1. Take time
When packing for precious items, it should not be rushed. Spare some time to make sure that it will be done properly and with precaution. Some things come to an irregular size. You also need to consider the boxes that you have to use with these kinds of items. The trick is start planning on how to pack these things at least a couple of weeks before the move.
2. The Tiered Stacking
The plates and glasses are one of the things that are at risk of being damaged during the move. Prepare a box but don’t forget to use a support before stacking your stuff inside. You can use a bubble wrap that will serve as a cushion then add some cloth and repeat the process. It reduces the impact it can get from the road bumps.

If you can practice these three essential tips, your valuables should be safe and secure even on a long travel time. I’m pretty sure a little road bump can do no harm with your precious stuff.
