DISHES AND GLASSWARE
Place a layer of packing inside the bottom and top of cartons containing breakables.
Protect fragile items by wrapping them individually in packing paper (newsprint can be very messy and possibly stain).
Nest cups and bowls, stand plates, saucers, platters, casseroles on their edges. Fill any gaps in the carton with packing (e.g. scrunched paper or linen). This will keep your fragile items well protected and prevent them from moving around in the cartons whilst in transit.
Label all cartons containing fragile items and avoid storing heavy items on the top of these cartons.
