How to Make a Moving BoxRead More
Making a moving box is really pretty simple. Watch as we build a moving box and give you some tips to make packing easier.
- Folding the top flaps down make it easier to pack. You don’t have to reach as far down into the box and you can clearly see where the top of the box is so you don’t over fill the box.
- After your box is packed make sure to tape the top of your box, this makes stacking easier.
- As soon as a box is packed tape it and label it, if you wait to label you will forget what is inside.
Moving Tips: How To Pack Wine for MovingRead More
Moving Tip: If you’re moving locally in San Jose you don’t need a special wine box to pack wine when moving a short distance, just use a book box. The special boxes are expensive.
Moving tip: We do recommend special boxes if you are moving cross country. Those boxes have Styrofoam inserts to help protect against temperature changes when traveling cross country.Steps for Packing Wine for Moving :
- Place crumbled paper on the bottom of a book box
- Wrap each bottle in paper and lay them down in the box. The paper will help to keep them cool and create padding so the bottles do not break.
- Leave a couple inches at the top of the box for more paper and seal your box.
- Label the box on the top and sides “wine” so you can locate them easily at the new house.
Bonus moving tip: If you do not plan on unpacking the wine right away simply place the box(es) in a cool spot and they will be fine until you get around to unpacking.

Packing your kitchen dishes and stemware properly for moving is essential to making sure everything gets to the final destination without casualties. Packing & moving is stressful and everyone always worries about packing properly. Following our instructions you can be sure everything gets to the other end without any damage. The key to successful packing is PAPER. You want to use lots of paper to wrap the dishes and glasses.
- Newspaper or Newsprint
- Boxes (dish packs are thicker and sturdier for packing breakables)
Tips for packing:
- First place a table pad or cardboard box on your table to protect the table from scratching
- Then gather up all your supplies
- Lay out a stack of paper (you can use newspaper but the ink can be messy, newsprint is cleaner)
- Set the items to be packed on the table so you can reach them easily and don’t have to walk back and forth to the cupboards
- After you have a box built crumble some paper in the bottom of the box (dish packs are best for breakables because the box is thicker and more sturdy)
- Then starting with your plates you can begin wrapping your breakables and placing them in the box TIP: Plates are strongest when stood on end and not laying down
- Put a couple sheets of paper in between each layer as you are packing
- The top row of your box you can put lighter items such as stemware or tupperware
- Place a few sheets of paper on the top and close the box
