Commonly Stored Items

Dishes & Glassware

  • We recommend using dishpak boxes.
  • Place a layer of packing inside the bottom and the top of the boxes containing glassware.
  • Pack paper into all open spaces to ensure a tight fit. Make sure all sides of box are cushioned and tightly packed.
  • Protect your fragile goods in bubble wrap, such as dishes and glasses.
  • All glass items should be individually wrapped: nest cups and bowls and stand plates, sauces, and platters on edge.
  • Wrapped glasses should be placed near the top of cartons. Again, fill all pockets with packing.
  • Label all boxes containing glassware, and do not place heavy items on boxes containing glassware.
  • Save room by using towels and blankets to wrap fragile items.

Mirrors, Windows & Screens

  • These items should be stored on edges, not flat.
  • Mirrors should be wrapped in mirror boxes, marked fragile and stacked on their end.
