June 7, 2018

When moving, there’s nothing harder than having to pack wine glasses or other such items. These tricky items can cause you a lot of headaches and can cost you a lot of time, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. Most importantly, they’re very sensible. So one mistake is usually enough to break some if not all of the wine glasses you’re trying to move.

At Empire Movers, we have extensive experience moving such delicate items. That’s why we’ve put together this list of tips that we guarantee will help you out next time you’re looking to pack wine glasses. And it doesn’t matter if you’re doing it to move or just to store them away somewhere. These tips will definitely come in handy.

How to best pack wine glasses

  1. Wrap each wine glass individually

If you’ve ever dealt with breakable items, you probably already know this. Start by stuffing the interior of the wine glass. Once this step is finished, make sure that you wrap paper around the stem of the glass. This is usually the most breakable part for these types of items.

  1. Pack the wine glasses in their own box

Don’t pack wine glasses with mugs or other glasses. Keep them in their own box. You may even want to purchase cell boxes, a type of boxes specific to packing wine glasses and other breakable items.

  1. Fill the box with newspaper

This step is very important. Make sure that you fill all the empty space inside the box with newspaper. This way, your wine glasses won’t move around while they are transported to the new location. Thus, the chances of them breaking drop quite a lot.

  1. Add a Fragile tag to the moving box

Once packing is done, seal the box and make sure that you add a “Fragile” tag on it. You can use sticky notes or markers, but make sure that the tag is visible.
