Don't Scrimp On Space
Pad, Layer, Wrap
Things like plates and bowls are made to stack; however, even those stackable items need some extra padding before they go in the boxes. Crumple packing paper in the bottom of boxes and add another layer on top once you’ve filled the box. Pliable cardboard can be cut down and layered between plates and bowls to help prevent chipping and breaking.
For glasses, take that packing paper and crumple it to fill the empty space in the glass then wrap each of them separately so they can’t clink against each other and break. Things that are less uniformly shaped will need extra padding, so be sure you’re packaging it to protect any parts that jut out. Those unusually shaped items are often best packed with bubble wrap and layers of crumpled paper around it.
