    I worked as a packer for North American Van Lines for a few years and learned how to pack fragile items so well, the boss would come and sit on our China Cartons. (Those large, very strong boxes.) We used newsprint and made a…tube around the mugs, making sure the handles were well padded. Never, ever had any China, Pottery or fragile items break. Biggest trick is to make sure they don’t move.

    Reference the ‘packing mugs’ video, how about NOT using using plastic for wrapping!! Try paper rope or card strip and glue.
