By no means put hardcover books on their backs as you deteriorate the backbone! Fill within the field (the place the smaller books are) with smooth, light-weight gadgets like stuffed animals, or small pillows, or crumpled unprinted newspaper.
Glassware might be packed in both a e-book field or a dish pack. Wrap the merchandise in bubble first after which wrap once more in newsprint. However, there are some guidelines
When loading a dish pack – place two layers of crumpled newsprint on the underside, then place your bigger gadgets first (like tall vases, pitchers, and so on.) then place one other layer of crumpled newsprint. Now add your subsequent layer of glassware. End with one other layer of crumpled newsprint earlier than closing field.
For fragile china and glassware, use a collection of e-book packing containers. Once more, layer crumpled newsprint on the underside, bubble plate or glass, double wrap merchandise with newsprint and place within the field. Dishes all the time stand on their edge…. by no means flat. Identical with glasses, up & down, by no means flat. Then, place two e-book packing containers inside a dish pack for glorious safety.

These, too, get packed in e-book packing containers.
Clothes -most garments can keep of their dresser drawers. Nonetheless, if it is advisable to pack them, use a medium dimension field and label accordingly. I all the time place a clear piece of newsprint on the underside after which in between his and her gadgets if they’re being packed in the identical field.
