 Tips on How to Pack Dishes

  • In the moving and packing industry, boxes used to pack dishes are referred to as dish pack barrels. These boxes are sized so that no more than 10lbs can be held inside. If you pack dishes into a box and it are heavier than 10lbs, chances are the box may break or be difficult to move.
  • If there are any spaces inside your box of dishes, insert foam pieces, polystyrene or old newspaper. It’s important to pad the box with any of these before inserting your wrapped items.
  • Wrap each individual dish in newspaper of bubble wrap. By wrapping each piece separately, you are ensuring their safety. Carefully layer each item and pad appropriately when placing into the box.
  • Dishes should always be placed on their edge when packed into boxes as they are stronger that way.
  • Once you have filled your box of dishes, firmly secure the lid with strong, durable tape which is obtainable through Frisco Moving Systems.
