Cellophane and bubble wrap rolls and particularly sturdy cartons are a must. Cardboard box dimensions of 40 x 30 x 30 centimetres is recommended to bear a certain weight, they must be robust.
The same applies to the cartons that you will fill with crockery. In this case, given the delicacy of the material, the use of paper to wrap them in is essential to protect them during the move.
When moving an apartment to a higher level, is it better to dismantle the furniture or leave it whole?
There is no single answer to the question, it depends on so many things. There are positive aspects and negative aspects to each of these two options.
