Tips and Tricks: glasses, bowls and cups

… Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in packing paper and placed in boxes. You can buy ones with supports built in from your self-storage facility, which are designed specifically for this purpose. All glass items should be individually wrapped and stacked, whereas cups and bowls should be nested on top of each others. Stand plates, saucers, and platters on their edges. Wrapped glasses should be placed near the top of cartons. Fill all space pockets with packing material (like foam). Label all boxes containing glassware, and do not place heavy items on boxes containing glassware. Stack these boxes on top when planning the layout of your unit.
