careful when packing fragile items like glasses and cups. Packing is one of the more difficult parts of moving. Especially the trickier items such as wine glasses and coffee mugs. Here are some tips of packing to prevent glasses from breaking.
1. DIFFERENT PACKING SUPPLIES
For glasses and other glassware, I suggest using a medium-size box rather than a large box that may get too heavy and awkward to move. You'll also need packing paper, newsprint, towels, bubble-wrap or other soft material.
2. HOW TO PACK WINE GLASSES FOR MOVING
Wrap each wine glass individually - Start by stuffing the interior and make sure that you wrap the paper around the stem, it can be the most breakable part.
Place only wine glasses in the box – don’t mix other glasses or kitchen wares in with your wine glasses. You can also purchase cell boxes which are specific to packing glasses like wine glasses and other breakable items.
Fill any gaps in the box with newspaper. You won’t want the glasses to move around when they are being transported
Seal the moving box and make sure to write 'Fragile' on the outside
3. HOW TO PACK COFFEE MUGS SO THAT THEY DON’T BREAK
Prepare your moving box. Put a layer of bubble wrap or crumpled up newspaper at the bottom of the box for added cushioning.
Protect the mugs. Just like with wine glasses, you want to protect coffee mugs by filling the inside with crumpled paper. This will help the mug withstand any impact if it gets moved around while you move.
When wrapping the outside of the mug, we recommend that you use 2 or 3 layers of packing paper to help protect it!
Fill any empty spaces in the box with extra newspaper
Don’t forget to write 'fragile' on the outside of your tightly sealed packing boxes.
