It's a terrible feeling to be unpacking a box and hearing something inside that's broken. If you follow these simple instructions, you'll be able to make the move without any damage to your special items.

China Plates - To begin put a 3-4 inches of clean packing paper on the bottom of the container. Wrap each plate in two or three sheets of packing paper and stack three or four plates together. Then wrap each stack with another two or three sheets of packing paper.

Place this bundle into the container in a standing position on edge. Continue in this manner until you have a row of wrapped plates across the bottom of the carton. Keep the row snug so that they will stand up straight. If there are not enough plates to complete the bottom row, use good sturdy pieces such as soup bowls and gravy boats to do so. Next place another layer of crushed paper over the tier of plates.

if you have room in your box for another layer of China, put in the larger pieces making sure that they are wrapped in enough paper so that they will remain motionless during the move. When the box is full tape it shut and mark it clearly with the word FRAGILE!

Bowls and Cups - Wrap the cups individually and place them upside down with their handles pointing to the inside of the box. Use lots of packing paper to make sure that the cups don't bump into each other during a move. The cups should be on the top layer of the box.

Larger bowls should be wrapped and nested into each other and packed upside down. Smaller bowls may be handled the same as cups. To save space, smaller items may be packed inside bowls, canisters, etc. Sugar bowl lids should be wrapped in tissue paper and placed upside down on top of the bowl. The bowl should then be wrapped in 2 sheets of paper.

Stemware, Fragile Glasses and Figurines - These items should be wrapped individually and packed in celled cartons wherever possible. Be sure to protect them with plenty of cushioning. (Bubble wrap gives additional padding.) Wrap small pieces of crystal and figurines in colored tissue paper to avoid throwing a valuable treasure out with the packing paper by mistake!

Silverware and Stainless Steel Flatware - Wrap silverware individually in paper with a low sulfur content or in clear plastic to prevent scratching and tarnishing. Put the pieces in your silver chest and pad it well. Wrap the chest in paper or a large towel and place it at the bottom of a box or carton. Stainless steel flatware will not require any special packing paper. Simply wrap individually or in sets. Other large silver pieces should be wrapped in clear plastic and then in clean paper. Pad well for packing.

If you follow all these instructions carefully, I'm sure that you will protect all of your valuable china and flatware.
