The basics of packing fine china for relocation

The biggest mistake most people make when they pack fragile items is not that they did not wrap individual pieces, but were unable to provide them with enough packing to prevent them from moving inside the box. Moving companies can confirm that moving inside the box is the cause of most damage. So it is very important that you double the box and fill both boxes with enough packing material. The goal is to protect each part. And then have enough packing on all sides to add extra protection and prevent shifting while moving boxes.

Make sure you have the right packing equipment

It is very important that you use the right materials when packing fine china for relocation. You have to wrap and pack porcelain with materials that are delicate to porcelain, that can be wrapped in layers. The packing materials used should also be bulky enough to fill the entire space in the box to provide the best cushioning during transport. For best results, use many different types of packing materials, such as tissue paper, large and small bubble packs, packing peanuts, durable large cardboard boxes or double-walled boxes for dishes, scotch tape, and transparent packing tape.

Packing fine china in double boxes

For the best protection, pack your fine porcelain in the way that most insurance companies find it acceptable to be as safe as possible. Start by wrapping all the pieces in several layers of tissue paper. Then fasten it with a small amount of tape. Avoid using newspapers, as most insurance companies do not consider newspapers to be adequate packing material. Go through the tissue paper, wrapping it in a small bubble pack, and tape it over. Next, wrap with a larger bubble pack and tape that also. Get your box and put similar wrapped objects in smaller boxes that fit tightly around the other parts. Make sure you fill in all the empty spaces in the box with peanuts or tissue paper. Pack your wrapped and folded plates, cups, bowls, etc. together.

Thick boxes
You can also use thick boxes for packing fine china for relocation

For packing dishes, you can also use boxes that include thick cardboard partitions. When using these boxes, make sure that you fill in all the empty spaces between the layers and partitions in the box with packing peanuts or tissue paper. Once all items are in smaller boxes, prepare the main large box. Fill the box with at least three inches of packing peanuts at the bottom. Then place the smaller packed box inside. Make sure you have at least 3 inches of free space on all sides and on top of the box. Continue to fill the entire empty space with packing peanuts so that the inside of the box is unable to move. Then close the outer box and secure it with tape.
