Packing Flatware and platespacking tips

  • Choose our Dish Packs and place a stack of wrapping paper on the table.The sheets should be large enough to accommodate the plates or object you need to pack.
  • Place the first plate in the center of the top sheet and fold one corner of the sheet over the plate until it's completely covered.
  • Take the next plate and place it on top of the first plate.
  • Wrap the remaining three corners of the wrapping paper over the second plate.
  • Secure the wrapping paper with packing tape.
  • Place the two plates in the box on their side. Plates should never be packed flat. If the box encounters any kind of force, plates on their edge can sustain a lot more pressure. Continue wrapping and placing the plates in the box until the box it tightly packed.
  • Fold in the edges of the bubble wrap so the plates are covered/ protected.
  • Mark the box "Fragile", list the items on the outside and their location: "Kitchen" or "Dining Room".
  • Place heavier items on the bottom; lighter items on top.
  • The box you use shouldn't be too big. Remember, the maximum weight should be 50 lbs.
