Very thick material is recommended, since it will absorb the impacts of travelling well. Combined with bubble wrap and polystyrene packing materials, this will mean it is very likely your belongings will stay safe.

Protecting plates from knocking into one another is important. Each plate needs to be shielded from the other plates in the box if it is to survive. The good thing is that some things aren’t breakable at all. Clothes, for example, can be bundled into a black bag if they are ironable. If they wouldn’t cope well with creases or require dry cleaning afterwards, it’s best to put them in a suit bag and hang them up in the van.
