How to Pack Your Dishes in a DishPack

Effective packing is essential to every successful move. It’s always important to select the right box for whatever it is you’re packing. We use the Dish-Pack box, which utilizes double walls for extra durability while moving. Here’s how Elite packs your dishes, with the care and expertise to get them where they need to be safely.

Preparing the Box for Packing Dishes

First, we open the sides to form the top, and then tape the bottom–one strip in the middle, two on the sides, and one that goes around the bottom for extra strength. Then we crumple packing paper, lining the bottom with two layers to form a cushion. You can purchase a proper dishpack box from our box shop!

Packing Your Dishes for Moving

When packing dishes, always pack a Dish-Pack box with the heaviest items on the bottom. We take a plate, wrap it in packing paper, and place it in the box vertically. We follow this for all the plates and align them vertically each time. After the largest plates are packed, we use more packing paper and place crumpled pieces between each plate to keep the plate stable and in place. Then we create another double-layer cushion.

We wrap the mugs the same way, and place them horizontally with cushioning between them. Then we make the final double-layer cushion. It’s important that the box is packed tightly so there isn’t room for items to break. The more packing tape we utilize, the more protected your dishes are.

And that’s how Elite carefully and securely wraps your dishes! Watch our video to get a better idea of how to pack your dishes safely.

With your essential household items prepared and packed for their journey, you can rest easy that they’ll get there safe and sound. As always, if you need help moving anywhere in the USA, call your friends at Elite Moving and Storage.
