A Note on Packing Glass and China:
All stackable pieces such as plates or bowls are stacked together with a layer of bubblewrap in between them and secured so that they stay together in transit, using additional layers of bubblewrap where necessary. Hollow pieces such as teacups, teapots or wine glasses, are stuffed with tissue paper to cushion against shock, and all knobs, handles and stems are also wrapped in tissue paper, then each item is individually bubblewrapped.
For shipment, I use either Post Office Priority Mail boxes or new 200lb strength corrugated boxes ordered from Uline.
The bottom of the box is cushioned with at least 2 inches of styrofoam packing peanuts before the first item goes in. The items will then be layered in the box, heaviest first, with enough packing peanuts and crumpled paper in between them to cushion them and prevent them from shifting in transit. The box will be topped off with more peanuts or paper to fill every space tightly. If there are many pieces in a large box, such as a set of dishes, the box will be double boxed - the first box set inside a larger box with crumpled newspaper in between the two boxes - to strengthen and stiffen the whole package.
The boxes will then be sealed with heavy clear packing tape and marked "Fragile" or "Glass" with bright red labels on the top and sides of the box. I always ship insured for items over $20 in value. With my system of packing, I have had no problem collecting insurance on those very rare occasions when something has broken.
What Our Customers Say:
Your package was taken to the local PO for pick-up. We retrieved it yesterday and very exceedingly impressed with the volumes of packing materials. The glasses are in such perfect condition and clean, clean, clean. We had to open and enjoy a bottle of great champagne last night to celebrate our prowess at winning such treasures. We are delighted and thank you for putting this beautiful collection up for auction. We shall continue watching your site.
Thank you most sincerely,
Marilyn and Eric Lidquist
