How to pack glasses and utensils for a trick, so everything arrives immovable
Moving is the worst! I should know: I have had six apartments in 13 years. And while I don’t have many things in the other rooms (I would never consider some
people’s shoe craze), I do have many utensils and glass in my kitchen. I’m most passionate about it; She was my grandmother’s, and I have fond memories of drinking Boost! One of them when I was little (even kids in a South Jersey know who I’m talking about?).
Excellent packing material
Behind the bubble wrap, “Packing paper is more flexible and faster to use than wrapping bubbles. when you quickly put the paper in the glass and crushes the extra paper on the outside. It was fast! Paper not only protects the item but also creates small air pockets when you crush it. The bubble wrap is too bulky and will take up too much space in the box.
Cardboard is also your best friend (compared to plastic boxes) – especially for delicate items. Long boxes are great because you want to pack things vertically as soon as I find out. You can find special dishes and chain boxes, which are double corrugated for extra strength. You will also need packing tape. Many of them
How to tie dishes and glasses to do the trick
Which you will need
1. Tap the bottom of the box
Simply tapping the seam between the box flops is not enough. If you don’t want the box to open when you pick it up, there’s a trick. Tape the seams of the flaps (a few times), then tape the center to move to the other side (make multiple marks), and then tape the edges of these pieces of tape along the side of the box. You’re safe instead of sorry.
2. Make it easy to access the box
You’re dealing with a long box (see above), and you’ll be able to reach the bottom. Richman likes to temporarily tap down two adjacent flaps so he can actually get there to work.
3. Add some recruitment
Apply the ball to some packing paper and make a nice layer of cushions – about three or four inches.
4. Start with the plates
Reachmany says start with the heaviest things (your plates) first. Each one individually. Wrap up
5. Add them to the box
Place each plate vertically in the box (as it stands). “Each one supports the other. Pack the plates nicely and tightly, because you don’t move when you shake the box. When you’re done with that layer, the paper on the sides,” he explained. Add and then top this layer.
6. Roll up the bowls
Start by working with one bowl at a time, placing the corner of a piece of paper inside the bowl, and then crushing the paper around the rest of the bowl.
7. Add them to the box
Again, place the cups next to them. When you have finished the layer, add more balls of packing paper on top.
8. Glass wrapped
They are light and very delicate, so they are called Rachmani for the last time. Wrap them like cups – with some paper inside the glass and the rest crushed around the glass.
9. Add them to the box
They can go to them in a single layer.
10. Close the box
Add a few more balls of packing paper and check the box to check if you hear or feel any movement when you shake it. If you do, fill in some more balls wherever possible. Next, close the box and mark it, so you know what’s inside.
Note: This will look like a lot of paper. It is! But it should be recycled in your area. Or you can go online – try Craigslist or FreeCycle – to see if any office moving services in your area can use your logistics for your next move.
