Helpful Guide to Self Packing China

Packing China for a removal requires special care to ensure everything arrives safely. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you with the process:

Gather Supplies

– Get professional cardboard boxes in different sizes suitable for your China items.

– Purchase packing paper, bubble wrap, allow enough for cushioning.

– Have packing tape, markers, and labels ready for sealing and identification.

Organise and Sort

– Separate your China items based on size, fragility, and material (e.g., plates, cups, bowls).

– Remove any items that require special care or separate packaging.

Prep the Boxes

– Reinforce the bottom of each cardboard box with packing tape for added strength.

Wrap Individual Items

– Start with the most delicate pieces. Wrap each item in packing paper individually.

– Secure the wrapping with tape, so it doesn’t come undone during transit.

Layering and Cushioning

– Place a layer of crumpled packing paper at the bottom of the box for cushioning.

– Carefully place wrapped China items on top, making sure they don’t touch each other.

Separation and Padding

– Use crumpled packing to keep items separate and prevent contact.

– Fill any gaps with paper for added padding.

Seal and Label

– Close the box securely with packing tape, making sure there are no openings.

– Label each box with a description of its contents and mark them as “Fragile” or “China.”

Fill Larger Boxes Wisely

– For larger boxes with multiple layers of China, repeat the wrapping, layering, and cushioning steps for each layer.

Remember, handling China requires patience and attention to detail. By following these steps, you’ll increase the chances of your precious China arriving safely at your new destination.
