Pack wine

For packing wine, you will need wine bottles, wrapping material, firm boxes, wine carriers, and strong tape. Get all the right packing supplies before you start with packing your wine. For moving long-distance,  a wine carrier is highly recommended. Secure bottles with wrapping material. Tape up the box and don’t forget to label it. If you don’t have a wine carrier, make a custom wine box from a strong moving box.

Pack liquor bottles

Packing liquor bottles is similar to packing wine bottles. Find a bottle carrier (in a liquor store, for example) or make your own cell box. For a local relocation, you can just wrap bottles with newspapers or air bubble foil, but it is not the case for a long-distance relocation. Because they last longer and bottles will be in a moving vehicle all day. For more protection, wrap bottles twice.

Pack glassware and barware

Packing glassware is a delicate job. Get a dish carton, tape, packing paper, cell dividers, strong and new moving boxes. Make the bottom of the box soft, by putting crumbled packing paper before putting glassware or barware. Wrap the glass and place the glass rim side down into the first cell, that should be your start. After placing all the glasses, add more packing paper inside of a box. In the end, tape the box, and don’t forget to label it.
